Associate in Fine Arts Degree Math Course Sequence

This document is to help students better understand what math courses they should take to complete an AFA degree at Morton College.

An AFA degree is for students who plan to pursue a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree at a four year university.

In order to complete an AFA degree students must complete 4 credit hours of college level math (math courses that are numbered 102 or higher).

The length of a course sequence is determined by the placement of the student. Students are placed based on their high school math course results, college or dual credit math course results, ACT or SAT scores, or their score on a placement test.

Click on the placement option below that sounds most like you or the placement you have already received to see the list of classes you will need to take.

Placement Option 1

This placement option is for students:

  • who have been placed into MAT 080 -OR-
  • who did not receive Cs or better in their final math class in high school -OR-
  • who have not taken a math class in 5 or more years and do not use math on a regular basis.

Students at this placement level need a refresher of math fundamentals, such as, positive and negative numbers, fractions, decimals, and operations on these numbers.

Placement Option 2

This placement option is for students:

  • who have been placed into MAT 096 -OR-
  • who received Cs in their final math class in high school -OR-
  • who have not taken a math class in 5 or more years but use math on a somewhat regular basis.

Students at this placement level have basic math skills but need a refresher of basic algebra, such as, solving linear equations and inequalities and performing operations on polynomials.

Placement Option 3

This placement option is for students:

  • who have been placed into MAT 102 or above -OR-
  • who received Bs or higher in their final math class in high school -OR-
  • who have not taken a math class in 5 or more years but use math on a regular basis.

Students at this placement level have basic algebra skills but need a refresher of more complicated algebra skills, such as factoring polynomials and performing operations on rational and radical expressions.
