Math Mini Prep Program

Preparing for the placement test or a developmental math (DM) course? Want to review the basics before class begins? HCC offers online, self-paced Math Mini Prep for free.

Online classes are not facilitated, but still provide students with an intensive review of basic mathematics to college algebra at no cost. Pre- and post-assessments and math study skills are part of the review.

Choose from Developmental Math IDM II and III, or DM IV

Quick Math Prep Program

Quick Math Prep classes provide students with a review of Basic Math to College Algebra. The four areas of preparation classes are Basic Mathematics, Pre-Algebra, Introduction to Algebra, and Intermediate Algebra. Classes take place throughout the year, so students will be able to review material before taking a Developmental Math (DM) course or before taking the HCC Mathematics Placement Test (MPT). Students will review questions that are commonly found on the MPT which can help place students in a higher DM course or out of DM courses at HCC.
