Developmental Math

In addition to supporting the Mission, Goals and Student Learning Outcomes of the Chico State Mathematics & Statistics Department, Developmental Mathematics courses focus on preparation for college level math courses and development of lifelong learning strategies.

Every student with developmental math status is expected to understand the CSU policy for Developmental Mathematics, Executive Order 665 (EO665).  The policy should be downloaded and read by every student.  READ IT, KNOW IT!
