# Math Department

Mathematics and number sense have never been more important. Coastline math classes can help you prepare for a certificate, earn a degree, transfer to another school, advance in your career, or just understand the world better. We recognize, however, that students have a huge variety in their schedules, requirements, and background, so we've made it easier than ever to find a math class that meets your needs. The College offers classes taught by professors in a variety of formats, including classroom, cable TV, hybrid or online in 4-week, 8-week, 12-week and 16-week sessions.

Every class except Basic Mathematics and Statistics Pathway 1 requires either a prerequisite course, a qualifying score on the math placement test, or multiple measures placement. Learn more about the test and see the study guide at the Assessment Center . See below for a flowchart of the math department course sequence.

If you have any questions, or for more information on your textbook options, contact your instructor, Dr. Lisa Lee (llee@coastline.edu), Math Department Co-Chair, or Fred Feldon (ffeldon@coastline.edu), Math Department Co-Chair.
