Become a mathematician, financial analyst, actuary, or teacher!
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 at the Assessment Center. If you have any questions, or want information on your textbook options, contact a Math Department Chairperson.
State law AB 705 is now in effect. Placement testing has been eliminated. All students may enroll directly into transfer, college-level math. Placement is now based primarily on high school grades. Students who have been out of high school for more than 10 years, studied outside the U.S., or fall into other circumstances where high school grades do not apply may complete the Guided Self Placement. See your Counselor or visit the Assessment Center for more information.
