Overview

The Mathematics Department offers college preparatory and college-level mathematics courses designed to prepare students for higher level mathematics and for liberals arts, STEM, and professional/technical pursuits. 

Initial assignment into mathematics courses is determined by performance on the COMPASS placement test or ACT/SAT.  Students who wish to place as highly as possible in the college-prep/college-level mathematics sequence may use the following resources prior to taking or re-taking (students are allowed to take the COMPASS test twice prior to enrollment) the placement test:

College Preparatory Mathematics

Math 095: College Prep Math

The college-preparatory course offering is MATH 095, College Prep Math, offered through the Math Solutions Center (MSC) locations.  (There is an MSC in Boise and in Nampa.)  While this course does not fulfill the general education mathematics requirement for an Associate’s degree, it does provide a student with the set of foundational skills needed for college-level mathematics courses.  The faculty affiliated with this course are dedicated to providing an encouraging learning environment, using technology to enhance the delivery of material and guided practice for the student.

Transfer Mathematics

These transfer mathematics courses are designed to support the needs of a student’s preferred educational path.  Each class promotes the development of critical thinking and problem solving skills.  In addition, the faculty is dedicated to keeping current with the uses of technology to enhance instruction.  CWI offers mathematics courses that will smoothly transfer to other Idaho four-year institutions and beyond.

Mission

To provide a safe and encouraging environment where students can learn mathematical skills and gain a deeper understanding of how mathematics will strengthen their ability to think analytically in both professional and personal settings.

Why This Program

Mathematics courses provide a student not only with a set of mathematics skills but also a strengthened ability to think critically.
