WNC students who want to get their math requirements out of the way can now complete them more quickly. This spring, WNC Carson City is offering accelerated math courses that will allow students to complete several math requirements during the same semester, keeping them on track toward graduation.

Students can now take MATH 95 during the first eight weeks of the spring 2013 semester, followed by MATH 96 and Math 120 during the second eight weeks.

"This is a great opportunity for students to get their math requirements done more efficiently,” said Deborah Case, director of Counseling Services. “I’m hopeful that many students will take advantage of this opportunity.”

Offerings will include two sections of MATH 95 and one section each of MATH 96 and MATH 120. MATH 95 is a first course in algebra. It provides a foundation for the math used in business, science, engineering and related fields. MATH 96 allows students to study more advanced algebraic problems and principals. Students taking Math 120 will study probability, statistics, business, finance and consumer mathematics. The course is broad in scope and emphasizes applications.
