At Tri-County Technical College, all math and science courses have mathematics prerequisite placement scores, which are based on the Accuplacer mathematics test. This test is a progressive test that starts at the Elementary Algebra level. If you answer enough questions correctly, you will be given harder questions and will be able to get a College Mathematics score. If you answer enough of the Elementary Algebra questions incorrectly, you will be given questions in the Arithmetic category.
Most students who do not test where they expect do so because of weak algebra skills. They may have taken algebra in high school but have not used it recently and have forgotten the rules and methods. Because of this, we have developed a method to refresh those important algebra skills in preparation for taking the Accuplacer math placement test.
MyMathTest is an online system for diagnosing and refreshing your knowledge of mathematics. It contains two programs for you to use to refresh your math skills to prepare for the Accuplacer Math Placement test. Choose the program that best matches your mathematical level. We recommend starting with the Basic Math to Intermediate Algebra and then working on the College Algebra to Trigonometry program if you have had those classes in the past. For a nominal fee ($14 in our Campus Store, $10 online), you get an access code to use for 16 weeks of online access to these programs. You can register for both programs using the same access code by following the directions below.
