Developmental Mathematics

Welcome to Frederick Community College Developmental Mathematics!
Did you know that most students who place into developmental math are able to take the credit math course required for their degree program while learning foundational math skills required for that course.  This means a student completes developmental math and credit math in ONE semester!
General Ed Core

Students need to speak with an Advisor before registering for any of these courses to ensure proper placement in course required for degree program.
In addition to the courses listed above, Frederick Community College has a course available for students who, after taking the mathematics placement test, demonstrate a need for preparation for college mathematics.  This class, MATH 50, will be available beginning in Summer 2019. 
If you need more information or have any questions, contact the Developmental Program Manager, Kylena Cross, by telephone, 301-629-7835, or by email, [email protected] .

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I start?
To begin your math studies at FCC, you must take the Math Placement Test.
You may be exempt from taking the Math Placement Test.  Visit the Testing Center FAQ page to find out whether you are exempt.

You may take the Math Placement Test twice before enrolling in a math course.  If you are not satisfied with your math placement after the first attempt, then you may re-test.  However, once you begin taking any developmental math class, you cannot take the Math Placement Test.

To prepare for the Math Placement Test, you can access the official web-based study app and free accuplacer study questions on the College Board site.  If you would like assistance on any of these problems, then feel free to visit the STEM center during regular business hours for walk-in tutoring.
