As part of your first year advising experience, your academic advisor will almost always suggest that you complete a freshman-level math course sometime in your first two college semesters. Working closely with your advisor to pick the right math class for your college and career goals is critical to your success. No one finds it easy to complete a course when the skills that are taught do not seem connected to the rest of a plan of study, and experts now realize that College Algebra is not always the most useful course for everyone. Through an Oklahoma State Regents of Higher Education initiative, Cameron University has identified multiple math pathways that emphasize the importance of learning the mathematics necessary for specific majors and careers. These efforts to make math more relevant stem from a desire to see our students succeed in their chosen fields and in life.
