Students will examine the different topics in K-8 algebra from an advanced perspective. Examinations are proctored.

**Placement Level:** PPL score of 18-100% , SAT I MSS 500-800, ACT MATH 18-36 required. Test scores expire after 2 years for Math 106 and 107 only. SAT/ACT placement is for first year students only.

**Comments**: This course is generally for majors within the College of Education. This course** cannot be used as a prerequisite **for any other mathematics courses including Math 108 or 112 (except Math 302A for Elementary Education.)
