Overview

MTH069 is an introductory math course for students who have not completed high school math and/or who need to build confidence in their math skills. MTH149 satisfies the math entry requirements for most college level programs, while MTH196/197/198 level courses satisfy the entry requirements for most degree programs. (Note that the prerequisites for MTH196/197/198 are often MTH069 (B grade or higher) and/or MTH149.)

Enrolment in a math upgrading course can be determined this way:

  • If you have not completed Grade 12C math, register in MTH069. You will be assessed during the first class to determine whether you will need to complete both MTH069 and MTH149. MTH069 is a credit course. It is available in-class or online.
  • If you have already completed Grade 12C math but need a refresher, register for MTH149. MTH149 is credit course. It is available in-class or online.

Successful completion of MTH196, MTH197 or MTH198 satisfies the math entry requirements for most applied degree programs.

If you are interested in applying to an institution other than Seneca keep the course outlines and addenda for case-by-case reviews.

MTH069
Mathematics Level I
Availability
 

Prerequisite(s):

Basic arithmetic skills (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division)

This is an introductory course in mathematics. By the end of the course, students will have acquired problem-solving and mathematical skills and have demonstrated the ability to apply mathematical principles to typical problems that arise in a variety of work places, including business, science, health care and technology. Using a modular approach, MTH069 also provides the first step for students wishing to upgrade their math skills to the Grade 12C level.

MTH149
Foundations of Mathematics
Availability
 

Prerequisite(s):

Grade 12C/U Math or Equivalent

This one-semester course provides a review of fundamental math concepts. These essential math skills are required for success in college programs requiring a solid foundation in mathematics, such as sciences, technology or business. It is designed to meet the needs of individuals that have completed Grade 12 math but need a quick review in preparation for college level or skills training programs. Successful completion of the course is generally accepted as equivalent to a Grade 12 standing in mathematics. It does not, however, qualify the student for an Ontario Grade 12 math credit.
