Students place into this level of Liberal Arts Mathematics based on their Math Placement Test and may use this course to satisfy the prerequisite for entry into Finite Mathematics. The course is directed by the Mathematics faculty in collaboration with the Education Enhancement Program. It is taught via individual tutoring, small group workshops, and computer assisted instruction. Students enrolled in this class do not receive credit towards graduation, but receive one basic supplemental unit upon successful completion of the course.

Computer instruction is provided via a web-based program. This program is available to all students enrolled in MTH 100S and is designed to improve understanding of materials covered in the course.
