Hello! Welcome (or welcome back) to Solano Community College. The goal of this website is to help you assess your math skills, and then help you decide which math course to take here at Solano. This website will focus on the three math courses that the majority of our students entering Solano enroll in for their first math course. The official math placement test taken at Solano Community College is administered by Accuplacer. You can find sample math Accuplacer problems here. We recommend that after spending time on this site, you set up a time to come take the math assessment test given on our campus. The Assessment Center is located on the main Fairfield campus in the 400 Building, Room #442. Math 320 (Pre-Algebra) - Our Math 320 course is geared toward the student who has basic math skills. A student entering Math 320 would have the ability to add, subtract, multiply, and divide two-digit numbers and fractions, would have a basic idea of perimeter and area, and would understand the idea of order of operations. If you believe that our Math 320 course may be the best starting place for you, please click here to see if you have the skills to be successful in this course. Math 330 (formerly Math 102) (Elementary Algebra) - Our Math 330 course is geared toward the student who already has the math skills that would be learned from our pre-algebra course. If you already have an understanding of signed (positive and negative) numbers, are able to combine like terms, can solve basic linear equations, and can plot points and graph basic lines on a rectangular coordinate system, Math 330 may be the course for you!

Math 104 (Intermediate Algebra) - Our Math 104 course is geared toward the student who has a strong understanding of elementary algebra. A student entering this course should already know how to solve linear equations and inequalities, graph equations of two variables, use exponent properties, factor polynomials, and simplify radicals.
