This page provides some information and links to other information concerning developmental mathematics courses and materials at Cape Fear Community College.

Students are given a placement test before entering a math course so that they can be placed in the proper course (level of materials). Depending on the results of the placement test, students may be advised to register for one or two 8-week Developmental Math courses during their first semester at CFCC.

They are tested frequently as they complete small amounts of information.

Students who need any of DMA 050-080 will be enrolled in DMA 050, DMA 060, or DMA 065 (DMA 060, 070, 080 combined). Each of these classes will be conducted in a lecture, discussion format. Students will complete the majority of their coursework outside of class.
