The Competency-Based Mathematics Program at Truman State University puts you in the driver’s seat as you explore College Algebra (Truman’s MATH 156) and Plane-Trigonometry (MATH 157) at your own pace. Computer-assisted learning methods help you:
The Competency-based Mathematics program primarily serves high schools in Missouri looking for alternative approaches to traditional dual-credit delivery systems. The CBM system is ideal for small schools, schools without a teacher qualified to teach dual credit under state rules, and schools wanting to improve the overall readiness of their students to advance to higher-level math classes.
Options for home schooled students will be coming soon!
