R2R: Math 1021/22

Math 1021 College Algebra (3 credit hours) and Math 1022 Trigonometry (3 credit hours) are sometimes referred to as R2R courses. The original R2R model created in 2004 had a hybrid delivery model featuring a teacher-directed classroom setting and a student-centered learning lab design that required much more active participation from students than passive lecture-only formats prior to that time. This model is still in place today for the non-online versions. The number of hours in class each week and the number of required LSU Math Lab hours each week vary by course and semester.

Math 1021 Regular

The prerequisite requirement to enroll in a regular section of Math 1021 is a minimum Math ACT score of 21 or a minimum ALEKS score of 41. These sections are numbered 1-99, with the sections numbered 51-99 being online. About 75-99% of the instruction in the online section is delivered via the web. All tests and the Final Exam must be taken in person on campus.

Math 1021 Enhanced

Students who do not meet one of these minimum requirements for a regular section of Math 1021 but choose to major in an area that requires Math 1021 may be placed in a Math 1021 Enhanced section. These sections are enhanced with content designed specifically to help unprepared students to be successful in College Algebra. These sections are numbered 101-199, with the sections numbered 151-199 being online. About 75-99% of the instruction in the online section is delivered via the web. All tests and the Final Exam must be taken in person on campus.

Math 1022

The prerequisite requirement to enroll in a section of Math 1022 is credit in Math 1021 or a minimum Math ACT score of 25. These sections are numbered 1-99, with the sections numbered 51-99 being online. About 75-99% of the instruction in the online section is delivered via the web. All tests and the Final Exam must be taken in person on campus.

Dual Enrollment

A Dual Enrollment model for Math 1021 and Math 1022 is offered to high school students at high schools participating in our LSU Dual Enrollment Program. These sections are numbered 201-599.

LSU Online

There are also Math 1021 and Math 1022 classes for those students participating in degree programs offered by LSU Online. These sections are numbered 601-699. Testing is done using ProctorU.

Assessments

For every model, all assessments are delivered using specialized software called MyMathLab. Homework, quizzes, and tests are taken using exercises algorithmically generated by the software. Help Me Solve This and View an Example buttons are available to help guide students through the homework, and the etext and streaming videos can be accessed through the software as well. Individual videos for each section in both courses, recorded at LSU using experienced instructors and professors, are available on the math website for those students who want additional classroom instruction. Before the due date, most homework exercises can be attempted an unlimited number of times, and quizzes can be attempted up to ten times. The tests are proctored and protected by a password and/or IP address and most have a multi-day, student-friendly schedule.
