Need online math credit - page 3

I need to take an online intermediate algebra class. Just before graduation my school told me my prereq math credits were not enough. They did let me participate in the pinning but they will not send... Read More

    Did you check out the ALEKS site for a math course? You can do a free trial, which will you give 3 hours access to their site. I really kinda liked the Basic Math, thought the Intermediate Algebra was hard... good luck!

    I just finished College Algebra thru Straighterline today (took a week) and am having my scores transcripted thru Fort Hayes State University. It cost me $99+39 and Fort Hayes lists the credit just as I would have taken it direct thru them for a $30 fee. YOu could ask if they would accept a College Algebra class thru FHSU and go that route.

    Are you still able to do this? Could explain the process shoot me a email to

    Did your straightline credits transfer ok? I am in a bind and need my math credits like ASAP as well!

    I'm currently in the Straighterline College Algebra. Honestly, it's been years since I took any math, so I knew I had forgotten a lot of it, but more than I realized. I thought I'd breeze through it pretty quick BUT after the getting a low grade on the second exam (only 15 questions worth 5 pts each on the first 4 exams for 75 pts each), I had to slow down and spend much more time on learning the material. I should finish before 8 wks and probably could have been a little faster, but I had another course I was doing this summer as well (that I just finished). So, now I'm concentrating on it. Since there are only exams with no homework or quiz grades, you have to get good grades on every test (well, or only do poorly on one as in my case).

    My first test (over 1 chapter) I did well. The 2nd test (over 3 chapters) I bombed, the 3rd test (over 4 chapters) I did well again. Now I'm studying for the 4th test (over 5 chapters). You get 2 hrs on the first each of the tests which does give you adequate time to go back through the exam twice and double check answers. That was my failure on exam 2 - I didn't go back through the test and double check myself. The Final gives you the same 2 hrs, but I believe has many more problems on it (like 40 questions still 5 pts each for a 200 pt final). I'm hoping completing 40 questions in 2 hrs is doable for me - I'm a bit worried about that. You also have to call in and get a password to take it. There are options to proctor as well, but my college didn't require it. You need to check with wherever you are transferring the credit IF they will accept it and how they'd like to received it (direct through Straighterline or ACE). My college said they would accept it directly, but cautioned me not to take any additional because they would only take the one course.

    If you take the course and don't get a 70%, you will have to retake it, but they will only average the grade (not replace). I found a coupon code online so my course was free (worth $39), so I just paid the $99/month (actually only 28 days). I'm in my second month (another $99) which I had hoped not to have to pay, but I decided better to slow down and improve my scores then be forced to retake for an averaged grade.

    In order to understand some concepts, I did have to look elsewhere online, but there are videos and an online presentation of concepts plus links within the course to more information. As for the book, I didn't buy it. I think there are enough youtube videos and online math information that it wouldn't be required, but I cannot tell you if that would have helped for me to work the recommended problems assigned in each chapter.

    The post of mine to which you're referring is more than four years old. Fort Hays State University no longer transcribes Straighterline's math courses.

    Wow, I realize the original post is super old but so glad it was brought up again. I had not considered taking a CLEP for math. I already have a B.A. but did not have to take a "real" math class though I'm great at math. I actually have an appointment to register for algebra this Tuesday. This thread just saved me $$!

    How did you finish the class within 2 weeks? I just signed up for Physics I and Calculus II, and I am trying to finish the classes as soon as possible.

    Are you able to send me a message as I need to take like 7 courses to make up credits to enroll in BSN. I am from Iowa, and need credits to be able to transfer.

    Hi there,

    I am an Accounting and Finance student graduating this year. My College doesn't have math courses. I need some math courses for my MFE Applications next year. I need Partial Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Calculus II, 1 Probabilty course and 1 advanced statistics course. I am trying to find a way to take all of these courses in 5 week length each and finish in a year. Some courses can be taken together too. I have been helpless last 2 months and am in total despair. Money is also a concern of mine. The most that I have is a wage day job that I can handle so cost also plays an important role for me.

    Your post gave me a lot of motivation. If you can suggest all or few of these courses in a flexible and cheaper way, I would be hugely grateful to you. Maybe your suggestion can solve my problem. I'll await your comment.
