SAGE MATH Frequently Asked Questions


What happens if I don’t test into a Math class?

You should consider the following options:

1. Go home and get a good night’s rest.  You probably didn’t know you would be taking placement tests, or that they would take so long. You might want to try again tomorrow after a good night’s sleep.  On any subsequent try, ask to take only the math portion of the Accuplacer. You can take the Accuplacer once per day.  If your score is still not high enough:

2. Spend some time working on websites such as:

3. Sign up for the CNM Math MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) by contacting Suzanne Harris-Smith at 224-4000, ext. 50164 or by email at shsmith@cnm.edu. For more information about the Math MOOC, please call or email Ms. Harris-Smith.

4. Take a Math Test Preparation Class. The School of Adult and General Education (SAGE) offers MATH 0850 , a Test Prep course for CNM first time college students who are frequently challenged by skills deficiencies in Mathematics. The Test Prep course provides students with the skills needed to overcome academic deficiencies noted from taking the Accuplacer so they may get placed into to a college-level course. For more information contact SAGE.
