Modesto Junior College

Seats available in Math 89 fall classes

Modesto Junior College recently added six new Math 89 – Intermediate Algebra Essentials classes for the fall semester. These courses are still open for enrollment with over 80 seats available.  Open classes are available for both Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday patterns, and are offered during the day and evening.

Math 89 is designed to prepare students for non-science, technology, engineering and mathematics (non-STEM) majors. The course is 4 units, versus 5 units for the traditional Math 90 course, and requires 72 class hours versus 90 for the traditional course.  Students in non-STEM fields are encouraged to enroll in this new Math 89 course.

"These are high demand math classes that fill up quickly, so this presents an ideal opportunity, especially for new students, to take one of these classes," said Brian Sanders, dean of the Science, Mathematics and Engineering Division at MJC.

To view all open fall math classes go to MJC’s online class schedule at, click on Math under “Subjects” and click “Open” under “Status of class.”  For additional information or questions on math courses, please contact the Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Division Office at (209) 575-6173.
