Dear student,
In Spring 2016, DVC students in many non-STEM, non-Business majors will have the opportunity to complete their math requirements in one semester, by completing the accelerated Statway sequence:

SP 16: Math 094/144 MTuWTh 9:00 am - 12:15 am, Prof. Anna Sohi; 8 units (4 transferable)

Statway aims to teach Statistics using a new, student-centered pedagogy through real world applications that are relevant to our daily lives. Math 075 (pre-algebra) is a prerequisite for the class.

If you think you might be interested in such a class, please come to an informational session on Monday, November 2, 3:30-4:30 pm in MA 251, or speak with your counselor about it, or e-mail the instructor, Anna Sohi asohi@dvc.edu

Below FYI, please find an indicative list of majors from UC Berkeley and CSUEB for which Statway may be a good fit:

LISTS OF MAJORS for students who complete STATWAY

Below you will find a list of majors from UC Berkeley and CSUEB that do not require any additional math courses as a part of the major beyond GE. Therefore IGETC, and therefore Statway, would be sufficient for these majors, if taken between Fall 2015 and Spring 2019.

The admissibility of Statway beyond the Spring of 2019 will be reviewed by the UC and CSU systems, once an on-going thorough evaluation of Statway student performance and outcomes is completed. Current research indicates that performance of Statway graduates may exceed the average performance of non-Statway students.
