College Career Math Ready

College Career Math Ready (CCMR) is a free course designed for high school seniors who have completed Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II and need a transition course to get them ready for college-level coursework. The course emphasizes understanding of mathematics concepts rather than memorizing procedures. By engaging students in real-world applications, CCMR develops critical-thinking skills that students will use in college and their careers. The course has been implemented in hundreds of high schools across the nation and has a proven track record of increasing student readiness. Scroll down to see additional information about and resources for the College Career Math Ready course, including our Multiplying Opportunities Elevate video, upcoming training opportunities, additional resources to learn more, current schools offering the CCMR course, and colleges accepting College Career Math Ready as a measure for college-level math placement.

Provide your students with the opportunity to improve their ACT or SAT scores (Oklahoma students see typical gains of 2-3 points on their ACT after taking this course), reduce the need for college remediation, and engage in collaborative mathematics learning opportunities by providing the College Career Math Ready (CCMR) Course at your school.
