EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan State University students will be able to fulfill their general math requirement without passing college-level algebra starting in the fall of 2017.

The Lansing State Journal reports (https://on.lsj.com/293ufzG ) new quantitative learning classes are being introduced as an alternative for students. Doug Estry, associate provost of undergraduate education, says advisers are already recommending the new courses.

The college algebra credit has been mandatory for graduates regardless of major since the 1980s.

Estry says that if students pass both semesters of quantitative learning or one semester of quantitative plus a semester of college algebra they can be all set. The changes won’t affect students in programs such as engineering that have their own math requirements.
