Quick Step Plus College Algebra is a Quick Step course modeled after JCCC’s self-paced math courses. A JCCC math professor assesses the student’s mastery of the course content for credit. The assessment is done at the high school for all schools that meet the required JCCC enrollment. Successful students will earn 3 credit hours of College Algebra credit.
