Mathematics Placement Test Information
General Information: Lakeland Community College requires placement testing in mathematics. Students who plan to enroll in a Mathematics course, or register for their 13th cumulative credit, may be required to take the COMPASS Placement Test first.
Suggested Practice Tests and Resources: The following is a list of practice tests approved by the Lakeland Community College Mathematics Department.

  • Oakland Community College has a 60 question practice test with topics that ranges from basic operations with integers to trigonometry.

  • The University of Maryland has a 32 question multiple choice test that offers four different grading options.

  • Glendale Community College categorizes practice test into four subject areas: numerical skills, elementary algebra, intermediate algebra and college algebra.

Mathematics Department Mission
The Mission of the Mathematics Department of Lakeland Community College is to provide quality instruction in mathematics to all students as well as offer mathematics courses that will support other departments and programs in the College. This quality instruction and these courses will:

  • prepare all students with the mathematical skills and concepts required for each student's program of study (technical, transfer and general studies).

  • provide experiences for all students to grow in their knowledge of mathematics from their own starting points. 

  • provide learning and laboratory experiences that build skills and concepts with the appropriate use of technology.

  • promote critical thinking and problems solving.

  • develop mathematical power and the ability to communicate mathematically. 

  • develop students' awareness of careers in mathematics and a vision of themselves using mathematics effectively in their chosen fields.
