Accelerate Your Math Success With ARC's STATWAY Program!
With STATWAY, students ready for Beginning Algebra can complete transfer-level Elementary Statistics in just 2 semesters (12 units) instead of 3 semesters (14 or 15 units). STATWAY is a proven program with a track record of student success.
Who should consider STATWAY?
- Students who have successful completed a college pre-algebra course (Math 32, 39, 42, or equivalent) or placement through the Los Rios assessment process.
- Students in Liberal Arts and Humanities majors.
STATWAY is not for Science, Math, Engineering, Technology, Business, or any major requiring a specific math course other than Statistics. Allied Health majors should consult with a counselor.
STATWAY will be offered in two formats in fall 2019. Each course is 6 units and taught at the ARC main campus. Daytime classes are 4 days/week, Monday-Thursday, 80 minutes/day; hybrid classes are 2 days/week 80 min/day in class with 2 days/week outside of class. Both formats include 10-15 additional hours of preparation outside of the required class time.
First Step with STATWAY: Orientation

Transferable: Course Not Transferable to UC or CSU
This is the first semester of a two-semester course that introduces the concepts of probability and statistics with requisite arithmetic and algebraic topics integrated throughout. It is structured to serve students planning to transfer and continue studies in humanities or social sciences. Statistics topics emphasize data analysis and include methods for collecting data, graphical and numerical descriptive statistics, correlation, linear regression, simple exponential regression, and introduction to probability. Algebra topics include proportional relationships (including variation) with applications, expressions, linear equations and systems with applications, functions, quadratic and exponential equations, and linear and exponential models. Learning strategies for success with an emphasis on study skills, resource acquisition, and maintaining a positive perspective towards learning are also discussed and applied.
Section: LEC 11223
Term: Full Term, August 22 to December 17
Instruction Mode: Online
Instructor: S. Gott
A scientific calculator is required for this class. The instructor highly recommends the Texas Instruments TI30-XIIS. This class includes the use of statistical software that will require additional purchase. Students will be required to work with other students in small groups. Students will be required to meet with the instructor at least once a week at a designated time, which will be determined the first week of class.
