COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
Untitled document
1. Master math skills to the appropriate level, as diagnosed in initial assessment, and apply to academic, workplace, and personal situations.
2. Use independent learning skills to improve math competency.
3. Use personalized learning objectives and goals in math based on assessment and self-analysis.
4. Demonstrate improved confidence and ability necessary to achieve math goals.

Objectives: Untitled document
Based on initial assessment, students will be assigned individual programs of study. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to achieve some or all of the following objectives, as assigned by the instructor:
1. Apply addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and exponential operations to rational numbers;
2. Apply addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and exponential operations to polynomials;
3. Represent a rational number in its equivalent decimal, fraction, percent, and/or scientific notation form;
4. Interpret data from basic graphs, charts, and tables;
5. Use tables of equivalents to convert units of English (U.S.) and metric measurements;
6. Translate basic math phrases and sentences into algebraic expressions and equations;
7. Set up and solve basic linear and proportional equations;
8. Use number logic to solve multi-step word problems and verify answers;
9. Use proportions and algebraic equations to solve word problems that require one to two steps (operations) and involve percents, measurement, rates, and/or geometric properties;
10. Apply formulae for perimeter, area, and volume of regular and irregular shapes to solve geometric problems;
11. Apply order of operations to simplify arithmetic and algebraic expressions involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and exponents.
