COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
Untitled document
1.  Master arithmetic and math skills designated by initial diagnostic and apply in academic, workplace, and personal situations.
2.  Use math learning strategies independently.
3.  Use personalized learning objectives and goals in math based on assessment and self-analysis.
4.  Demonstrate greater ability and confidence to develop and proceed toward future 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 basic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to whole numbers, fractions, mixed numbers, and decimals;
2. Apply basic operations to signed numbers and algebraic expressions;
3. Represent a number in its equivalent decimal, fraction, percent, scientific notation;
4. Interpret data from basic graphs, charts, and tables;
5. Use tables of equivalents to convert units of English and metric measurements;
6. Identify basic math language and translate into numerals and symbols;
7. Use rounding and estimating to solve word problems and verify answers;
8. Interpret and apply strategies to solve basic word problems containing whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percents, and signed numbers;
9. Set up and solve basic linear and proportional equations;
10. Apply formulas for perimeter, area, and volume of regular and  irregular shapes to solve measurement problems;
11. Apply order of operations when solving math problems.
