MAT* 096: Algebraic Concepts, Number Sense & Geometry

0 Credits
(Formerly MATH 100)
This course satisfies the requirements for both MAT* 075  and MAT* 095  in a single semester. The course will provide the student with enhanced mathematical literacy in arithmetic, geometric, and algebraic concepts while strengthening and building problem solving and reasoning skills. Topics include: interpretation and analysis of charts and graphs; geometry and measurements; estimation strategies; ratio and proportion; percents and decimal numbers; properties of the whole numbers, integers, rationals and reals; operations of the real numbers; use of variables, equations and graphs to interpret problems in symbolic form; properties and theorems of the real number systems to solve linear, quadratic, rational, and literal equations; linear systems; and integer exponents. Practical problem applications and graphing calculators will be fully integrated into the course. A TI-83+ or TI-84+ graphing calculator is required for the course. Class: 6 hours per week.
Prerequisites: Placement by mathematics assessment test, and eligibility for ENG* 096  . (It is recommended that students consult with either the Mathematics Department or their advisor.)
Offered: Occasionally
