Various; distance learning format.
30 hours (15 weeks).
December 2012 - Present.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: analyze types of numbers, percentages, fractions, decimals, graphs, and charts; evaluate slope types, inequalities, and various function types (basic, compound, inverse, etc.) and solve them; demonstrate an understanding of mathematical transformations, translations, dilations, rotations, and reflections; compare different units of measurement and convert them from one system to another; discover and compare trigonometry fundamentals; examine and critique statistics, populations, samplings, and the applications for each; develop knowledge of calculating and identifying probability, with dependent and complex events, and in permutations; evaluate and compute mathematical methods used to determine election results; analyze probability distributions, including area under the normal curve using Z-scores; and calculate values regarding financial management such as compound interest, sinking funds, and ROIs (Return on Investments).
Major topics include: basic number sense and operations ratios, proportions and scale factor; estimation and rounding; exponents and square roots; expressions and equations in algebra; linear equations and inequalities; graphing and evaluating functions; quadratic equations and functions; logarithmic and exponential functions; rational expressions and equations; measurement and conversion; transformations in geometry; right triangles and the pythagorean theorem; trigonometry fundamentals; area and perimeter; surface area and volume; lines and angles in geometry; symmetry, similarity and congruence; statistics, populations and sampling; calculating and understanding probability; critical thinking and problem solving in math; and mathematical methods for elections.
In the lower division baccalaurate degree category, 3 semester hours in Calculus, College Math, or as a general elective (12/16).
