MTH 085 - Math Literacy


Min Credits: 3

Math Literacy is a one-semester course for non-calculus students bridging the gap between basic arithmetic and college-level statistics and quantitative reasoning courses. Students develop conceptual and procedural tools that support mathematical concepts in a variety of contexts. In this course, the relevancy of math is emphasized by analyzing and solving real-life problems before looking at the math tools beneath the surface. Topics include numeracy, proportional reasoning, algebraic reasoning, functions, and graphing. Successful completion of this course will prepare students for MTH 105  (Quantitative Reasoning) or STA 120  (Beginning Statistics). Students may also take MTH 090  (Intermediate Algebra) upon completion if they wish to prepare for MTH 109  (College Algebra).
