Clock Hours per Quarter: 100

AA Discipline:

Lecture Hours:80    Lab Hours:20


Description
Students will read, write, and interpret basic mathematical information using whole numbers, fractions, benchmark percents, and decimals. Students will be introduced to basic patterns, data, algebraic concepts, measurement, geometry, and computational skills to solve 1-2 step contextualized real life problems. All students who are under 18 years of age must have a signed release from their school district. Students 16-17 years of age must first be admitted to the College following Alternative Education Program (AEP) Eligibility or the Underage Admission policy, which is available in the High School Programs office. Prerequisite: Instructor permission or CASAS Score 195-225.

Intended Learning Outcomes
  • General Course Outcomes:
    • Demonstrate academic reading, writing, oral communication and math skills through metacognition and the development of critical thinking and comprehension strategies.
    • Recognize oneself as a learner and citizen capable of accomplishing one's academic and professional goals and contributing to the larger community.
    • Engage in campus activities, utilize campus resources, and demonstrate the ability to transition to and navigate academic and professional environments.
    • Demonstrate an increase in computer literacy and proficiency in using technology for academic and professional purposes.
  • Detailed Course Outcomes
    • Read, write, compare, and estimate whole numbers to the millions and decimals to the hundredths.
    • Add, subtract, multiply, and divide whole numbers and solve 1-2 step contextualized word problems.
    • Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals and money, and apply to 1-2 step contextualized word problems.
    • Read, write, and compare benchmark fractions. Use mixed, improper, and equivalent fractions. Add and subtract fractions with like and unlike denominators. Multiply and divide fractions. Apply these to real life applications.
    • Read and interpret basic pictographs and bar, line, and circle graphs, and communicate results in writing.
    • Use basic data and statistics including mean, mode, median, and range.
    • Identify algebraic concepts including negative and positive numbers, order of operations, and evaluate 1-step equations in a contextualized setting.
    • Accurate measure using both the standard and metric system, and make simple conversions within and between systems as applicable to contextualized themes.
    • Use geometric concepts including lines, area, perimeter, volume, and coordinate geometry in a contextualized setting.
    • Use the basic functions of a 4-function calculator, and determine degree of precision needed to solve problems.
    • Take responsibility for own learning to progress through the learning process, apply oneself effectively to the study of math, and utilize campus resources for additional support in math.
    • Compile evidence through a reflective portfolio assessment process, which documents academic growth, increased proficiency in, and knowledge of content area skills.

  • Course Topics
  • Basic patterns, data, algebraic concepts, measurement, geometry, and computational skills to solve 1-2 step contextualized real-life problems.
