ABE 014
Applied Math II


Credits: 1- 9
Clock Hours per Quarter: 100

AA Discipline:

Lecture Hours:80    Lab Hours:20


Description
Students will read, write, and interpret mathematical information by measuring whole numbers and extending skills in fractions, decimals, ratios, and percents. Students will use basic patterns, data, algebraic concepts, measurement, geometry, and computational skills to solve 1-3 step theme based contextualized word problems. This course will integrate these skills into contextualized units. Students completing this course with a 70% or better will meet the requirements of High School 21+ to earn 1 credit of high school math equivalency. All students who are under 18 years of age must have a signed release form from their school district. Students 16-17 years of age must first be admitted to the College following the Alternative Education Program (AEP) Eligibility or the Underage Admissions Policy, which is available in the High School Programs office. Prerequisite: Grade of C or higher in ABE 013, CASAS Score of 220, or instructor permission.

Intended Learning Outcomes
  • General Program Learning 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.
    • Use interpersonal skills and strategies in a multicultural context to work collaboratively, solve problems, and perform tasks.
  • Detailed course outcomes:
    • Read, write, compare, and estimate whole numbers to the billions and decimals to the thousandths using real life examples.
    • Add, subtract, multiply, and divide whole numbers and solve multi-step contextualized word problems.
    • Read, write, and compare benchmark fractions. Add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions, and apply to real life applications.
    • Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals, including money, and apply to multi-step word problems.
    • Convert fractions to decimals and percents, and use percents in a contextualized setting including tax, tip, interest, banking, paychecks, commission, and percent change.
    • Read and interpret bar, line, and circle graphs, and communicate results in writing.
    • Use data and statistics including mean, median, mode, and range in contextualized setting.
    • Add, subtract, multiply, and divide negative and positive numbers, using correct order of operations. Evaluate one- and two-step equations and use simple algebraic formulas such as interest, distance, volume, and circumference.
    • Accurately measure using both the stand and metric systems, and make simple conversion within and between systems as applicable to contextualized themes.
    • Use ratio and proportions and apply to problem solving.
    • Apply geometric concepts including lines, area, perimeter, volume, polygons, and circles to contextualize problem solving.
    • Produce clear and complete written solutions.
    • Take responsibility for own learning, apply oneself effectively to the study of math, and utilize college resources for extra support.
    • 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 1-3 step theme-based contextualized word problems.
