MTH1013GS - Survey of Mathematics
A course designed to acquaint students with a range of mathematical topics through the use of problem solving and practical applications of skills and principles. Topics may include, but are not limited to, problem solving, set theory, historical systems of numeration, algebraic equations, geometry, consumer mathematics, and statistics.
The following intended learning outcomes will be achieved by this course:
- Develop critical thinking and problem solving skills.
- Develop an understanding of the history and development of the base-ten numeration system.
- Solve real number system applications using rules and properties of operations.
- Evaluate and solve algebraic expressions and equations.
- Estimate and solve financial applications involving decimal numbers, fractions, ratios, rates, proportions, interest, and percents.
- Use geometric concepts and formulas for solving real-life applications.
- Calculate and critically interpret statistical data.
Passing score on Math competency exam, completion of INT0020/MTH0013, or ACT/SAT approved score.
