Discipline-level learning outcomes:

Area 3 -Math:   Demonstrate Basic Mathematical Skills and Knowledge

The purpose of the mathematics component of the core curriculum is to develop quantitative literacy with an ability to apply basic mathematical tools in the solution of real-world problems.

M-1 Solve mathematical problems by using arithmetic, algebraic, or geometric skills.

M-2 Translate basic mathematical information verbally, numerically, graphically, or symbolically. 

M-3 Solve mathematical problems using appropriate technology.

M-4 Interpret mathematical models such as formulas, graphs, tables, or schematics.

M-5 Solve contextual problems using mathematical processes.

Means of accomplishing learning outcomes:

Teacher Facilitated: The teacher will be leading class discussions on the material contained in the text during each class period. 

Student-Centered: The students will be solving problems during each class period using their own graphing calculators.  

Office Hours: The instructor will be available during office hours for individual assistance.  The instructor’s schedule can be found posted on their office door and/or via their individual web site.

ACE Tutors: Student tutors are available to provide individualized help.  Hours can be found posted each semester on the lab door and/or via the web site.
