Course Description
This course provides students with an opportunity to master basic mathematical concepts and processes. Topics include a complete study of arithmetic and elementary algebra: fractions, decimals, percentages, whole numbers, and integers; and the arithmetic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Credits earned in this course do not apply toward graduation.
Essential Objectives
1. Perform operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and apply them to problems involving whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. 2. Solve problems involving ratio, proportion, and percent. 3. Work interchangeably with fractions, decimals and percents. 4. Perform basic operations with integers (positive and negative numbers) and graph them on the number line. 5. Understand and apply concepts of area, perimeter, and volume. 6. Solve problems using both the metric and English systems of measure including conversions within and between the systems. 7. Define and use a variable. 8. Demonstrate an understanding of basic statistical concepts such as mean, mode, and median, and be able to read and interpret simple graphs, charts, and tables. 9. Apply these concepts and computational skills to solving problems that occur in various fields. The process will include estimating, setting up, solving, and appropriate rounding.

Congratulations On Completing a Demanding Course!
*You will be exempt from taking the Final Exam if you have an average of 80% or higher for the class, had 5 or less late assignments and have all homework assignments completed by Dec. 12.
To help you prepare for the Final Exam, review the Chapter Reviews of Key Terms and Concepts at the end of each Chapter. Watch Math Antics or Khan Academy for any of the areas you need to review. You must score a 70% on the Final Exam and 70% or higher class average to pass this course.     

Attendance Policy
Regular attendance and participation in classes are essential for success in and are completion requirements for courses at CCV. A student's failure to meet attendance requirements as specified in course descriptions will normally result in a nonsatisfactory grade.

In general, missing more than 20% of a course due to absences, lateness or early departures may jeopardize a student's ability to earn a satisfactory final grade.

Attending an onground or synchronous course means a student appeared in the live classroom for at least a meaningful portion of a given class meeting. Attending an online course means a student posted a discussion forum response, completed a quiz or attempted some other academically required activity. Simply viewing a course item or module does not count as attendance.
 Meeting the minimum attendance requirement for a course does not mean a student has satisfied the academic requirements for participation, which require students to go above and beyond simply attending a portion of the class. Faculty members will individually determine what constitutes participation in each course they teach and explain in their course descriptions how participation factors into a student's final grade.
Accessibility Services for Students with Disabilities:
CCV strives to mitigate barriers to course access for students with documented disabilities. To request accommodations, please

Provide disability documentation to the Accessibility Coordinator at your academic center. https://ccv.edu/discoverresources/studentswithdisabilities/

Request an appointment to meet with accessibility coordinator to discuss your request and create an accommodation plan.

Once created, students will share the accommodation plan with faculty. Please note, faculty cannot make disability accommodations outside of this process.
Academic Integrity
CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present as your own work something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
