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.

Academic Honesty: 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.
