Course Description

This course introduces students to math relevance in college and careers and is designed to strengthen a student's math literacy, problem solving, computational math, and fundamental algebra skills. During the semester, students engage in activities and assignments associated with a college-level math course, build foundational mathematical skills, utilize available online and other resources, and develop strategies and behaviors associated with successful college learning. Credits earned in this course do not apply to degree program completion.

Essential Objectives

1. Recognize and apply mathematical thinking in professional and personal contexts.
2. Utilize formulas, functions, graphs, and operations to effectively solve mathematical, algebraic, and geometric problems.
3. Meet college-level expectations through appropriate quality of work, time-management, decision-making, punctuality, attitude, and the balance of priorities.
4. Evaluate progress throughout the semester and make adjustments as needed with respect to educational and professional goals.
5. Explain, in both group and individual settings, the process for solving problems, including methods that were used and results that were achieved.
6. Utilize library and other open educational resources to access and explore topical information.
7. Explore the concept of critical thinking and demonstrate interpretation and analysis skills.
8. Develop and apply effective teamwork and communication skills in the college environment, including expressing ideas, asking questions, and seeking help.

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 non-satisfactory 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 on-ground 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
  1. Provide disability documentation to the Accessibility Coordinator at your academic center. https://ccv.edu/discover-resources/students-with-disabilities/
  2. Request an appointment to meet with accessibility coordinator to discuss your request and create an accommodation plan.
  3. 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.
