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 toward graduation.

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 Hartness 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.

Please note: In order to receive accommodations for disabilities in this course, students must make an appointment to see the Americans with Disabilities Coordinator in their site and bring documentation with them.

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.
