 Basic Course Information
 Course Description: This course is intended to build or reinforce a foundation in fundamental mathematics concepts and skills. It includes the concepts of geometry, measurement, probability, and statistics with an emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking.
 Any required prerequisites: Students must make a C or better in Math 1314(College Algebra).
 Student Learning Outcomes
 Apply fundamental terms of geometry such as points, lines, and planes to describe two and three dimensional figures.
 Make and test conjectures about figures and geometric relationships.
 Use a variety of methods to identify and justify congruency and similarity of geometric objects.
 Perform geometric transformations.
 Demonstrate fundamental probability techniques and apply those techniques to solve problems.
 Explain the use of data collection and statistics as tools to reach reasonable conclusions.
 Recognize, examine, and utilize the basic principles of describing and presenting data.
 Perform measurement processes and explain the concept of a unit of measurement.
 Develop and use formulas for the perimeter, area, and volume for a variety of figures.
 Testing Requirements
 Students are not allowed to use any resources other than a calculator and scratch paper when taking the final exam. The final exam must be proctored.
 Major Course Requirements
 Major Requirement – There are 3 modules. There is homework for each section, a quiz for each chapter and a combined chapter test for each module.
