All college students, regardless of their college major, need to be able to make reasonable decisions about fiscal, environmental, and health issues that require quantitative reasoning skills. A collaborative, activity-based approach is used in this course to explore numerical relationships, graphs, proportional relationships, algebraic reasoning, and problem solving using linear, exponential and other mathematical models. Students will develop conceptual and procedural tools that support the use of key mathematical concepts in a variety of contexts. This course is not designed for Science, Engineering, or Math students and/or others who require calculus. This course may be used as the prerequisite for Quantitative Reasoning, Principles of Geometry, General Chemistry, and/or Survey of Physics.
