MATH 092 - Foundations of Mathematical Reasoning
Development of algebraic and numerical skills in a context of applications and problem-solving skills and to prepare students for a mathematics foundation course. Topics include quantitative relationships, patterning and algebraic reasoning, functional reasoning, probabilistic and statistical reasoning, incorporating quantitative communication skills and technology. This course does not satisfy the prerequisite for MATH 130 , MATH 150 , or MATH 165 . Not intended for students who have a grade of C or better in MATH 093 , MATH 096 , or their equivalent. PREREQUISITE(S): A grade of an H or better in MATH 080 , completion or appropriate score on the mathematics assessment test; or consent of department. Assessment Level(s):
AELW 940 / ELAI 990 , READ 120 , or AELR 930 / ELAR 980 Three hours each week.
3 semester hours
THREE EQUIVALENT CREDIT HOURS. NOT APPLICABLE TO A DEGREE OR CERTIFICATE. MAY NOT BE USED TO SATISFY DEGREE REQUIREMENTS. NOT INCLUDED IN GPA CALCULATION.
Upon completion of this course a student will be able to:
- Use number concepts to describe quantitative relationships in a variety of contexts.
- Communicate, interpret and explain mathematical concepts using appropriate symbolic notation and vocabulary.
- Manipulate and solve equations, using appropriate mathematical techniques and technology.
- Solve word problems in various contexts and interpret results by using mathematical concepts with appropriate terms and units.
- Solve systems of two equations graphically and algebraically, and interpret the results in an appropriate manner.
- Recognize whether a linear or non-linear mathematical model is appropriate and use the appropriate model to represent the relationships between variables.
- Summarize and interpret data using graphs, tables, technology, and statistics (including measures of central tendencies and dispersion).
- Collect data and use information from the data to make reasonable conclusions by employing appropriate numerical and algebraic concepts such as fractions, ratios, decimals, and percents.
