Quantitative Literacy

This class introduces students to a general education mathematics approach typically considered for non-STEM students who are looking for a thorough overarching mathematics class to prepare for math classes at the collegiate level. The study of this class will prepare students to culminate their mathematical understanding in preparation for classes such as college algebra and additional college math classes. Topics covered include logic, proportions, algebra, measurement and relations with a specific focus on the conceptual understanding of personal finance, statistics, probability, modeling and quantities. Students will participate in various learning practices ranging from daily assignments, quizzes, group work, presentations and overarching assessments to prepare students for a non-STEM collegiate route.
