  • Course: Math Pathways Plus for College and Careers
  • Course #: MATH1050
  • Total Credits: 4

Course Description

This course is designed for students to establish a foundation for problem solving and critical thinking used in college level mathematics and career applications. Topics include practical applications of real numbers, geometry, measurement, data analysis, and algebraic equations. This course is taken at a slower pace than MATH1060, so that strategies for learning mathematics and a review of basic skills can be integrated throughout.

Course Evaluation

Refer to Course Syllabus for detailed information regarding the requirements and evaluation standards for this course. The Course Syllabus will be distributed the first week of the course.
