Students are challenged to analyze and dissect problems in various mathematical fields through contextualize applications of the topics, with the purpose of focusing on developing students' analytical and logical reasoning skills. Topics include numeracy; operations with numbers; functions; solving linear equations; graphically organizing data; constructing single and bi-variate graphs; reading, analyzing and interpreting graphs; applying mathematics in business accounting and personal finance; and practical geometry. This course is intended for students planning to major in any of the following fields of study: Fine Arts, Visual and Performing Arts, Humanities, Behavioral Sciences, Social Sciences, Business and related Managerial Sciences, Economics, or Life Sciences. This course is not intended for students planning to major in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields of study.

If you want to learn a completely different aspect of mathematics, this course will definitely provide an opportunity to learn about topics and processes that are not part of any other math course you have seen; but more importantly this is the case not solely because of the content, but because of the way in which the content will be covered.

As a student of this course, you want to come in with a working basis of basic prealgebra conceptual and computational skills, including working knowledge in performing operations with fractions, decimals and percents, evaluating formulas at specific variable values, factoring composite numbers into their prime factor decomposition, using exponents to make expressions easier to express, knowledge of perfect squares, and interpreting a written statement into its equivalent mathematical expression.

What is just as important for you to have when entering this course, is a strong foundation on reading, writing and communication skills. Throughout the course, there will be important analytic reading and writing assignments for which oral presentations will be a meaningful component of the course.

You will explore mathematical topics in depth. The majority of all these topics are based on actual real-life data and phenomena. This course focuses on conceptual understanding where analytical reasoning and critical thinking skills will lead you to analyze and make conclusions of about the math application. This course has been developed not just to help you for future math course, but more importantly for all your future college courses.
