MATH-118 - Mathematical Literacy

Conceptual and procedural tools will be developed that support the use of key mathematical concepts in a variety of contexts including numeracy, data analysis, mathematical modeling, algebraic procedures, and functions. An emphasis will be placed on modeling and problem solving using contextualized problems that will sometimes require technology or graphing calculator usage. Students may take this course in place of the four-course sequence Math 12a, 12b, 16a,16b. Upon successful completion, students are eligible to take Math 137, 142, and 145.
