MAT 083 Essential Mathematics

Credits: (6EQ)
This course focuses on math for everyday life. Topics include fluency with numbers, proportional reasoning, data interpretation, algebraic reasoning, modeling, and communicating quantitative information. Development of arithmetic skills (fractions, decimals, proportions, and percents) is incorporated throughout the course. Mathematical concepts are investigated through group problems and class discussions based on real-life contexts of citizenship, personal finances, and medical literacy. This course prepares students to take a college-level non-STEM course in mathematics, such as MAT 104 , MAT 112 , MAT 113 , or MAT 118 . Students needing MAT 114  will also need to take MAT 088 . Prerequisite(s): Completion of RDG 087  or placement into a higher RDG level.
