MAT 084 Mathematical Literacy

Credits: (4EQ)
This course focuses on mathematics for everyday life. It integrates fluency with numbers, proportional reasoning, data interpretation, algebraic reasoning, modeling, and communicating quantitative information. 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 placing at this level and needing MAT 114  should take MAT 087  or MAT 088  instead of this course. Prerequisite(s): Arithmetic skills.
