COURSE NUMBER AND TITLE, CATALOG C ATALOG DESCRIPTION, CREDITS: MAT 1100 MATHEMATICAL MATHEMATICAL LITERACY LITERACY FOR COLLEGE COLLEGE STUDENTS STUDENTS (3 CREDITS)

This course reinforces elementary algebra and quantitative reasoning skills and introduces basic statistical concepts through data analysis in preparation for college-level statistics and liberal arts mathematics. Topics include, but are not limited to, r atios, proportions, scaling, dimensional analysis, modeling with equations and inequalities, tables, graphs, linear functions, and exponential functions. Written and verbal communication skills will be emphasized along with critical thinking. Students who complete this course will be prepared to enroll in STA 2023, MGF 1106 and/or MGF 1107. However, students who have completed this course are not eligible to enroll in MAC 1105 without meeting other prerequisites. A graphing calculator is required for this course. II.

REQUIREMENTS FOR THE STUDENTS: List specific course assessments such as class participation, tests, homework assignments, make-up procedures, etc.

VII.

ATTENDANCE POLICY: The professor’s specific policy concerning absence. (The College policy on attendance is in the Catalog, and defers to the professor.)

VIII.

GRADING POLICY: Include numerical ranges for letter grades; the following is a range commonly used by many faculty:

90 - 100 = 80 - 89 = 70 - 79 = 60 - 69 = Below 60 =

A B C D F

(Note: The “incomplete” grade *“I”+ should be given only when unusual unusual circumstances warrant. An “incomplete” is not a substitute for a “D,” “F,” or “W.” Refer to the policy on “incomplete grades.) IX.

REQUIRED COURSE MATERIALS: (In correct bibliographic format.)
