General College math
General College Mathematics I is designed, primarily, for non-sceicne majors. It provides mathematical skills, knowledge, and understanding neccesssary to function in a technological society. Topics include: problem solving and critical thinking; sets and logic concepts; numeration and mathematical systems; linear equations and inequalitieies; and graphing. This is a 3 credit hour lecture course.
A variety of teaching strategies are used such as: lecture-test, cooperative learning (group/team work), student participation and/or presentation in class, homework, computer-assistend learning activities, and work in the Mathpower Lab.
- Apply different problem solving strategies and tools.
- Define differentiate and compare sets.
- Perform basic set operations, including the union of sets, the intersection of sets, finding a set complement, Cartesian products.
- Use set theory and oerations on sets to model data.
- Determine equivalence of statements, identify and classify forms of conditional statements by definitions through the use of truth tables and De Morgan's Laws
- Explore different systems of numerations and perform arithmetic computations in other systems of numeration.
- Explore and classify different mathematical sytstems, axiomatic systems, and in particular the real number sstems.
- Identify and classify subsets of the real numbers.
The following will be assessed:
