Hours: 108 lecture
Practical Mathematics is a one semester course for non-math, non-science majors covering the topics of numeracy, proportional reasoning, algebraic reasoning, trigonometric reasoning, data analysis and critical thinking through real world applications. Students develop the skills needed to apply mathematical and technological skills and procedures to analyze and interpret mathematical data. Algebraic, geometric and trigonometric topics covered include: real numbers and their properties; proportions; measurement of lengths, areas and volumes; first degree equations and inequalities; functional analysis; graphs of linear, quadratic, and exponential equations; systems of equations in two variables; quadratic, exponential, and logarithmic equations; and basic right triangle trigonometry. Not intended for students on the calculus track. (not transferable)
