College Ready Math
College Ready Mathematics course places a strong emphasis on fostering a deep comprehension of mathematical concepts, rather than mere rote memorization of facts. Students in this Math Preparedness program will explore the rationale underlying mathematical procedures, gaining insight into why specific formulas and problem-solving methods are applied. Through immersive exploration of real-world applications, this course cultivates essential critical thinking abilities that students will draw upon both in their collegiate pursuits and future careers.
The course curriculum is comprised of ten comprehensive units, each covering fundamental mathematical topics: Semester One: A culture of Learning, Algebraic Expressions, Equations, Measurement & Proportional Reasoning, Summarizing and Interpreting Statistical Data. Semester Two: Probability, Linear Functions, Linear Systems of Equations, Quadratic Functions, and Exponential Functions.
College Math Ready is not designed to prepare students for advanced mathematics in STEM majors but, rather, help students master math skills before transitioning from high school to postsecondary education and careers. In this course, students increase their problem-solving, critical thinking and communication skills. Note: Students may take either semester. Semesters do not have to be taken sequentially. Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra II.
