Description

How do mathematicians think, write, and speak? Find out in this course, where you will experience new ways of solving problems through interactive and engaging activities. With a focus on hands-on learning and real-world application, you will be exposed to foundational concepts needed for higher-level math study. Major topics include performing operations with integers and positive rational numbers, solving problems involving ratios and rates, and using expressions and equations. You will also plot points on the coordinate plane, find the area and volume of geometric figures, and extend your understanding of statistics.
