Math I: General Math

DESCRIPTION:
This course emphasizes the study of general math. The course is presented in two semesters.

Semester 1 introduces the number types and basic math operations, to include addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Identifies the order of operations, explains the commutative, associative, and distributive properties as well as factoring and divisibility rules, and their application to word problems. It guides students through the use of fractions, decimals, and percents and their relationships to each other.

Semester 2 illustrates the use of exponents, roots, scientific notation, and the use of formulas. It covers lines and angles, area and perimeter of quadrilaterals, circumference, radius, and diameter of circles, and properties of obtuse, acute, and right triangles. This course also discusses patterns, probability, central tendency, graphs and charts, and tables and schedules.
