Starts October 19, 2015
Here’s your chance to review the fundamental processes of mathematics with emphasis on problem-solving techniques.
During this five-week course, students can select individual math concepts or proceed through each of the self-paced learning modules. Topics include a review of arithmetic, introductory algebra, rudiments of analytic geometry, elementary trigonometry, introductory statistics, and basic finance. Module warm-up questions will help students identify learning deficits, which can then be addressed through the modules. This course also contextualizes math for trades, including electro-mechanical, engineering graphics, machining, and welding. Students who choose to master every short module quiz will be awarded a certificate of completion.
Topics covered include:
- Module One: Numbers, Conversions and Measurements
- Module Two: Algebra Essentials
- Module Three: Geometry
- Module Four: Trigonometry, Vectors and Logarithms
- Module Five: Concepts in Finance, Statistics and Graphing
