B CUSP 127
Explores applications of formulae, computational skills, and interpreting certain quantities. Reviews study techniques to enhance course comprehension, and the pros and cons of the use of calculators in a math class. Credit/no-credit only. Co-requisite: either B CUSP 122 or B CUSP 123. Offered: AWSp.
This course is supplemental to BCUSP 123 and prepares students for success in college-level math classes. This course focuses on strengthening computational skills and exploring learning strategies for use in mathematics and other technical disciplines.
Student learning goals
Manipulate and solve algebraic problems.
Present a solution to a mathematical problem in a logical and systematic way.
Apply mathematical ideas to new problems.
Read technical material, identify key points, and articulate questions to deepen understanding.
General method of instruction
Class time will be spent working independently and in groups to improve computational skills and in interactive workshops.
Students must be registered in BCUSP 123 to take this support class.
Class assignments and grading
There will be online assignments and individual and group work. Grades will be based on studentís performance on this work.
