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 122 and prepares students for success in college-level Algebra classes. This course focuses on strengthening computational skills and exploring learning strategies for use in mathematics and other technical disciplines.
Student learning goals
Solve algebraic problems.
Present a solution to a mathematical problem in a logical and systematic way.
Apply mathematical ideas to new problems.
Identify and implement effective techniques for learning mathematics and other technical disciplines.
Read technical materials, identify key points, and articulate questions to deepen understanding.
Develop mathematical thinking skills.
General method of instruction
Class time will be spent working independently to improve computational skills, in groups on a project, and in interactive workshops.
Students must be registered in BCUSP 122 to take this support class.
Class assignments and grading
We will make use of online assignments, interactive learning and group projects.
