Description

This is a final high school math course for those preparing for a Liberal Arts or Humanities degree in college. It is developed based on review of the content from the math course required for Liberal Arts majors in ten top colleges, and so it is representative of the course many Liberal Arts or Humanities majors will take in their first year of college. This class teaches students how we use mathematics in our daily lives and why mathematics is important. Real-life and up-to-date examples motivate the topics throughout, and a wide range of exercises help students to develop their problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Students will cover essential concepts in algebra, geometry, logic, statistics, probability, set theory, number theory, discrete math, and consumer math. The goal of this survey course is to develop competency in analytical reasoning, problem solving, and multi-step decision making, with an emphasis on mathematical reasoning and the solving of real-life problems involving mathematics.

“As someone who has a love/hate relationship with math, I loved this course. Every chapter is on a different mathematical topic and is just challenging enough to keep things interesting. The teacher knows her math really well and is able to teach it in a way that is easy to understand. I liked her interactive classes and loved that she always took the time to answer questions, and made sure everyone understood the concepts.”

“This class has been amazing. College Math – Quantitative Reasoning sounds intimidating; however, the way this class is structured caters to nearly everyone’s math strengths. The ability to do many different kinds of math during the year kept me engaged in that it wasn’t long and grueling. This would be a great class for someone who enjoys math or is skilled in it, and wants to strengthen their knowledge for upcoming ACTs or SATs.”
