Course Description

Course Name: Liberal Arts Math

Subject: Mathematics

Course Number: 1208300

Credit Earned: 1.0 credit

Prerequisites: Algebra 1 and Geometry

Course description: The setting for this course is an amusement park with animals, rides, and games. Your job will be to apply what you learn to dozens of real-world scenarios. Equations, geometric relationships, and statistical probabilities can sometimes be dull, but not in this class! Your park guide (teacher) will take you on a grand tour of problems and puzzles that show how things work and how mathematics provides valuable tools for everyday living. Come reinforce your existing algebra and geometry skills to learn solid skills with the algebraic and geometric concepts you'll need for further study of mathematics. We have an admission ticket with your name on it and we promise an exciting ride with no waiting!
