MAT 091 - Mathematical Literacy I
Mathematical concepts are investigated through group problems and class discussions based on real-life contexts of citizenship, personal finances, and medical literacy. It integrates fluency with numbers, proportional reasoning, data interpretation, algebraic reasoning, modeling, and communicating quantitative information. This course is intended for students that do not plan to pursue a STEM degree.
Prerequisites: MAT 093 (2-credits) Integrated Arithmetic and Basic Algebra or equivalent
