DEVM F051 Math Skills Review

1 Credits
Offered As Demand Warrants

Develops and reviews basic mathematical terminology, theory and operations as outlined by the Alaska State Mathematics Standards. Mathematics topics focus on reviewing the six basic "strands" of mathematical content: numeration, measurement, estimation and computation, function and relationship, geometry, and statistics and probability. Approaches to problem solving will emphasize the process of mathematical thinking, communication and reasoning. It is an appropriate course for those preparing for the High School Qualifying Exam in Alaska or those needing a review of basic math skills in preparation for a math placement test at UAF. May be repeated for a total of three credits. (1+0)
