Course Description:

Math fundamentals: adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing whole numbers and fractions. Emphasis on math learning strategies such as organization and managing math anxiety.

Course Outline:

- Meta-math learning strategies (Resource use, math anxiety management, test-taking strategies, textbook use, note taking)
- Place-value, rounding, estimation
- Whole numbers: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division
- Exponents
- Averages
- Order of operations of whole numbers for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
- Divisibility, multiples
- The fundamentals of the factoring process: prime numbers (Least Common Multiple, Greatest Common Factor)
- Fractions: multiplication, division, simplification
- Like fractions: addition, subtraction
- Final exam

Lab Outline:


Course Measurable Objectives:

1. Add, subtract, multiply and divide whole numbers and basic fractions.
2. Use multiplication facts in the solution of various problems.
3. Identify and use appropriate math terms and vocabulary.
4. Select and apply strategies for application problems.
5. Identify and utilize math learning strategies related to resource use, math anxiety management, test-taking strategies, textbook use, and note taking.
6. Develop a plan for managing math anxiety.

Course Methods of Evaluation:

Category 1. Substantial written assignments for this course include:

Half-page written reflection papers pertaining to study techniques and/or learning strategies.

If the course is degree applicable, substantial written assignments in this course are inappropriate because:

Not degree applicable

Category 2. Computational or non-computational problem solving demonstrations:

Demonstrations of problem-solving using manipulatives and visual representations
Problem-based learning activities for real-world applications
Presentations and projects

Category 3. Skills Demonstrations:


Category 4. Objective Examinations:

Quizzes and exams on basic computation facts

Sample Assignments:

Sample Assignments for LERN 48:
1. Create and present a poster or a slide presentation which describes one prime factorization process.
2. Using rounded dollar amounts and the data provided (dinner menu, shopping list, information from Costco.com), estimate the cost of a holiday party for groups of 10, 20, 35 and 90 people respectively.
3. Utilize at least three math anxiety management strategies. Create a one-page written critique and identify the effectiveness of each strategy.
