This course is designed to provide a review of basic mathematics skills for students who need to strengthen their background in mathematics before they take higher-level courses. It provides a foundation for success in subsequent college-level mathematics. This is a lecture course which includes the following topics: order of operations, properties of numbers, fractions and decimals, ratio and proportion, percents, graphs and charts, applications, and exponents. Basic concepts in geometry (length, area, and volume) will be introduced if time permits. (Please note: minimum passing grade is a “C”).
