Major Course Competencies

  • Solve Equations Algebraically: Solve a variety of equation types so that you are prepared for mathematics you might encounter in other courses and careers.

  • Graphs and Relationships: Interpret the key features of graphs and relate graphs to the mathematics of their equations to wisely use math in other contexts.

  • Real-World Applications: Translate textual information into mathematics and vice versa in applications to real-world problems to enhance problem solving skills.

  • Create Models from Data: Create an appropriate mathematical model for a set of data to make interpolations and extrapolations.

  • Technology and Reasonability: Apply technology to enhance mathematical interpretation and determine reasonability of solutions since real-world problems rarely involve equations with integers.

  • Fluency in Terminology and Notation: Demonstrate fluency with function notation and mathematical terminology in equations, graphs, tables, and words to prepare for success in other courses involving math.

  • Transformations of Graphs: Apply transformations to functions to modify the behaviors of their graphs.
