Course Learning Objectives
This course is a review of basic mathematics skills. The learning objectives of this course include the ability to successfully complete the following with 70% accuracy:
- Operations on the Real Number line, including absolute value
- Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of Real Numbers
- Problems involving Natural Number factors
- Operations involving exponents and square roots
- Simplification of mathematical expressions and solutions to linear equations
- Introductory geometric problems
- Introductory statistical problems
- Elementary probability questions
The course is designed to gauge the learner's mastery of mathematics. The student may simply elect to test their mathematical skills by taking the pre-test. For the learner who continues in the course, there are eight modules, with each of them providing demonstrations and self-assessment activities. The course is concluded with a multiple-choice final exam. Successful completion of the pre-test or the final exam will result in a certificate of completion for the student.
The certificate will be accepted in the School of Professional And Career Education (PACE) at Barry University as satisfactory completion of the PACE Mathematics Skills Placement Assessment. Students should present a copy of their certificate of completion to their PACE advisor as soon as it is issued or at the time of application.
The developer and instructor for this course is Dr. Carol Warner.
Successful completion of this course ensures a passing score on the PACE Mathematics Skills Assessment.
