College Preparatory Mathematics (Period 1)
This course addresses a variety of mathematical topics needed to prepare students success in college-level mathematics. In this course students will connect and use multiple strands of mathematics in situations and problems, as well as in the study of other disciplines. In addition, the course supports students in developing skills and strategies needed to succeed in college. Mathematics topics include: numeracy with an emphasis on estimation and fluency with large numbers; manipulating and evaluating expressions and formulas, to include perimeter, area, and volume; rates, ratios, and proportions; percentages; solving equations; linear equations and inequalities; linear systems; exponential models; data interpretations including graphs and tables; verbal, algebraic, and graphical interpretations of functions. Mathematical process standards are also included in this framework; these process standards describe ways in which students are expected to engage in the content. Successful completion of this course, as defined by the memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the partnering institution(s), grants the student an exemption to TSI requirements for mathematics at the partnering institution(s).
