Math 016
This arithmetic course covers operations on natural numbers, integers, rational numbers (fractions), decimals and percents. Multi-step problems utilizing the correct order of arithmetic operations will be stressed. Correct mathematical format will be stressed. A Departmental Exam is required with no calculators allowed. Credit will not apply toward graduation.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Add, subtract, multiply, divide and exponentiate integers and rational numbers written as decimals or fractions
- Perform combinations of operations on integers and rational numbers
- Distinguish equivalent forms of numbers and numerical expressions from different ones
- Write integers and rational numbers in canonical forms
- Solve percent problems
