MATH 216 - Number and Operations 2
This course focuses on the conceptual and procedural understanding of number and operations including patterns, proportional reasoning, percentages, integer operations and models, number theory, and irrational numbers. Concepts are taught from a problem solving perspective.
Prerequisites: either MATH 100C with a grade of C or higher or score of 66 or higher on the Compass Algebra test.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Learner Outcomes Approval Date:
- Represent proportional relationships using tables, graphs, equations, diagrams, mathematical models, and verbal descriptions.
- Demonstrate conceptual understanding in analyzing and solving real world problems that require the use of ratios, the unit rate, rates, proportions and scaling and be able to verbally and through the use of models connect proportional relationships to geometry, measurement, statistics, probability and function.
- Use and explain arithmetic operations and their properties through the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of integers and other real numbers including irrational numbers. They will be able to explain and solve problems involving standard and alternative algorithms.
- Analyze, extend and generalize patterns both geometrically and algebraically. They will write both in explicit and recursive definitions for generating a sequence.
- Use appropriate technology to investigate and represent concepts, methods and application of mathematical concepts.
- Use principles of mathematical thinking and problem solving to explore, solve, generalize and prove mathematical problems.
