This course will emphasize problem solving and consumer application problems. Students will cover basic operations on whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. The course will stress the importance of computational accuracy (without the use of calculators), organization, goal setting, and logical thinking. Advanced topics like percents, ratios, measurements, perimeters, areas, volumes, probabilities, statistics, and equation problem solving will also be studied. The ultimate outcome of this course is to impart the math skills necessary for the student to excel in pre-algebra or algebra.
