Mathematical Literacy for College Students I&II is a two course sequence integrating numeracy, proportional reasoning, algebraic reasoning, and functions.  Students will learn to evaluate, construct and communicate arguments using quantitative methods and formal reasoning.  This ability is consistent with the following Mathematical Practice (MP) standards from the Common Core:

  1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
  2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
  3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
  4. Model with mathematics.
  5. Use appropriate tools strategically.
  6. Attend to precision.
  7. Look for and make use of structure.
  8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

We want you to understand how math arises in everyday situations, and to help you understand why math is relevant to your life!
