NCBM 0100 or 01XX - NON-COURSE BASED OPTION FOR MATHEMATICS

The NCBM supports students in developing skills, strategies, and reasoning needed to succeed in mathematics, including communication and appropriate use of technology. Topics include the study of numeracy and the real number system; algebraic concepts, notation, and reasoning; quantitative relationships; mathematical models; and problem solving.

This course is a developmental education intervention and supports topics in MATH 1332 or MATH 1342. Course may include basic study skills such as note-taking, time management, learning styles, math anxiety, and test-taking strategies.

Must be taken concurrently with a MATH 1332 or MATH 1342 course.

NCBM 0100 indicates an intervention paired with any section of MATH1332 or 1342. An NCBM course specifically tied to a MATH 1332 or 1342 course will be indicated by the last two digits (e.g., MATH 1332 + NCBM 0132).

This course does not count toward graduation at NCTC.

Upon completion, students will be able to:

  • Use appropriate symbolic notation and vocabulary to communicate, interpret, and explain mathematical concepts.
  • Define, represent, and perform operations on real numbers, applying numeric reasoning to investigate and describe quantitative relationships and solve real world problems in a variety of contexts.
  • Use algebraic reasoning to solve problems that require ratios, rates, percentages, and proportions in a variety of contexts using multiple representations.
  • Apply algebraic reasoning to manipulate expressions and equations to solve real world problems.
  • Use graphs, tables, and technology to analyze, interpret, and compare data sets.
  • Construct and use mathematical models in verbal, algebraic, graphical, and tabular form to solve problems from a variety of contexts and to make predictions and decisions.
