NCBM 02XX - NON-COURSE BASED INTERVENTION FOR MATHEMATICS

The NCBO 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, MATH 1342, MATH 1314, or MATH 1324. 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 MATH 1332, MATH 1342, MATH 1314, or MATH 1324

The two hour support will be paired with a specific course, indicated by the last two digits (e.g., MATH 1314 + NCBM 0214).

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.
