This course is intended to build or reinforce a foundation in fundamental mathematics concepts and skills. It includes the concepts of geometry, measurement, probability, and statistics with an emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking.

Upon completion, students will be able to:

  • Apply fundamental terms of geometry such as points, lines, and planes to describe two and three dimensional figures.
  • Make and test conjectures about figures and geometric relationships.
  • Use a variety of methods to identify and justify congruency and similarity of geometric objects.
  • Perform geometric transformations.
  • Demonstrate fundamental probability techniques and apply those techniques to solve problems.
  • Explain the use of data collection and statistics as tools to reach reasonable conclusions.
  • Recognize, examine, and utilize the basic principles of describing and presenting data.
  • Perform measurement processes and explain the concept of a unit of measurement.
  • Develop and use formulas for the perimeter, area, and volume for a variety of figures.
