Course Outline
This course is designed to help students improve their basic numeracy skills in order to achieve a wide range of career, educational, and personal goals. Content will be delivered in a lecture format and group settings.

Student Learning Outcomes
Read, write, and interpret very simple types of mathematical information such as
Numbers and number sense: whole numbers (three digit numbers), common monetary values, and benchmark fractions (1/2, 1/4) and percents (50%).
Patterns/Functions/Relationships: very simple patterns, commonly-used denominations/groupings (5s, 10s, 25s), and very simple proportions (2:1, 1:2).
Space/Shape/Measurement: high frequency standard units of measurement (pounds, feet, quarts, gallons), geometric shapes, and concepts of length and width.
Data/Statistics: very simple ways to interpret and represent data (checksheets, picture graphs, simple bar graphs, line plots) emphasizing frequency of occurrence.

Begin to evaluate reasonableness of solutions. Add and subtract whole numbers through three digits, and multiply and divide three digit numbers by one digit numbers.

Recall and use mathematical procedures such as basic estimating, counting, sorting, ordering, grouping, adding on (using counting or a calculator), and measuring length and weight using tools calibrated with whole numbers (rulers, manipulatives). Evaluate the degree of precision needed for the solution.

Extract discrete information from simple and concrete data and graphs, and measure with appropriate tools, describe patterns, and/or use computational procedures effectively to solve a problem and to verify that the solution is reasonable.

Communicate the solution to the problem orally, in role-plays, with pictures, or by entries on a simple chart.

Use computer programs and/or internet to practice math.

Use a Highline username and password to log on to campus computers.

Identify reasons for being in school and some specific personal goals.
