Course Outline
This course is designed to help students improve their basic math 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).
Patterns/Functions/Relationships: very simple patterns, commonly-used denominations/groupings (2s, 5s, 10s); mathematical relationships — more, less, larger, smaller, left, right, heavier, longer.
Space/Shape/Measurement: high frequency standard units of measurement (pounds, feet, months, weeks, days, minutes, hours), and concepts of geometric shape, length and width.
Data/Statistics: very simple ways to interpret and represent data (check sheets, picture graphs,) emphasizing frequency of occurrence.

Recall and use a few simple mathematical procedures such as very basic estimating, counting, sorting, ordering, grouping, adding on (using counting or a calculator), orally counting by 2s, 5s and 10s, addition and subtraction and beginning multiplication. Evaluate the degree of precision needed for the solution.

Extract discrete information from simple and concrete data and graphs, describe patterns, and/or use basic 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.

Identify and use basic computer hardware, and use MyHCC login and password to log on to Highline computers.

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