#### Course Description

Applying mathematical tools and analysis to a practical context, particularly focusing on using proportions and ratios. Basic statistical tools are developed and employed, including graphs, descriptive statistics, the normal curve, the basics of inferential reasoning, and investigating correlation. Financial applications are particularly emphasized, as is the use of spreadsheets.

For information regarding the prerequisites for this course, please refer to the Academic Course Catalog.

#### Rationale

MATH 114 is designed to help the student use mathematics to accurately apply numerical information. The student will learn critical thinking skills, particularly with sophisticated applications of rudimentary mathematical ideas to numerical contexts of everyday life. This is not just in the financial realm, but also in other areas where quantitative data is prevalent (from medical studies to energy usage to academic achievement).

#### Measurable Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

MLO 1:  Utilize graphical displays to make accurate conclusions.

MLO 2:  Formulate solutions to practical applications using ratios and proportions.

MLO 3:  Apply fundamental mathematical concepts and formulas to financial questions regarding investments, comparative costs, and related applications.

MLO 4:  Compute basic statistical quantities for correct analysis of data sets.

MLO 5:  Construct spreadsheets that employ formulas to derive numerical results.

MLO 6:  Analyze real-world situations involving mathematical data and make decisions accordingly.

General Education Foundational Skill Learning Outcomes (FSLO): Technological Solutions and Quantitative Reasoning (TSQR)

TSQR 1: Analyze data and inform action through a structured method.

TSQR 2: Predict the output based on input in practical scenarios using technological solutions and/or quantitative reasoning.

TSQR 3: Apply the skills needed for successful financial stewardship in various contexts.

TSQR 4: Relate technology and quantitative reasoning to participation in God’s redemptive work.

#### Course Assignment

Course Requirements Checklist

After reading the Course Syllabus and Student Expectations, the student will complete the related checklist found in the Course Overview.

Discussions (2)

Discussions are collaborative learning experiences. Therefore, the student is required to provide a thread in response to the provided prompt for each discussion. Each thread must meet the word count stated in the discussion prompt and demonstrate course-related knowledge. In addition to the thread, the student is required to reply to 2 other classmate’s threads. Each reply must be at least 50 words.  (MLOs: MLO 3, 5, 6; FSLOs: TSQR 1, 3, 4).

Homework (HW) Assignments (8)

The student will complete a homework assignment in ALEKS for each module. Assignments will typically consist of several multiple-choice questions and questions that require numerical answers. Typically, assignments will cover 2–4 sections from the textbook, but this will vary depending on the length and difficulty of each section included in the assignment. (MLOs: MLO 1, 2, 3, 4, 6; FSLOs: TSQR 1, 2, 3).

Homework (HW): Exam Review Assignments (4)

Exam Review Assignments are a condensed combination of the two previous homework assignments whose content is included in the exam.  Reviews cover no new material but provide another opportunity to recall topics and work through the types of problems that will be included in the exams.  (MLOs: MLO 1, 2, 3, 4, 6; FSLOs: TSQR 1, 2, 3).

Project Assignments (2)

These projects will apply course concepts to real-life situations and further explore topics introduced in the text. Projects will also incorporate spreadsheet tasks to further develop the student’s ability to utilize this tool to investigate mathematical questions.  (MLOs: MLO 4, 5, 6; FSLOs: TSQR 1, 2).

Exam Assignments (4)

Each exam will cover the reading material for two modules: weeks: the material assigned during the exam module and the material from the previous module. Exams are not cumulative. Each exam will be open-book/open-notes, contain 20–30 questions, and have a 2-hour and 45-minute time limit. These exams will be completed in ALEKS which is associated with the course textbook. (MLOs: MLO 1, 2, 3, 4, 6; FSLOs: TSQR 1, 2, 3).
