MTHS 101 - Fundamental Ideas in Mathematics

This course will address many of the pervasive mathematical concepts from introductory mathematics courses. Topics will include calculations involving fractions, decimals, ratios, proportions and percents; interpretation of word problems, order of operations, interpretations of calculator output; properties of rational, irrational and real numbers, infinity and asymptotic behavior of functions, exponential and logarithmic relationships, geometry, conditional relationships, negations and quantifiers, number patterns and generalization. An intuitive approach will be used that will allow the student to explore and investigate these concepts and techniques. The emphasis in this course will be on developing individual ownership and a working relationship with these topics.
