Course Description: This course enables the students to display, describe, transform and interpret numerical information represented as data, graphs or equations. Using technology, students will visualize functions, explore relations between equations and their graphs, simulate experiments, generate and analyze data. This course uses a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) approach by incorporating an engineering component that emphasizes the process and design of solutions using computers with specialized and professional applications, graphing calculators, mobile devices, and the Internet.

Instructional Methods/Assessments: Instructional methods include video lectures, text notes, and discussions, cooperative and individual investigation. Assessments include daily work, tests, quizzes and proctored midterm and semester final exam.

Minnesota State Standards: Portions of I. Mathematical Reasoning, II Number Sense, Computation, Operations, III. Patterns, Functions, Algebra, IV Data Analysis, Statistics, Probability, V. Spatial Sense, Geometry and Measurement.

Recommended Background for Success: Students should have the ability to solve multi-step equations and inequalities, graph linear equations and inequalities, set up and solve word problems, and multiply and factor polynomials. Students should have a graphing calculator.
