MATH 100 Survey of College Mathematics
- Plan to study outside of class at least 6 hours each week, or more if it has been a while since you have taken a math class.
- Study actively by doing practice problems, making note cards, and making study guides.
- Attend professor's student hours (office hours) and math support centers regularly.
- Form study groups with other students in class and try to explain problems as you do them.
Survey of College Math is an introductory class developed to give liberal studies students exposure to various areas of math and to gain an appreciation for the subject by connecting math to the world around them. This class introduces students to basic mathematical concepts and methods that will assist them in using mathematics in both their personal and professional lives. Upon completion of this course, students will enhance their critical thinking skills, develop skills to help them become more logical thinkers, learn techniques to analyze and interpret real-world data, and better understand the validity of an argument.
- Operations with integers and fractions
- Fraction, decimal, and percentage conversions
- Basic algebra, including evaluating and simplifying expressions
- Solving linear equations and writing equations of lines
- Join the MATH 100 Math Jumpstart Canvas page, created by Mt. SAC math faculty, with topic-based modules that include under-5-minute refresher videos and practice problems to review at your own pace.
- Enroll in a free faculty-led noncredit math prep class through AIME (Academic Instruction for Math and English) in Mt. SAC’s School of Continuing Education.
