Prerequisites: (DMA 010 and DMA 020 and DMA 030)
Corequisites: None
Effective Term: Fall 2014
This course provides an activity-based approach that develops measurement skills and mathematical literacy using technology to solve problems for non-math intensive programs. Topics include unit conversions and estimation within a variety of measurement systems; ratio and proportion; basic geometric concepts; financial literacy; and statistics including measures of central tendency, dispersion, and charting of data. Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate the use of mathematics and technology to solve practical problems, and to analyze and communicate results.
·Student Learning Outcomes
·1. Demonstrate estimation skills and justify results.
·2. Use dimensional analysis to convert units of measurement.
·3. Employ fractions, percentages and proportions to solve contextual problems.
·4. Compute geometric measurements of perimeter, area, volume and angles.
·5. Use technology to analyze and interpret elements of personal finance.
·6. Compare and contrast measures of center and measures of dispersion.
·7. Interpret tables, charts, and graphs and communicate results.
