Mathematics for College Readiness
Mathematics for College Readiness provides a fourth-year math curriculum focused on developing the mastery of skills identified as critical to postsecondary readiness in math. This full-year course is aligned with Florida's Postsecondary Readiness Competencies in mathematics and targets students who are required to complete additional instruction based on their performance on the Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT).
Course topics include solving equations with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division; fractions and decimals; inequalities; functions and sequences; systems of equations; polynomials; factoring quadratic equations; rational expressions; and data analysis.
Throughout the course, students are supplied with scaffolded note-taking guides, called Study Sheets, as well as post-study Checkup activities that provide them the opportunity to hone their computational skills by working through a low-stakes, 10-question problem set before moving on to formal assessment. Formative assessments help students to understand areas of weakness and improve performance, while summative assessments chart progress and skill development.
The course is built to the Florida Postsecondary Readiness Competencies.
