Mathematics for College Success
Mathematics for College Success provides a math curriculum focused on developing the mastery of skills identified as critical to postsecondary readiness in math. This single-semester elective 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 a review of algebra concepts; functions and sequences; systems of equations; polynomials; factoring quadratic expressions; 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 Florida Postsecondary Readiness Competencies.
