Math Lab III supports and reinforces upper level mathematics courses such as Algebra 2, Discrete Mathematics, or Advanced Functions. Students will have additional opportunities to build on their problem solving experiences to further develop their reasoning skills, and develop methods of justifications. A variety of applications and some general problem-solving techniques will be used. Learning will be experienced through concrete and modeling activities, whenever possible, with less emphasis on computational or symbolic manipulation. Instructional activities will include the use of graphing calculators, computer software, and other appropriate manipulatives to promote student reasoning and discovery of mathematic concepts.
Course Note: This course satisfies the Elective (1 of 5 credits) graduation requirement.
