    MATH 1003 Fundamentals of Mathematics

    3 credits
    Fundamentals of Math is an integrated approach to investigating pre-algebra and beginning algebra concepts and procedures that makes explicit the connection between arithmetic and algebra concepts simultaneously. This approach emphasizes the parallelism between the way operations are performed with numbers and with comparable algebraic expressions in order to strengthen understanding of both and enhance transfer of understanding of the related concepts. The course will use an on-line supplement to support and strengthen both skill building and tutorial opportunities. This course does not replace the general education MATH 1053  requirement.


    Note: All students who are admitted conditionally and/or tose who score below the required minimum TOEFL score for admission to SWU must enroll in MATH 1003 and earn a minimum grade of C before enrolling in their core curriculum math course.
