MAT 1500 Problem Solving JCC College Connections
Hello! I am excited that you were interested in taking a college level mathematics course! This will be a full year math class run through the JCC College Connections program. At the end of this year, you have the opportunity to earn 3 college credits through JCC. Since JCC is a SUNY school, these credits should be transferrable to a variety of other college programs.
What you can expect:
Since this course is college level, you can expect the rigor to be a little higher than a normal high school class. You will be expected to take notes from what I am presenting, study those notes and utilize them to help with homework assignments. What I am hoping to do with this course is make it very project based so we can explore mathematics through real world sceniors that are applicable to you. Problem Solving is neat in that there are many different areas in which we can problem solve, and I view it as a way to expand your thinking to answer questions. We have to problem solve in so many areas of our life, not just mathematically. We will be using a textbook that is provided online and free of charge.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me via email or my school extension.
