    Liberal Arts Math: A Florida Course

    Description:

    Liberal Arts Mathematics: A Florida Course is intended to build upon previous mathematics courses. It will bring about a deeper understanding of various mathematical relationships to benefit students through the comprehension of mathematical literacy in the real world, show the connection among algebra, geometry and statisitics, and simultaneously help them build a strong foundation for future study in mathematics. This course will meet the state requirements which include the benchmarks for the Common Core Standards (CCS) for Liberal Arts Math (LAM).

    Goals:

    Students will:

    • develop mathematical intuition and a relevant base of mathematical knowledge
    • gain experiences that connect classroom learning with real-world applications
    • develop a positive attitude about learning and using mathematics
    • build techniques of reasoning for effective problem solving
    • learn to apply, display, and communicate knowledge

    Materials:

    pencils

    highlighter

    graph paper

    lined notebook paper

    four-function calculator, NOT your phone

    Resources:
