This course is one part of a two-part module and must be taken concurrently with MA 019W Quantitative Reasoning Workshop. The course and its companion workshop review quantitative reasoning while presenting a survey of topics in college-level mathematics that develop critical thinking skills, flexibility of thought, appropriate problem-solving strategies, and the ability to express ideas in mathematical language. Strategies include modeling, using symmetry, algebra, logical reasoning, set theoretical analysis, detecting patterns, and making predictions. Emphasis is placed on developing skills in analysis, estimation, and verification. Prerequisite: complete university's directed self-placement process. Corequisite: MA 019W.
