Applied Mathematics

Instructor: Jennifer Hurst

Applied Mathematics provides the practical mathematics skills needed in a wide variety of trades, technical, and other occupational areas including welding, auto technology, auto body, early childhood, graphic design, computer technology and programming, sports medicine, law enforcement, engineering, culinary arts, emergency medical technician, certified nursing assistant, health occupations and fire science. This class is especially intended for students who find traditional math class and methods of math instruction challenging. The course assists students by providing a direct, practical approach that emphasizes careful, complete explanations and actual on-the-job applications. Some of those applications include: learning to use a calculator, estimating, measuring, using graphs, charts, tables and working with data, lines and angles, review and survey of arithmetical operations, common fractions, fundamentals of algebra and geometry. This course features a lab component where students will apply these skills, while identifying and evaluating personal goals, priorities, aptitudes, and interests with the goal of making informed decisions about their careers.  (02061A000)
