Course Description

Math Models with Applications A is the first half of a two semester course that focuses on types of graphs, probability, and statistics. Topics covered include construction and interpretation of graphs, measures of central tendency, measures of variation, and data collection. Basics of probability and probability models are also covered. Students will participate in hands-on projects that employ the skills they learn in real world settings.

Course Organization

Modules. The Modules are practice assignments. Each Module is a non-graded exercise that allows you to build your knowledge and identify your strengths and weaknesses.
Graded Assignments. Graded Assignments are the tasks you will submit to your instructor for a grade. Each assignment contains specific information about how your work will be assessed and how credit will be given for your responses. The average of your assignments will count for 75 percent of your course grade.

Final Examination

The final examination is comprehensive; it covers the material from all of the units. To pass the course, you must receive a grade of 70 percent or better. You can apply to take the Final Exam after 100 percent of your graded assignments have been submitted, and at least 70 percent have been graded and returned to you.
