PROPOSED COURSE NUMBER and/or TITLE: Abbreviated Course Title, if necessary: MATH 102 MATHEMATICS FOR MANAGEMENT 1 credit Updated 18 April 2008 PROPOSED COURSE DESCRIPTION: Intensive review of fractions, decimals, percents, order of operations, solving equations, evaluating formulas, ratios and proportions and linear functions. Open only to Management majors and minors who do not pass the mathematics assessment exam for management. Graded Pass/No Pass. Fall, Spring. LEARNING OUTCOMES: Students will be able to: 1) Add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions and decimals. 2) compare the magnitude of two or more fractions or decimals. 3) Express quantities as fractions, decimals, or percents. 4) Use the order of operations to simplify numerical expressions. 5) Solve linear equations. 6) Evaluate formulas. 7) Solve problems involving ratios and proportions. 8) Use linear functions in application problems. RATIONALE: MATH 102 serves to prepare those Management majors and minors who do not pass the “mathematics assessment exam for management” for MGT 202, Quantitative Decision Making. Since MATH 102 was created several years ago, it has been graded Pass/No Pass. This was the intention all along as the course serves only the purpose of certifying that a student is mathematically ready to enroll in MGT 202. Somehow, the grading notation “Graded Pass/No Pass” never found its way into the College Catalog. The proposed curriculum change will fix this oversight. RESOURCES: The grading change to “Pass/No Pass” will have no effect on staffing, facilities, budget, space, or library resources. ADVISORY OPINIONS: Management Department: The Department of Management wholeheartedly endorses this proposal. The intent has always been to have this course be a Pass/No Pass course.
