Full course description

The College Readiness Math MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) is a self-paced online program designed to enhance your mathematics skills in the areas of algebra and geometry. This MOOC is designed to help develop the skills needed to be successful in college mathematics. 

The Math MOOC is comprised of ten math modules that have been aligned to specific learning objectives topically found in a developmental mathematics course. These learning objectives include:
Course Objectives: Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
Module 1: Fractions, Ratios, and Percents
·       Perform operations with real numbers 
·       Use rates, ratios, and percents to solve real-world and mathematical problems
Module 2: Geometry and Measurement
·       Use measurement formulas to model and solve geometric problems
·       Solve problems involving special triangles including the relationship between sides and angles of these special triangles
·       Apply the Pythagorean’s Theorem to solve real-world and mathematical problems related to right triangles
·       Solve problems involving geometric figures using the distance and midpoint formulas
Module 3:  Solving Linear Equations, Inequalities, and Absolute Value
