MAP 117: Applied Math for Workforce Programs I

Class Program
Credits 1 5 Lecture Hours 11 55
This course includes the study of basic arithmetic and algebraic concepts and operations including operations with integers, fractions, decimals and percents, order of operations, measurement, the metric system, algebraic expressions, formulas and simple linear equations. Students will complete exercises and problems providing practice in workforce program-specific applications. Credit cannot be earned in both MAP 117 and MATH 094.


Placement into MAP 117/MATH 094.
Course Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the course, students should be able to demonstrate the following knowledge or skills:

  1. Uses properties of prime and composite numbers to find least common multiples and reduce fractions to lowest terms.
  2. Applies appropriate methods add, subtract, multiply, divide, and find powers of integers, fractions, and decimals.
  3. Uses order of operations to simplify arithmetic and algebraic expressions.
  4. Solves application problems using ratios and proportion.
  5. Solves application problems using percents.
  6. Uses conversion factors when converting units of measure.
  7. Uses formulas to compute length, area, and volume of geometric shapes.
  8. Computes mean, median and mode of a data set.
  9. Solves basic linear equations.

Department Guidelines
This course has been designed as an application-based Introduction to Algebra (MATH 094) course. By completing this course, students will have met the computation general education requirement for a workforce program certificate/degree OR students will continue to MATH098 depending on program or planned transfer major requirements. Students may not earn credit for both MAP 117 and MATH 094.
