    About This Course

    College Mathematics is a college-level mathematics course for non-mathematics majors and majors in fields not requiring knowledge of advanced mathematics. In this course, students will become familiar with currently taught mathematics vocabulary, symbols, and notation and will learn to solve both routine problems and non-routine problems that require the application of skills and concepts. The subject matter of this course includes sets and logic, number theory, geometry, algebra and functions, graphs, probability, statistics, and financial mathematics.

    Course Objectives

    After completing this course, you will be able to:

    • Solve and interpret algebraic equations, inequalities, and functions in numeric, graphic, and symbolic methods.
    • Recall and apply the probability and counting rules and definitions; Analyze data and statistics in the forms of graphs, charts, and summaries.
    • Calculate percentages, percent change, markups, discounts, taxes, profits, loss, and interest in relation to finances.
    • Compare and contrast properties of geometric shapes and lines, including perimeters, areas, circumference, and angles, as well as parallel and perpendicular lines; Find relationships within sets, subsets, Venn diagrams, and logic statements.
    • Interpret properties of numbers, including number systems, number theory, and measurement.
    • Apply mathematic knowledge to both routine (straightforward) and non-routine (real world) problems.
    • Analyze data and statistics in the forms of graphs, charts, and summaries.
    • Find relationships with sets, subsets, Venn diagrams, and logic statements.

    Kathleen Giansiracusa
    Kathleen Giansiracusa holds a BS in Mathematics Education and an MS in Systems Engineering from the University of Arizona. She is a member of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and American Mensa. Kathleen has been a mathematics instructor at Distance Learning Systems since October 2016. Previously, Kathleen worked as a systems and reliability engineer in the space and defense industries and as a mathematics and engineering instructor in high school, college, and industry settings. Two of Kathleen’s greatest passions are teaching and mathematics. Kathleen believes that effective teaching involves both a strong knowledge of the subject matter and an understanding of and connection with the students. Her background in education and engineering has given her experience in pure and applied mathematics in addition to opportunities to work with students in a variety of settings. Kathleen enjoys instructing all levels of mathematics and pursuing volunteer opportunities through her church.

    Barry Kaplan graduated from Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mathematics and earned a Master of Science Degree in Mathematics from Adelphi University in Garden City, New York. He taught math and science to middle school and high school students in Levittown, New York for 12 years before relocating to Florida. While living in Florida I worked in the private sector as an Actuarial Consultant and Senior Financial Analyst writing computer programs for large life insurance companies. Over ten years ago, he returned to the educational field and has held the position of General Education Coordinator, Educational Designer, Full-Time Faculty, and Adjunct Instructor for several local colleges and universities teaching College Mathematics and all levels of Algebra primarily to adult learners. Barry finds it very satisfying to be part of a team that supports learners in obtaining their goals. He takes exceptional pride in other’s accomplishments and success stories, knowing that his efforts have enhanced the lives of others
