**Course Description**
MATH 81 is offered to prepare students for college level mathematics (BUS 100, MATH 100, MATH 100H, MATH 115). Topics covered include numeracy, data analysis, basic algebra, graphing, geometry, and problem solving. Students will be expected to use graphing calculators and computers in an interactive and collaborative learning environment. See detailed objectives.
See also MATH 24 and MATH 25 for algebra and graphing resources.
