This course will provide students with ways to approach the quantitative information that they are certain to encounter in later coursework at Eastern Michigan University throughout their careers, and in daily life. The emphasis is on learning methods for comprehending, analyzing, and using quantitative information and on techniques for using data to inform decisions about real-world events and problems.
In addition, MATH 110E is specifically designed to meet the needs of students that are looking toward becoming elementary school teachers. While the content of this class mirrors that of MATH 110 , the examples, applications, and projects are designed to help you make connections to the K-5 classroom and help you to begin to think about how you will teach young children to make sense of some beginning mathematical concepts.
