### MATH/STAT Courses

This is also a course in the fundamental operations of real numbers, solving linear equations in one variable, exponents, polynomials, graphing linear equations in two variables, and solving linear systems in two variables. The topics will be delivered in a self-paced format using technology, allowing students to begin at the appropriate level based on course placement and allowing them to move through as many topics as they can within the time limits of the semester. This course provides a basic foundation for future mathematics needed in many fields. A comprehensive, proctored, departmental final exam will be given. Please note that this course does NOT satisfy the math component of a degree or certificate program at CSN.
