The goals of this course are to give students a greater knowledge and understanding of mathematics and to help students develop new skills and concepts and enhance their problem-solving ability, all of which are necessary for the study of a science and engineering oriented calculus. MAT 196 is also designed to help students further develop and extend their critical thinking skills in a contextualized environment. You will achieve this goal by applying strategies presented by the instructor which are designed to help you interpret, analyze, evaluate, infer, and synthesize concepts studied in preparation for Calculus.
