COURSE DESCRIPTION
This course offers to the student an opportunity to learn when and how mathematics can be used in many different real-life situations. Consequently, this course will help
students expand their content knowledge in mathematics. The course covers topics on matrices, sequences, series, similarity, descriptive and inferential statistics.The
following principles underlie this course:
Mathematics is useful
Mathematics is realistic and relevant
Mathematics is interesting
Mathematics is needed by all

GENERAL EDUCATION PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES AND TARGETS


Students who have taken the Gen Ed courses are expected to be individuals who posses knowledge, skills attitudes and values associated
with college educated
citizens; who demonstrate knowledge of the diversity of academic disciplines enabling them to seek creative solutions to problems
through continuous learning, technically literate, who understand and apply the values of critical thinking, strong communications skills ,
cultural awareness , acting ethically at all times personally and professionally. As such, they:
1. Demonstrate effective communication (Filipino and English) in clear and correct styles, both orally and in writing, appropriate to the
subject, purpose, occasion and audience; and listen effectively to enhance critical thinking, problem solving and collaborative abilities.
2. Manifest the ability to apply higher order analytic and creative cognitive processes to arrive at reasoned and supportable
conclusions; synthesize and apply
knowledge within and across courses and disciplines to develop creative solutions to problems.
3. Demonstrate the ability to use computer technology and appropriate software applications to produce documentation, quantitative
data presentations, and
functional graphical presentations appropriate to various academic and professional settings.
4. Exhibit an appreciation and awareness of other cultures and times, an appreciation of literature and the arts, and a perception and
discernment of a level of skill and

ability in the craft of creating and the cultural impact of the creative process and media.
5. Undergo a continuous development of the skills and awareness necessary to live as responsible, ethical, and contributing citizens
of the community, state, nation,
and world and the interpersonal skills required for effective performance in group interactions and collaborative practice
6. Demonstrate scientific literacy through the process of scientific reasoning and applying scientific principles inside and outside the
laboratory or field setting
7. Develop quantitative skills and abilities; applying the basic mathematical tools to the solution of real world problems and the ability
to use the concepts to develop
arguments, draw inferences , interpret and use them in other disciplines
8. Apply study and critical thinking skills to deal with academic concerns and problems across disciplines recognizing that skills learned
in one area can be applied in
another area.
