*College:* College of Arts and Sciences
*Department:* Mathematics
*Credit Hours:* 3

This course introduces students to a wide variety of mathematical problem solving strategies and should also greatly enhance students writing, oral communication, and collaboration skills. Topics include the following strategies: drawing a diagram, making a systematic list, use of matrix logic, looking for a pattern, identifying sub problems, analyzing units, creating an easier related problem or physical representation, working backwards, converting to algebra, changing the focus of how we look at a problem, and visualizing spatial relationships. Group projects will be assigned with the results presented both orally and in writing.Prerequisites: MATH 219 or higher with a grade of C or better.Typically Offered Fall Only.
