In our society, we see and hear about important topics and trends that involve numbers. In this class, participants work to understand what these numbers mean. Students will use percentages to make comparisons, interpret and construct graphs to describe phenomena, compare ways of describing quantities through unit conversions, explore the ways we use the idea of "average," and use rates and ratios to describe how things grow and change. Learning happens in small student groups, using technology, and through writing. The class is project-based, meaning that students complete projects to demonstrate what they've learned. 01/07/2020-03/19/2020 Lecture Tuesday, Thursday 10:00AM - 11:50AM, Room to be Announced
