People use math every day, often without even realizing it. Determining how much liquid a pitcher will hold, figuring out sales tax, and calculating a tip all involve math skills. Occupations ranging from sales to sociology use mathematics, and so do leisure time activities such as music, art, and sports. This course builds on the math knowledge that the student already has. The lessons examine decimals, percents, and both customary and metric measurement. They also introduce ratios and proportions. Moreover, throughout the course, the student has opportunities to apply these topics to real-life situations. The goal of this course is to help the student to continue developing the math skills needed for daily living and further studies.

Assignments have between 20 and 34 questions, with point values from 1 to 10 points for a total of 100 points each. Assignments are open book and do not need to be completed in one sitting. Students are expected to do their own work, independent of any outside help. Students will need 1 to 3 hours to complete an assignment. You must show your work and computations when solving the problems in your assignments. Also, you are not permitted to use a calculator.
Students are expected to follow Hadley's Student Code of Conduct. Also, by submitting an assignment, students acknowledge that they have completed the work themselves and without plagiarism. Refer to the Student Handbook for the Student Code of Conduct and Hadley's full plagiarism policy. Plagiarism may result in the requirement to redo the assignment, a failing grade on the assignment, or even expulsion from the Hadley Institute.
After completing this course, the student will have the math skills needed for daily living and further studies.
