This non-credit course is a refresher for students entering a Saskatchewan Polytechnic
technology program. It is recommended for students who have completed
high school math more than five years ago or any student who is anxious
about the mathematics component of their program. The course will review
the basics of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, exponential and logarithmic
equations. Students will have an opportunity to develop skills in problem
solving and calculator use. There is no instructor and no book or manual;
the course features video demonstrations and animations of mathematical
procedures, as well as interactive exercises and quizzes. Students typically work through the course in 10 to 20 hours.
