FAN X99 - Foundations of Analytical and Quantitative Reasoning (4)
Designed for students who need to upgrade their mathematical background in preparation for SFU Q courses. Also recommended for students who wish to refresh skills after several years away from mathematics. An in-depth look at what mathematics is; mathematical reasoning, problem solving and math study skills. Review of fundamental topics and concepts of mathematics and their real-world applications. This course aims to develop students' math study skills, confidence in their quantitative abilities, and to learn how understanding mathematics is both one of the keys to mastering other disciplines, and useful in everyday situations. Units from this course do not count towards the 120 units required for an SFU degree; however, the course grade is included in the calculation of the student's cumulative GPA. Students who have taken, have received transfer credit for, or are currently taking MATH 150, 151, 154 or 157 may not take FAN X99 for credit without the permission from the Department of Mathematics.
