The total weight of two beluga whales and three orca whales is 36,000 pounds. As you’ll see in this course, if given one additional fact, you can determine the weight of each whale. To answer this weighty question, we’ll give you all the math tools you’ll need. The setting for this course is an amusement park with animals, rides, and games. Your job will be to apply what you learn to dozens of real-world scenarios.
Equations, geometric relationships, and statistical probabilities can sometimes be dull, but not in this class! Your park guide (teacher) will take you on a grand tour of problems and puzzles that show how things work and how mathematics provides valuable tools for everyday living.
Come reinforce your existing algebra and geometry skills to learn solid skills with the algebraic and geometric concepts you’ll need for further study of mathematics. We have an admission ticket with your name on it and we promise an exciting ride with no waiting!
