This textbook is a compilation of chapters with educational purposes for the course MATH 103 in Spring 2023. The first part (Chapters 1 and 2) includes logic and critical thinking. Understanding the thinking process and strategies for solving problems in an effective way will provide students with skills that will be required to succeed in all college math courses. The second part (Chapters 3 & 4) is an opportunity to develop numbers sense through strengthening conceptual understanding of fractions and algebraic thinking. This will help develop foundational mathematical knowledge for college mathematics courses. The third and fourth parts of this textbook are explicit connections to society through understanding real life mathematical examples connected to finances and statistics.
