This competency-based model has been developed to upgrade the mathematical skills of typical minority students in urban high schools. The central philosophy is that an underprepared student of mathematics can be made computationally literate and mathematically viable in three semesters, whatever the level of preparation. Units covered are Arithmetic and Computation, Algebraic Expressions, Exponents and Radicals, Algebra of Equation Solving, Graphs and Their Interpretation, Geometry and Measurement, Basic Statistics, and Numerical Trigonometry.
