Welcome to this research guide for Mathematics for Liberal Arts. This guide will help you find resources that you can use for your course project and CRA paper. You can either search on your own using the search tools from the drop-down list at the left or choose the pre-selected sources from the drop-down list at the left. The How-To page provides answers to some frequently asked questions. Be sure to take a look at the Writing Helps page.
To function in the most simplistic mathematical environment, you must have some mathematical knowledge to use as tools. This course will help provide those tools and equip you to better deal with certain mathematical dilemmas. The first half of the course looks at basic number sense and reasoning. This includes integers, fractions, decimals, percents, and exponents, among other things. We will look at some algebraic concepts, such as solving and graphing linear equations. We will also examine perimeter and area. The second half of the course looks at real-life mathematical applications and examines some basic statistical concepts. It includes the topics of budgeting and personal finance, which are pertinent to everyone but particularly to missionaries and pastors. Other concepts in this part will be simple / compound interest, conversions, and large purchases.

Hi! My name is Daniel Graetzer. I am the professor for the Mathematics for Liberal Arts course. Feel free to ask any question you might have about the course. This short document explains the theory and practices behind the Global University Instructional Design that seeks to approximate the interaction of a classroom professor with students.
