# Basic Numeracy: Beginner’s Guide to Mathematics

Introduction to mastering Math

The course is targeted towards adult learner’s in need of mastering the fundamentals and basics required to get ready for higher courses in Mathematics and other mathematically inclined courses such as Economics, Statistics, Accounting and Physical Sciences. learners should expect to have their ability to understand and interpret numbers enhanced. The course also seeks to boast learner’s confidence when faced with mathematical questions and challenges. The learners should expect their ability to make day to day decisions to also improve drastically. In this course we cover numbers and variable operations where learners will learn the foundation of numbers and various operations. We also elaborate and unpack linear equations where straight lines will be covered in detail from the theory of Cartesian planes to successfully plotting straight lines in the most simplistic manner, Expression’s simplification, solving for the unknown variable and manipulating equations will also be taught and lastly the Introduction to Financial mathematics mainly focusing on Simple Interest and Compound Interest are also covered in detail. For learners to successfully comprehend the course, no much mathematical knowledge is required since the course aims on ensuring that mathematical literacy is taught in the most simple and passionate manner to help students successfully have a great journey in mathematics.
