  The American Mathematical Association of TwoYear College (AMATYC) recommends that students in their first two years of college should engage in substantial problem solving, expand their mathematical reasoning, and learn to communicate mathematical ideas, in addition to knowing and understanding mathematics content. 
  Because the objectives of the course are different from most other mathematics classes, alternate assessments such as written work (both short response and more developed essays/explanations), presentations, portfolios, group activities, etc., will be used in addition to exams. 
  The student will define terms related to proportionality (ratio, rate, proportion, percent, etc.) and use them appropriately; performance will be satisfactory if the definitions are consistent with those given in the text and usage is appropriate.
