Note: This page uses the original course names from 2009:
"FML" was the original name for the "Mathematical Literacy for College Students" (MLCS) course
"Transitions" was the original name for the "Algebraic Literacy" course
This page provides overall information on the New Life Vision for developmental mathematics.
For each topic, there is a short video presentation in two formats. Most people should use the 'flash' video (first one), as web browsers support that format (in general). The alternate format is provided as a back-up.
