Many jobs require basic mathematical skills to complete everyday tasks quickly and efficiently. Mathematical skills are also vital to everyday lives outside of the professional sector. The Alison learning path in mathematics goes from basic mathematical theories to advanced principles. This learning path will benefit you if you want to increase your mathematical skills for either your work or professional life. The Alison learning path in mathematics will take you from a low level of understanding to a more comprehensive advanced level. You will look at important mathematical principles such as algebra, geometry, statistics, and probability. You will learn about how to build on, and understand the implications which basic principles can have on complex problems. You will also have the opportunity to learn about what level of mathematical understanding is needed for the ACT and SAT math exams.
