Integrated learning allows students to make simple connections among ideas and experiences and across disciplines and perspectives.  The LSU Integrative Learning Core (ILC) curriculum is designed to develop student abilities to transfer their learning to new situations and demonstrate a sense of self as a learner.  A fundamental goal of the ILC is to foster students' practical and intellectual capacities associated with integrative learning in preparation for high competence and functionality in their post-baccalaureate careers. This course fulfills the Louisiana Board of Regents (BoR) Area of Mathematical/Analytical Reasoning and provides students experience with the ILC proficiency of Quantitative Literacy. The BoR Common Course name and number for this course is CMAT 1235 Algebra & Trigonometry.
