This course is designed for students majoring in business, social sciences, and life sciences. This course provides an overview of descriptive and inferential statistics. The students learn to read, interpret and present data in a well-organized way. This includes frequency distributions, graphs, measures of central tendency and variability, correlation and linear regression. While discussing inferential statistics, the students learn to make generalizations about populations. This includes probability, sampling techniques, confidence intervals, and hypothesis tests. Prerequisite: MATH 070, MATH 070D, or MATH 073 with a grade of “C” or better or appropriate assessment.
Mathematics for Elementary Teachers
This course is designed to deepen and extend the student’s under- standing of the foundations of the mathematics taught in elementary school. Because it is intended for the student preparing to teach at that level, it frequently refers to and uses materials and methodology appropriate for students at that level, but it is not a methods course. The course is concept-driven with an emphasis on problem solving. Concrete manipulatives are used to give meaning to abstract mathematical concepts. Topics include numeration and place value concepts, models and algorithms for operations with whole numbers, integers, fractions and decimals, and the structure and properties of the real number system. Prerequisite: MATH 070 or MATH 070D or MATH 073 with a grade of “C” or better or appropriate assessment.
Mathematics for Elementary Teachers
Topics include probability, statistics, informal geometry in two and three dimensions, coordinate geometry, measurement, similarity, tessellations, constructions, and an introduction to Euclidean geometry. Manipulatives and appropriate technology are used as tools for exploration and problem solving. This course is intended for elementary education majors planning to teach in elementary or middle schools. Prerequisite: MATH 060 and MATH 140 with a grade of “C” or better.
This course will cover linear, quadratic, polynomial, power, exponential, and logarithmic functions and their applications from a graphical, numerical, and analytical point of view. The course also will cover systems of equations and inequalities and sequences and series. The course serves as preparation for students planning to take Elements of Calculus (MATH 170). Graphing technology will be required. Prerequisite: MATH 070 or MATH 070D or MATH 073 with a grade of “C” or better or appropriate assessment.
Elements of Calculus
This is a one-semester course in the fundamentals of algebra-based calculus and its applications to the fields of business, economics, social sciences, biology and technology. Course topics include graphing of functions, derivatives and integrals of polynomials, exponential and logarithmic functions, applications of derivatives and integrals, multi-variable derivatives and differential equations. Prerequisite: MATH 070 or MATH 070D or MATH 073 with a grade of “C” or better or appropriate assessment.
This course is designed for students who are majoring in math, science, and engineering. This course equips students with the skills necessary for success in pre-calculus. It presents the concepts of plane trigonometry using a functions approach. Included is a study of basic relations, functions, and transformations, as well as circular functions, trigonometric functions of angles, identities, inverse functions and their equations and solutions of triangles. Prerequisite: MATH 070 or MATH 070D or MATH 073 with a grade of “C” or better or appropriate assessment.
This course is designed to prepare students for the study of calculus. It presents a comprehensive study of linear, quadratic, polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, rational, and trigonometric functions. Inequalities, introductory analytical geometry, polar coordinates, polar equations and their graphs, DeMoivre’s Theorem and an introduction to sequences are also included. This course is a prerequisite for MATH 190. Prerequisite: MATH 175 with a grade of “C” or better or appropriate assessment.
MATH 190 is a semester course designed primarily for those students planning to pursue programs in engineering, mathematics, computer science, and physical sciences. This course includes topics of differential and integral calculus of a single variable. Prerequisite: MATH 180 with a grade of “C” or better or appropriate assessment.
The course includes techniques of integration, improper integrals, anti-derivatives, application of the definite integral, differential equations, Taylor polynomials, series, vectors, the dot product and the cross product. This course is the second course of the calculus sequence required of engineering, physics, and mathematics majors. Prerequisite: MATH 190 or MATH 190H with a grade of “C” or better or appropriate assessment.
This course involves a study of functions of two or more variables using the principles of calculus, vector analysis, and parametric equations. Included is a study of solid regions using partial differentiation, vector analysis, and multiple integration. This course also includes a study of vector calculus topics, such as line and surface integrals, Green’s Theorem, Stokes’ Theorem, and the Divergence Theorem. This is the third course of the calculus sequence required of engineering, physics, and mathematics majors. Prerequisite: MATH 191 with a grade of “C” or better.
This course is an introductory study of linear algebra with applications to problems in the physical and social sciences. It includes a study of vectors, systems of linear equations, matrices, determinants, the Fundamental Theorem of Invertible Matrices, Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors, orthogonality, vector spaces and proof by mathematical induction. This course is required for Engineering, Physics, Computer Science and Mathematics majors. Prerequisite: MATH 191 with a grade of “C” or better.
This course is a study of ordinary differential equations with applications in the physical and social sciences. The course includes a study of linear and nonlinear first-order differential equations, linear higher order differential equations, systems of differential equations, power series solution of differential equations, and Laplace transforms. This course is a continuation of MATH 190, MATH 191, and MATH 250 and is required for all Engineering, Physics, and Mathematics majors. Prerequisite: MATH 250 with a grade of “C” or better.
