Designed to give students a broad understanding and appreciation of mathematics. Includes topics not usually covered in a traditional algebra course. Topics encompass some algebra, problem solving, counting principles, probability, statistics, and consumer mathematics. This course is designed to meet the University Proficiency Requirement in mathematics for those students who do not wish to take any course which has MATH 141 as a prerequisite. ACT Math subscore 19-23 (SAT 460-550)
Introduction to college algebra. Topics and concepts extend beyond those taught in a beginning algebra course. A proficiency course for those who have not had sufficient preparation in high school to allow them to take MATH 143 or MATH 152. ACT Math subscore 19-23 (SAT 460-550)
FINITE MATHEMATICS FOR BUSINESS AND SOCIAL SCIENCES (GM)
Mathematical preparation for the understanding of various quantitative methods in modern management and social sciences. Topics included are sets, relations, linear functions, interest, annuities, matrix theory, the solution of linear systems by the graphical, algebraic, Gauss-Jordan, and inverse methods, linear programming by graphical and simplex methods, counting and probability, and decision theory. College of Business and Economics majors must take this course on a conventional grade basis.
MATHEMATICS FOR THE ELEMENTARY TEACHER I (GM)
A study of sets, whole numbers, fractions, integers, decimals and real numbers, basic arithmetic operations and their properties, standard and alternative algorithms and estimations strategies; problem-solving, proportional reasoning and algebraic thinking. Manipulatives and cooperative learning activities are used throughout the course. For elementary education majors.
MATHEMATICS FOR THE ELEMENTARY TEACHER II
Topics in probability and statistics, with emphasis on descriptive techniques. Investigations in geometric figures, measurement, construction, transformations, congruent and similar geometric figures. Problem solving strategies, manipulatives, and cooperative learning activities are emphasized throughout the course. All students will prepare a mathematics based activity and present it at an area elementary school.
ELEMENTARY FUNCTIONS (GM)
Review of algebraic functions, inequalities, mathematical induction, theory of equations, exponential and logarithmic functions, circular functions, trigonometric identities and equations, inverse trigonometric functions, solution of triangles.
CALCULUS AND ANALYTIC GEOMETRY I (GM)
Review of algebraic and trigonometric functions, transcendental functions, limits, study of the derivative, techniques of differentiation, continuity, applications of the derivative, L' Hopital's Rule and indeterminate forms, the Riemann integral, Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, and substitution rule.
A course for those who have a sound background in basic arithmetic, but who have not been exposed to algebra, or who need to strengthen their basic algebra skills. Topics include properties of the real numbers, linear and quadratic equations, linear inequalities, exponents, polynomials, rational expressions, the straight line, and systems of linear equations. The course counts towards the semester credit load and will be computed into the grade point average. It will not, however, be included in the credits necessary for graduation. It may be taken for a conventional grade or on a satisfactory/no credit basis. Prereq: MATH 040 or equivalent demonstration of capability. Students cannot receive credit for MATH 041 if they have been waived from the Mathematics Proficiency Requirement. Not available to students who have satisfied the University Proficiency requirement in mathematics.
Study of a selected topic or topics under the direction of a faculty member. Repeatable. Department Consent required.
