FUNDAMENTALS OF COLLEGE ALGEBRA

Mathematics 141

A functional approach to algebra with emphasis on applications to different disciplines. Topics include linear, exponential, logarithmic, quadratic, polynomial and rational equations and functions, systems of linear equations, linear inequalities, radicals and rational exponents, complex numbers, variation. Properties of exponents, factoring, and solving linear equations are reviewed.


3 Units

FINITE MATHEMATICS FOR BUSINESS AND SOCIAL SCIENCES (GM)

Mathematics 143

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.


3 Units

Unreq: ECON 245, PSYCH 215, SOCIOLGY 295


5 Units

CALCULUS AND ANALYTIC GEOMETRY I (GM)

Mathematics 253

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.


4 Units

BEGINNING ALGEBRA

Mathematics 41

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.


1 Units

ACTUARIAL EXAMINATION PREPARATION FOR EXAM P/1

Mathematics 448

The course is designed to prepare students for Exam P/1, the first actuarial exam which tests students' knowledge of and ability to use and apply fundamental probability tools in assessing risk. Basic concepts from risk theory are introduced, probability theory is reviewed, and sample questions from previous exams are discussed.


1 Units

ACTUARIAL EXAMINATION PREPARATION

Mathematics 449

This course is designed to prepare students for Exam FM/2, the second acturial exam which tests students' knowledge and understanding of the fundamental concepts of financial mathematics. Derivatives are introduced, interest theory is reviewed, and sample questions from previous exams and practice exams from other sources are discussed.


1-5 Units

INDEPENDENT STUDY

Mathematics 498

Study of a selected topic or topics under the direction of a faculty member. Repeatable. Department Consent required.
