FUNDAMENTALS OF COLLEGE ALGEBRA
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.
FINITE MATHEMATICS FOR BUSINESS AND SOCIAL SCIENCES (GM)
Mathematical preparation for the understanding of quantitative methods in management and social sciences. Topics include sets, relations, linear functions, interest, annuities, matrices, solution of linear systems by graphical, algebraic, Gauss-Jordan, and inverse methods, linear programming by graphical and simplex methods, counting and probability. 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.
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.
INTRODUCTION TO STATISTICAL REASONING AND ANALYSIS (GM)
A course on the principles, procedures and concepts surrounding the production, summarization and analysis of data. Emphasis on critical reasoning and interpretation of statistical results. Content includes: probability, sampling, and research design; statistical inference, modeling and computing; practical application culminating in a research project. Unreq: ECON 245, PSYCH 215, SOCIOLGY 295
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 need to strengthen their basic algebra skills. Topics include properties of the real numbers, linear and quadratic equations, linear inequalities, exponents, polynomials, rational and radical expressions, and systems of linear equations. The course credits count towards the semester credit load and GPA, but are not included in the 120 credit graduation requirement.
