Designed for students with minimum algebra background or who have been away from mathematics for several years. Subject areas to be covered include arithmetic of whole numbers, fraction & decimals, ratios & percents, & basic algebraic concepts. Prepares the student for Elementary Algebra. This course is offered through a contractual arrangement with the local WTCS institution as MAT 092. This course is offered by the campus TRIO/student support services program as MAT 094.
Intended for students with little or no previous algebra. Topics include the real number system and operations with real numbers and algebraic expressions, linear equations and inequalities, polynomials, factoring, and introduction to quadratic equations.
Intended for students with little or no previous algebra. This course is the first course in a two-course sequence (with MAT 103) for Math, Science, Business, Nursing, and Engineering students. This sequence satisfies the preparation for pre-algebra requirements. Students will be able to evaluate, construct, and communicate arguments using quantitative methods and formal reasoning.
Intended for students with little or no previous algebra. Topics include the real number system and operations with real numbers and algebraic expressions, linear equations and inequalities, polynomials, factoring, and Introduction to quadratic equations.
MAT 103 is the second of a two-course sequence for Math, Science, Business, Nursing, and Engineering students. Review of Number Systems. Coordinate Geometry, and Properties of Integer and Rational Exponents; Radicals; Polynomials; Introduction to Elementary Functions; Arithmetic of Numbers, Polynomials, Radicals, and Elementary Functions; Solving Linear and Quadratic Equations and Inequalities; Modeling.
This course is intended to develop analytic reasoning and the ability to solve quantitative problems. Topics to be covered include construction and interpretation of graphs, functional relationships, descriptive statistics, geometry and spatial visualization, the math of finance, exponential growth, and basic probability. Appropriate use of units and dimensions, estimates, mathematical notation, and available technology will be emphasized throughout the course.
Definition of function and sequence; linear and nonlinear functions and graphs including logarithmic and exponential functions; systems of linear equations and Gauss-Jordan method; theory of polynomial equations; conic sections and optional topics such as mathematical induction, matrix solution of linear systems and Cramer's rule.
Trigonometric functions, their basic properties and graphs, identities, inverse trigonometric functions, solving trigonometric equations, solutions of triangles.
TOPICS IN FINITE MATHEMATICS
Matrices, linear programming and applications, probability, Markov chains, and mathematics of finance.
CALCULUS AND ANALYTICAL GEOMETRY I
Analytic geometry, functions, limits and continuity, the derivative, integrals, techniques and applications of differentiation, applications of integration, logarithmic and exponential functions, and trigonometric functions. Students may not earn more than six credits by taking both MAT 211 and MAT 221.
ORDINARY DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS
Ordinary differential equations of the first and second-order, series solutions, higher-order linear equations, the Wronskian, Laplace transform and applications, numerical methods and boundary value problems.
