Choose one of the following mathematics courses.
MAT-110 College Math
College Mathematics is intended for students majoring in liberal arts or other fields that do not have a specific mathematics requirement. Its purpose is to give students a broad exposure to a variety of applications of mathematics in the real world and to understand related spiritual foundations. Topics include reasoning, voting methods, apportionment, mathematics of finance, logic, shapes and patterns in geometry, networks and directed graphs, probability and statistics. Computational skill, spatial reasoning, calculator usage and logical analysis abilities are developed.
MAT-121 College Algebra
College Algebra introduces the study of polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions, in addition to the quadratic formula, geometric series, binomial series, systems of equations and probability.
This course serves as a collection of topics relevant to calculus based courses. Focus will be given on exponential and logarithmic functions in addition to properties, graphs and applications of the sine, cosine and tangent functions, along with their reciprocals and inverse functions. Connections are made with right and oblique triangles, polar coordinates and equations concerning polar coordinates and conic sections.
MAT-131 Calculus I
The study of rates of change for polynomial, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions, tangent lines, graphs, maximum values and areas. Applications of calculus will be modeled with graphing calculators.
