MATH 1010 Fundamentals of Mathematics (3)
Develops and strengthens the concepts and skills of elementary mathematics, particularly skills related to various disciplines of the college curriculum. For credit only.
Introduces the basic topics of algebra, including linear and quadratic equations.
For students interested in applications of elementary mathematics to everyday life. May be repeated for credit if content differs.
This course provides the student with a variety of opportunities to strengthen math skills necessary for analyzing numerical information and solving practical business problems. Students will learn to translate business-related problems into simple equations. Topics include applications of ratio and proportion, computing taxes, commercial discounts, simple and compound interest, basic statistics, and graphs.
This course will emphasize the use of basic algebra concepts in solving numerical problems common in business and management. Students will apply skills of writing, solving, and graphing elementary equations. Students will apply basic linear programming methods to management science problems.
Covers various topics of mathematics that are both conceptual and practical. Course is designed to enable a student to appreciate mathematics and its application to numerous disciplines and professions.
This course explores algebra through the lens of the modular systems, each a finite and unique world generated by remainders. Students will develop number sense, problem-solving skills, and a deeper understanding of arithmetic and algebra as they experience the beauty, underlying structure, surprising results, and creative potential of mathematics.
Covers sets, the real number system, functions, equations, inequalities, and logarithms.
Presents trigonometric functions using the unit circle. Prerequisite: MATH 1430 or equivalent competence.
Introduces the ideas of calculus without the rigor associated with the course in the standard calculus sequence. It can be used by students who are not mathematics or science majors to understand the concepts of calculus well enough to apply them to their own discipline. It might also be used as a stepping stone to get a head start before taking the standard calculus course. The emphasis is on computational ability, problem solving, and applications. Prerequisite: proficiency in algebra.
Studies set terminology and operations, subsets, the power set, Cartesian products, and finite cardinality, relations as sets of ordered pairs, characteristic functions, digraphs, functions as relations, types of functions and relations. Prerequisite: MATH 1430.
Covers all the fundamental topics in deductive logic. A thorough introduction to propositional and predicate logic.
Supplementary experiences with applications and technology designed to augment the understanding of Calculus I. May be repeated once for credit. Prerequisite: taken concurrently with MATH 1610.
Introduces differential and integral calculus of one variable, culminating in the fundamental theorem of calculus. Introduces calculus of transcendental functions. May be repeated once for credit. Prerequisite: high school trigonometry or MATH 1440 with grade of B or better. Only offered in a 16-week format.
Continues the study of calculus: the transcendental functions, techniques of integration, applications of the integral, polar coordinates, parametric equations, sequences, and series. Prerequisite: MATH 1610. Only offered in a 16-week format.
Supplementary experience with applications and technology, designed to augment the understanding of Calculus II. Prerequisite: taken concurrently with MATH 1620.
