### MATH-105: Transition College Mathematics

Credits 3

This course is designed to be a logical foundation for both the classical instance of algebra in MATH 115 College Algebra and the alternative general education course, MATH 110 Reasoning and Problem Solving. Emphasis is on the logical and computational elements: operators, operands, expressions. Exercises address interpretation and use of math language and notation, algebra of sets, algebra of numbers, and processes utilized in solving linear and quadratic equations and inequalities. Scientific calculators are permitted in this course, but graphing calculators are not. Prerequisite: Math ACT of 19 or higher, or Math SAT 500 or higher, or a grade of C- or higher in MATH-099. Fall/Spring.

### MATH-110: Reasoning and Problem Solving

Credits 3

The mathematical reasoning involved in problem solving is explored through various mathematical concepts: coordinate geometry; functions and function notation; properties and applications of linear, quadratic, exponential, and logarithmic fuctions; elementary couting principles, basic probability; and descriptive statistics. Topics from systems of linear equations in included as time permits. Scientific calculators are required in this course; graphing calculators are permitted, but not required. A student receiving credit for MATH 110 cannot receive credit for MATH 115. Prerequisite: Mathematics ACT subscore of 21 or higher, OR SAT score of 530 or higher, OR a grade of C- or better in MATH 105. Fall/Spring.

### MATH-115: College Algebra

Credits 3

Real-valued functions are investigated including: evaluation, graphing, composition, and inverse relations; properties and applications of the exponential and logarithmic functions; solution methods for systems of equations, including matrix algebra are covered as time allows. Scientific calculators are required in this course; graphing calculators are permitted, but not required. A student receiving credit for MATH 115 cannot receive credit for MATH 110. Prerequisite: Mathematics ACT subscore of 21 or higher, OR SAT score of 530 or higher, OR a grade of C- or better in MATH 105. Fall/Spring.

### MATH-120: Trigonometry

Credits 3

Specific preparation for calculus with review of functions and inverses, graphs, right triangle trigonometry, circular functions, identities, law of sines and law of cosines, and applications. Related topics from complex numbers, mathematical induction, and sequences are covered as time allows.

Prerequisite: MATH 115 or Math ACT sub-score of 23 or higher.

### MATH-150: Calculus I

Credits 4

An emphasis on single variable differential calculus and an introduction to single variable integral calculus, with supporting material from analytic geometry. Graphing calculator strongly recommended; scientific calculator required. Prerequisite: MATH ACT subscore of 26 or higher or MATH SAT subscore of 610 or higher, or grade of C- or better in MATH-120. 5 contact hours: 4 lecture + 1 recitation/lab. Fall, Spring.

### MATH-270: Probability, Statistics

Credits 3

This introductory course in statistics covers all portions of the process of statistics. Topics in descriptive statistics and data collection are the focus of the first four chapters, including types of variables, level of measurement, measures of central tendency / dispersion, and linear regression / correlation. A study of counting and probability makes up the middle portion of the course. Various probability distributions, including binomial and normal distributions, are covered. The course ends with an introduction to inferential statistics, with a focus on parameter estimation and hypothesis testing. Graphing calculator required. Prerequisite: A grade of C- or better in MATH 110 or 115 (or equivalent), OR Math ACT sub-score of 23 or higher, OR Mathematics SAT score of 560 or higher. Fall/Spring.
