Mathematics Course Descriptions

MTH 60/65 - Elementary Algebra

The student will demonstrate knowledge of basic algebra notation, linear equations and inequalities, graphing, and linear systems, exponents and polynomials (MTH 60); and factoring, rational expressions, roots, radicals, quadratic functions, and additional related topics (MTH 65).

MTH 70 - Intensive Elementary Algebra

This course is an intensive review of the topics in elementary algebra designed to provide the student with the prerequisite knowledge necessary for success in MTH 95.

MTH 95 - Intermediate Algebra

The student will study and demonstrate knowledge of prerequisite skills needed for MTH 105 and MTH 111. These skills include solving algebraic equalities and inequalities, logarithmic equations, and systems of linear and nonlinear equations. Also included is graphing algebraic functions, logarithmic functions and conic sections.

MTH 105 - Contemporary Mathematics

This is a mathematics problem solving course that applies prerequisite algebra skills. Students practice critical thinking skills in a variety of application areas chosen from the physical and social sciences, modeling, consumer math, statistics, geometry, number theory, logic, probability, and recreational math. This course stresses clear communication, problem solving strategies, group problem solving experiences, and appropriate use of graphics calculators and computer software as problem solving tools.

MTH 111 - College Algebra

Students will demonstrate knowledge of functions in general, and polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions in particular. Students will also demonstrate knowledge of linear systems, sequences and series, mathematical induction, and binomial expansion.

MTH 112 - Elementary Functions

The students will study and demonstrate knowledge of trigonometric functions, applications of trigonometry, trigonometric identities and equations, complex trigonometric numbers, linear programming, partial fractions, probability and data analysis, conic sections, parametric equations, polar coordinates, and vectors.

MTH 211/212/213 - Foundations of Elementary Mathematics

The student will study and demonstrate knowledge of problem solving, sets, relations, whole numbers, numeration systems, number theory (MTH 211); integers, rational numbers, real numbers, mathematical systems (MTH 212); geometry, probability and statistics, and other topics in elementary mathematics (MTH 213).

MTH 241 - Business Calculus

The students will study and demonstrate knowledge of the basic concepts of differential and integral calculus with emphasis on the basic techniques and applications. The approach will be from and intuitive point of view.

MTH 243 - Probability and Statistics

The students will demonstrate knowledge of graphical and numerical descriptive statistics, probability theory, probability distributions, statistical inference, and regression. The emphasis will be on statistical inference making and interpretation of results of statistical tests.

MTH 251/252/253 - Calculus

The student will study and demonstrate knowledge of limits, continuity, the derivative and applications, including trigonometry (MTH 251); definite integral, differentiation and integration of logarithmic, exponential, trigonometric, and inverse functions and applications (MTH 252); indeterminate forms, improper integrals, infinite sequences and series, analytic geometry, polar coordinates and an introduction to vectors (MTH 253).
