MAT124-E Algebra & Trigonometry 3 This course is a continuation of Basic Algebra & Trigonometry. The topics of the course are trigonometric functions of any angle, vectors, exponents and radicals, the j-Operator, exponential and logarithmic functions, addition types of equations, and systems of equations. Prerequisite: MAT123-E MAT128-A Pre-Calculus 4 A higher-level mathematics course intended to prepare students for calculus or advanced science courses. Topics covered include logarithms and exponential functions, trigonometric functions, complex numbers, analytic geometry, and topics in the theory of equations. A graphing calculator is required. MAT129-A Precalculus 5 An intensive course in college algebra and trigonometry. Topics include functions and their graphs, exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometric identities and equations, sequences and series, limits, mathematical induction, the binomial theorem, permutations, and combinations, probability, and applications. Graphing, calculator, and computer use throughout. Prerequisite: MAT121 MAT130-A Trigonometry 3 This course is designed to develop your knowledge of trigonometry and related skills prior to the study of calculus. The six trigonometric functions and applications of those functions are emphasized. Other topics covered may include graphing of the trigonometric functions, trigonometric identities and equations, analytic geometry, and exponential and logarithmic functions. MAT131-E Trigonometry 1 This course provides you with a basic coverage of trigonometry including the definition of the six trigonometric functions, graphs of these functions, solving trigonometric equations, and working with trigonometric identities. Prerequisite or Corequisite: MAT121-A or an equivalent Algebra course MAT132-E Algebra, Geometry & Trigonometry 4 The topics of this course are developed in simple stages and are applied to the solution of practical problems. The topics of the course are a review of algebra, units of measurement, basic geometry, trigonometry, functions and graphs, systems of linear equations, quadratic equations, and vectors. MAT133-E Algebra, Geometry & Trigonometry II 3 This course is a continuation of Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry I. The topics of the course are exponents and radicals, complex numbers, exponential and logarithmic functions, additional types of equations and systems of equations, equations of higher degree, inequalities, variation, trig identities, and plane analytic geometry. Prerequisite: MAT132-E MAT140-A Finite Math 3 This course is designed to provide you with skills in finite mathematics. Topics covered will include linear equations, matrices, linear programming, sets and counting, probability and statistics, and finance. Many types of applications will be presented throughout the course. This math course is appropriate for any first or second year college student and is especially useful for those students majoring in business or in the social or biological sciences. MAT150-A Discrete Math 3 This course is designed to introduce you to topics and concepts in discrete mathematics. Discrete mathematics is that part of mathematics dealing with finite—but often large— sets of objects. Discrete mathematics is to be contrasted with ‘continuous’ mathematics, for example the classical theory of calculus. Its rise in popularity coincides with the rise of the computer. Topics covered in this class will include logic and methods of proof, sets, relations, functions, recursion, induction, and counting principles. MAT156-A Statistics 3 This course is designed to provide you with a foundation of statistical concepts and procedures that can aid the student as both a consumer and producer of statistical information. The emphasis is on collecting data, descriptive statistics, probability, binomial and normal distributions, estimating, hypothesis testing, and regression analysis. MAT165-A Business Calculus 3 Business Calculus with Applications is designed for students in business, social sciences, and life sciences. Topics covered in this course are limits, derivatives, and applications of the derivative related to business, social science, and the life sciences, integration, and applications of the integral to business, social science, and the life sciences. A graphing calculator is required. MAT166-A Calculus for Business & Social Science 5 A study of functions, limits, continuity, differentiation, and integration. Emphasis is on theory and applications throughout. This course is designed to satisfy the Calculus requirement for most non-math and non-engineering major students. MAT210-A Calculus I 4 This course is designed to provide you with a basic knowledge of calculus. Topics covered include the notion of limit, the derivative, and the integral as well as practical applications of these concepts. Topics will be approached from numerical, graphical, and analytical standpoints. Prerequisites: MAT121-A and MAT131-E or an equivalent Precalculus course MAT211-A Calculus I 5 A review of analytic geometry and functions; a study of limits, continuity, differentiation, and integration. Emphasis on theory, applications, and computer use throughout. Prerequisite: MAT121-A MAT216-A Calculus II 4 The study of calculus is expanded in this course to include more advanced topics. Topics include techniques of integration, infinite series, analytic geometry, and polar coordinates. The emphasis of the course will be on problem solving techniques and theory.
