141 Course Descriptions MAT104-C Applied Math Topics 3 This course is designed to give you a thorough review of the four basic functions of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers, decimals, fractions, integers, measurements and percents. Basic linear equations and basic geometric figures for perimeter, area, and volume will be covered. You are then given exercises in using these mathematical skills in special occupational applications. MAT106-E Elementary Algebra 3 This course provides you with basic algebra skills. It will cover topics of linear equations and inequalities, formulas, systems of equations, quadratic equations, and factoring. MAT108-C Math Fundamentals 3 This course is designed to provide you with a broad overview of mathematical concepts including operations and problem solving with fractions, decimal numbers, percents, ratio and proportion problems, measurement, basic statistics, and basic geometry. Estimation and number sense are stressed throughout the course. Calculator usage is also covered. MAT110-A Math for Liberal Arts 3 This course is designed to introduce you to a variety of interesting mathematics topics. Emphasis will be on problem solving and real-life applications of these topics. This course is designed for anyone seeking a two-year degree or any other student who is interested in learning a variety of mathematics topics. One year of high school algebra is recommended but not required. MAT117-A Math for Elementary Teachers 3 This course contains basic mathematical content pertinent to elementary teaching. Topics include problem solving, set theory, number systems and bases, number theory, informal geometry, measurement, and elementary probability and statistics. This course does not count toward mathematics requirements for A.A. or A.S. degree. MAT121-A College Algebra 4 This course is designed to strengthen and expand your algebra skills. The emphasis is on using the concept of an algebraic function to model real-life situations. Different types of models including linear, polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric models are presented along with the supporting algebraic skills and procedures. MAT123-E Basic Algebra & Trigonometry 4 The mathematical subjects 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 arithmetic, units of measurement, basic algebra, basic geometry, right triangle trigonometry, functions and graphs, simultaneous linear equations, and basic solid geometry. 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. MAT132-E Algebra, Geometry & Trigonometry I 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.
