## Mathematics Course Description(s)

#### MATH0900 Essential Mathematics (3)

Whole numbers, fractions and mixed numbers, decimals, ratio, proportion, percent, measurement, geometry, introduction of algebra, solving equations, and statistics. This is a credit/no credit course. Receiving credit for this course prepares the student to take MATH1100 or MATH2240. Credit for courses numbered below 1000 is not transferable.

#### MATH1100 Liberal Arts Mathematics (3)

Students will explore mathematical ideas and logical reasoning. This class will look at mathematical applications in life which may include topics such as statistics, fair voting schemes, prime numbers, and modular arithmetic. Students will also develop their own insights and theorems through the exploration of mathematical patterns. The content of the class may vary each semester. The course satisfies the general education mathematics competency requirement. The course is designed for non-science majors. Students need to verify they have the prerequisites the first day of class. **Prerequisites:** Successful completion of MATH0900, or ACT Math score of 21 or higher, or SAT Math score of 570 or higher, or Accuplacer Elementary Algebra score of 74 or higher, or Accuplacer QRAS score of 250 or higher.

#### MATH1350 College Algebra and Geometry (3)

Basic and advanced concepts of arithmetic, algebra, functions and their graphs, and geometry are the focus of this course. The course is designed primarily for students pursuing a middle school mathematics endorsement, although other students may benefit from the content as well. **Prerequisites:** MATH0900, or ACT Math score of 23 or higher, or SAT Math score of 600 or higher, or Accuplacer College Level Math score of 50 or higher, or Accuplacer Elementary Algebra score of 117 or higher, or Accuplacer QRAS or AAF score of 265 or higher, or instructor's permission.

#### MATH1400 Trigonometry (3)

Topics include the study of the trigonometric functions, plane trigonometry, and analytic trigonometry. This course prepares students to take MATH2510. Students need to verify they have the prerequisites the first day of class. **Prerequisites:** MATH1350 (a grade of C or better), or an ACT Math score of 26 or higher, or an SAT Math score of 670 or higher, or an Accuplacer College Level Math score of 60 or higher, or Accuplacer AAF score of 285 or higher, or instructor's approval

#### MATH1510 Survey of Calculus (3)

The concepts of calculus are emphasized. All concepts are considered from the intuitive point of view. Applications are drawn primarily from business, economics, and population models. Trigonometric functions are not considered. **Prerequisites:** MATH1350 (a grade of C or better); ACT Math score of 26 or higher, or SAT Math score of 670 or higher, or Accuplacer College Level Math score of 60 or higher, or Accuplacer AAF score of 285 or higher, or Instructor's permission.

#### MATH2010 Fundamental Mathematical Structures I (3)

Includes problem solving and mathematical reasoning, sets, relations and functions, numeration, the system of whole numbers, integers and rational numbers, and number theory. Laboratory activities are included. **Prerequisites:** EDUC1100, Math ACT score of 21 or higher, or SAT Math score of 570 or higher, or Accuplacer Elementary Algebra score of 74 or higher, or Accuplacer QRAS score of 250 or higher.

#### MATH2020 Fundamental Mathematical Structures II (3)

Includes probability and statistics, basic geometric concepts and measurement, constructions, congruence, similarity and transformations. Laboratory activities are included. Students need to verify they have the prerequisites the first day of class. **Prerequisites:** MATH2010, or instructor's approval

#### MATH2240 Elementary Statistics (3)

Introduction to statistical terminology and basic concepts, including common uses and misuses of statistics. Topics include experimental design, sampling, descriptive statistics, correlation and regression, probability, and tests of significance. This is a valuable course for students in all majors. This course satisfies the general education mathematics competency requirement. **Prerequisites:** ACT Math score of 21 or higher, or SAT Math score of 570 or higher, or Accuplacer Elementary Algebra score of 74 or higher, or Accuplacer QRAS score of 250 or higher, or credit for MATH0900., or instructor's approval

#### MATH2310 Discrete Mathematics (3)

An introduction to graph theory, logical operators, mathematical induction, enumeration and Boolean algebra. Students need to verify they have the prerequisites the first day of class. **Prerequisites:** MATH1350 (a grade of C or better).

#### MATH2510 Calculus I (4)

Limits, derivatives (including trigonometric functions), integration and applications of the derivative, l'Hopital's Rule, area. AAF Accuplacer margin for error is already built in (1-2 questions can be missed and still achieve a 300). Students need to verify they have the prerequisites the first day of class. **Prerequisites:** MATH1400 (a grade of C or better); ACT Math score of 28 or higher, or SAT Math score of 710 or higher, or Accuplacer College Level Math score of 103 or higher, or Accuplacer AAF score of 300 or higher, or instructor's approval

#### MATH3320 Linear Algebra (3)

A study of vector spaces, linear transformations, matrices, determinants and system of equations. Special attention is given to the connection between linear transformations and matrices. **Prerequisites:** MATH2510 or MATH1350.

#### MATH3570 Teaching Mathematics in the Secondary Schools (2)

Course topics include strategies appropriate to this subject field, instructional materials and tools, and curricular structure common to this subject in the secondary school. Includes opportunities for candidates to assist and teach a minimum of 20 hours. (See EDUC7657)
