Courses - Spring 2020

MATH107

A goal is to convey the power of mathematics as shown by a variety of problems which can be modeled and solved by quantitative means. Also included is an introduction to probability. Topics include data analysis, equations, systems of equations, inequalities, elementary linear programming, Venn diagrams, counting, basic probability, permutations, combinations, tree diagrams, standard normal and normal distributions. The mathematics of finance is covered. The course includes problem solving and decision making in economics, management, and social sciences.

MATH113

Topics include elementary functions including graphs and applications of: polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Systems of equations and applications. Trigonometric functions: angle and radian measure, graphs and applications.

MATH115

Preparation for MATH120, MATH130 or MATH140. Elementary functions and graphs: polynomials, rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions. Algebraic techniques preparatory for calculus.

MATH120

Basic ideas of differential and integral calculus, with emphasis on elementary techniques of differentiation and applications.

MATH135

Basic discrete mathematics, with emphasis on relevant models and techniques to the life sciences.

MATH140

Introduction to calculus, including functions, limits, continuity, derivatives and applications of the derivative, sketching of graphs of functions, definite and indefinite integrals, and calculation of area. The course is especially recommended for science, engineering and mathematics majors.
