## Course Description

Developmental Math I (Math 98)

Major topics include algebraic expressions, solving equations, solving inequalities, exponents, polynomials, graphs and equations of lines, functions and systems of linear equations.

Developmental Math II (Math 99)

Major topics include polynomials and factoring, rational expressions and equations, radical expressions and equations, and solving and graphing with quadratics.

College Algebra (MATH 1015) and Algebra for College Students (MATH 1005)

In-depth treatment of solving equations and inequalities; function properties and graphs; inverse functions; linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions with applications; systems of equations.

Finite Math (MATH 1500)

The course is intended to give an overview of topics in finite mathematics together with their applications, and is taken primarily by students of the social sciences, communications, and liberal arts. Topics include linear equations, linear inequalities, financial math, sets, counting, permutations, combinations, an introduction to probability and statistics, matrices. Additional topics will include symbolic logic, linear models, linear programming, and the Simplex method.

Medical Math (MATH 1160)

This applied mathematics course provides a review for the student who needs to master the fundamental numerical operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. This course also assists the student in acquiring a better understanding of percent, ratio and proportion, and measurements. This course is designed to provide a foundation for enrollment into an health science program and improving proficiency in career preparation courses. An essential part of the course is utilizing the concepts to solve application problems.

Plane Trigonometry (MATH 1620)

The study of trigonometric functions. Topics include the laws of sine and cosine, the trigonometric functions and their graphs, inverse trigonometric functions, trigonometric identities and equations, and polar coordinate system. Trigonometry and trigonometric functions will be used to model and solve real world applications.

Applied Calculus (MATH 1630)

An introduction to differential and integral calculus designed for non-STEM majors. Topics will include limits, the derivative, applications of the derivative, antiderivatives, and the definite integral. Polynomial, rational, radical, exponential, and logarithmic functions will be studied.

Pre-calculus with Trigonometry (MATH 1650)

A combined course on: function properties and graphs; inverse functions; linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions with applications; systems of equations; trigonometric functions and graphs; inverse trigonometric functions; fundamental identities and angle formulas; solving equations, triangles with applications; polar coordinate system. Math 1650 is intended for students who must take Math 2000 for their major. It serves as a replacement for Math 1015 and Math 1620 for students who will take Math 2000.

Calculus I (MATH 2000)

Limits and continuity of functions; introduction of the derivative; techniques of differentiation; Chain rule; implicit differentiation; differentiation of transcendental and inverse functions; applications of differentiation: concavity; relative extrema; maximum and minimum values of a function; optimization; anti-differentiation; definite integrals; Fundamental Theorem of Calculus; areas; applications of definite integrals; work and volume.

Elementary Statistics (MATH 2410)

An introduction to statistical reasoning. Topics include graphical display of data, measures of central tendency and variability, sampling theory, the normal curve, standard scores, Student’s T, Chi Square, and correlation techniques.
