MAT 106 Intro to Mathematical Modeling 5 qh

This course is designed as an alternative to college algebra for those students who will not require calculus in their future study. This course is an introduction to mathematical modeling using graphical, numerical, symbolic, and verbal techniques to describe and explore real-world phenomena. Completion of this course with a grade of “C” or better will establish math competency, which is required for graduation. Prerequisite: Satisfactory score in Math Placement Exam or completion of MAT 099 with a grade of “C” or better. A student who successfully completes MAT 109 for the Essential Skills requirement cannot use MAT 106 to satisfy the Math/Science elective.

MAT 109 College Algebra 5 qh

A college algebra course with applications. Topics include the study of linear, quadratic, exponential and logarithmic functions, the real number axioms, equations, inequalities and systems of equations. Completion of this course with a grade of a “C” or better will establish math competency, which is required for graduation. Prerequisite: Satisfactory score in Math Placement Exam or completion of MAT 099 with a grade of “C” or better. A student who successfully completes MAT 106 for the Essential Skills requirement cannot use MAT 109 to satisfy the Math/Science elective.

MAT 110 Plane Trigonometry 5 qh

The study of basic trigonometric functions, graphs of trigonometric functions, identities, right triangles, the law of sines, the law of cosines, oblique triangles and their areas. Prerequisite: By placement.

MAT 111 Survey of Calculus 5 qh

A brief survey of the key elements of elementary calculus. Emphasis on the application of calculus to problems in management and economics. Prerequisite: By placement.

MAT 112 Precalculus 5 qh

The study of polynomials, exponential and logarithmic functions, conic sections, and an introduction to trigonometric functions. The focus of this course is on an in-depth study of topics in algebra which are essential for an understanding of calculus. Students with strong backgrounds in mathematics who are planning to major in areas of science or technology should take MAT 112 instead of MAT 109. Prerequisite: By placement.

MAT 200 Applied General Probability & Statistics 5 qh

An overview of the ideas and concepts that are basic to modern statistics. Topics include descriptive statistics, probability, estimation, hypothesis testing, and linear regression. Students will be exposed to applications from `a variety of fields. Prerequisite: MAT 106 or MAT 109 or permission of instructor.
