  # Course Descriptions for Mathematics

Credit cannot be earned in mathematics courses that are prerequisites for courses already
completed.

150 Introductory Algebra (4)
A study of the basic concepts of algebra such as first-degree equations, factoring, rational
expressions , graphing, quadratic equations, exponents and radicals . May not be used to satisfy
general curriculum distribution requirements of the Baccalaureate Experience. (*fall and spring
semesters)

153 College Geometry (2)
A study of geometric problem-solving and formal synthetic Euclidean geometry. Students
study properties of basic geometric figures, learn to verify them using formal proofs, and
use results to solve applied problems. Students also are exposed to the axiomatic method of
synthetic Euclidean geometry, learning how to verify results and then apply them to other
proofs and applied problems. Required for education majors; may be taken as an elective by
other majors. May not be used to satisfy General Curriculum Requirements.

155 Finite Mathematics for Liberal Arts (4)
Prerequisite: MAT 150 or equivalent. Appropriate as a general curriculum distribution
requirement for liberal arts students. Topics include graph theory, planning and scheduling,
data collection, descriptive statistics, social choices and voting, the problem of fair division,
and the study of size and shape. (*fall and spring semesters)

160 College Algebra (4)
Prerequisites: MAT 150 or equivalent . Topics include rational exponents , equations and
inequalities, functions and their operations , polynomials , rational functions, and systems of
equations, inequalities and matrices . (*fall and spring semesters)

170 Precalculus (4)
Prerequisite: MAT 160 or equivalent. Covers exponential and logarithmic functions , applications
to growth and decay problems, trigonometry and analytic geometry with emphasis
on the use of graphing calculators . (*fall and spring semesters)

201 Introduction to Statistics (4)
Prerequisite: MAT 155 or equivalent (or higher). An introduction to descriptive and inferential
statistics, with applications in various disciplines using statistical computer software.
(*fall and spring semesters)

This course is designed to provide students with the fundamental components of differential
and integral calculus, with a particular emphasis on those aspects of calculus that have
applications to business. The course covers exponential and logarithmic functions, limits,
differentiation and differentiation techniques, applications of the derivative (e.g. marginal
coast, marginal revenue, rate of growth), anti-derivatives, the integral as an area, functions of
several variables , and partial derivatives.

260 Calculus I (4)
Prerequisite: MAT 170 or equivalent. Covers limits, continuity, differentiation and its applications,
integration, and the calculus of logarithmic, exponential, and trigonometric functions
with emphasis on the use of graphing calculators. (*fall and spring semesters)

Prerequisite: MAT 261. Covers proof techniques and their applications to various branches
of mathematics, basic set theory, properties of number systems, and basic history of mathematics.
(*spring semester)

300 Differential Equations (4)
Prerequisite: MAT 262. An introductory course in ordinary differential equations with
applications. (*once every two years)

301 Discrete Mathematics (4)
Prerequisite: MAT 261. Covers sets, induction, algorithms, recursion, matrices, relations,

every two years)

490 Senior Seminar (1)
Prerequisite: senior standing in mathematics or mathematical programming. An in-depth
study of a topic in mathematics or mathematical programming. Requires consultation with a
faculty member, personal research, library research and an oral presentation. (*fall and spring
semesters)
