# Mathematics (MATH) 0302 - 1000-level

**0302. Developmental Algebra. 3(3-0)
** The algebra skills necessary for success in college-level mathematics. Topics included real number operations, linear and quadratic equations, graphing linear and nonlinear equations and simplifying polynomial, rational and radical expressions. Course delivery mainly through mathematics learning software. Course does not count toward any degree. Placement is based on analysis of student ACT/SAT, TSI and/or placement test scores. Credit/NonCredit.

**1314. College Algebra. 3(3-0)**

College-level topics in algebra including functions, graphs, variation, piecewise defined functions, equations of lines, elementary curve fitting, quadratic equations and functions, systems of linear and nonlinear equations, composition of functions, inverse functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, and applications related to these topics.

Prerequisite: two years of high school algebra and/or appropriate scores on mathematics placement tests.

**1316. Trigonometry. 3(3-0)**

Fundamental notions and definitions, functions of angles, logarithms, circular measure, solution of triangles. Required of all engineering students.

Prerequisite: two years of high school algebra or MATH 1314 (MATH 1314 and MATH 1316 may be taken parallel.)

**1324. Mathematics for Business and Economics I. 3(3-0)**

A course designed for students in business administration. Selected topics from finite mathematics including: linear inequalities, vectors, matrices, linear programming, and probability.

Prerequisite: two years of high school algebra and/or appropriate scores on mathematics placement tests.

**1325. Mathematics for Business and Economics II. 3(3-0)**

Applications of the theory of extrema. Area under a curve and its applications. Introduction to statistical measures.

Prerequisite: MATH 1314 or MATH 1324.

**1334. Contemporary Mathematics. 3(3-0)**

An introduction to several contemporary applications of mathematics for the non-major. Emphasis is on the variety of problems which can be modeled and solved by analytic and quantitative means. Topics will vary, but may include such as: applications of graph theory to management problems; encoding and encrypting information; problems of social choice--fair division, voting systems, conflict; topics in geometry; and data analysis.

Prerequisite: appropriate scores on mathematics placement tests.

**1335. Contemporary Mathematics FOCUS. 3(3-1)**

Introduction to several contemporary applications of mathematics for the non-major. Emphasis is on the variety of problems which can be modeled and solved by analytic and quantitative means. Topics will vary, but may include such as: applications of graph theory to management problems; encoding and encrypting information; problems of social choice--fair division, voting systems, conflict, topics in geometry; and data analysis. Requires a one-hour noncredit laboratory, which focuses on more applications as well as mathematics study skills and success strategies. Prerequisite: appropriate scores on placement tests. Department permit required.

**1348. Analytic Geometry. 3(3-0)**

Equations and their graphs. Cartesian and polar coordinates, the straight line, circles and conic sections. Operations with vectors, the dot and cross product.

Prerequisites: MATH 1314 and MATH 1316.

**1350. Fundamentals of Mathematics I. 3(3-0)**

Problems from number theory, number systems, systems of operations and proportional reasoning. Requires approaching problems from multiple perspectives, drawing connections among those perspectives and strengthening flexibility and fluency in mathematical thinking and communicating. Not applicable for credit in the physical sciences or engineering.

Prerequisite: MATH 1314 or higher.

**1351. Fundamentals of Mathematics II. 3(3-0)**

Problems from probability, statistics, measurement, geometry and spatial thinking. Requires approaching problems from multiple perspectives, drawing connections among those perspectives and strengthening flexibility and fluency in mathematical thinking and communicating. Not applicable for credit in the physical sciences or engineering.

Prerequisite: MATH 1350.
