This course is designed for college bound seniors who wish to increase their math knowledge, or wish to revisit and retain their skills in Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra ii, and Pre-Calc in order to be prepared for college placement tests. Students will accomplish the objectives of Pre-Algebra, Coordinate Geometry, Plane Geometry, and Trigonometry, through the application of specific concepts in realistic and relevant situations, evaluation, and discovery methods, and developing personal learning strategies.
This course is the culmination in the process of acquiring the fundamental skills of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. Great emphasis is placed on word problems and thought processes. This is an excellent comprehensive pre-calculus class for any student, especially those interested in some math emphasis in college.
Math 1200 College Algebra
A study of functions represented numerically, graphically and symbolically. Students learn the basic properties of linear, polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic and trigonometric functions. Topics also include conditionally defined functions and operations on functions. Students learn to use functions and their graphs as tools for modeling.
Math 1500 Statistics
Introduction to the vocabulary, concepts, and presentation of statistics as applied to business, education, and science. Topics include: exploring data and describing patterns, sampling and experimentation, planning and conducting a study, normal and sampling distributions, regression analysis, and statistical inference. The course will implement the use of technology as a catalyst for critical thinking.
Math 2110 Calculus I
This is the first course in the calculus sequence. The main topics are functions, graphs, limits, the derivative and applications of the derivative, properties, interpretations, and applications of the definite integral, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, basic techniques of antidifferentiation.
