Development of the number systems — whole numbers through real numbers. Also problem solving strategies, functions, elementary logic, and set theory are included.

MATH 102: Fundamental Mathematical Concepts II. 3 hours.
An introduction to geometric concepts, measurement, probability, statistics, and basic computer concepts.

MATH 109: College Algebra. 3 hours.
A study of functions and graphs, solutions of equations and inequalities and the properties of polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Prerequisite: One year of high school algebra and one year of high school geometry.

MATH 110: Trigonometry. 3 hours.
The study of trigonometric, logarithmic, and exponential functions and their applications. Prerequisite: Two years of high school algebra and one year of high school geometry.

MATH 201: Mathematics for Social Sciences. 3 hours.
Topics from finite mathematics and calculus with applications in the social sciences. Prerequisite: MATH 109.

MATH 227: Introduction to Statistics. 3 hours.
A course to acquaint the student with the basic ideas and language of statistics including such topics as: descriptive statistics; correlation and regression, basic experimental design, elementary probability, binomial and normal distributions, estimation, and tests of hypotheses and analysis of variance. Prerequisite: One year of high school Algebra.

MATH 231: Calculus I. 4 hours.
A study of the fundamental principles of analytic geometry and calculus with emphasis on analysis. Prerequisite: Two years of high school Algebra and one semester of high school Trigonometry.

MATH 232: Calculus II. 4 hours.
