Concepts in Math and Quantitative Analysis (MAT-301)
Varies (self-study; self-paced).
June 2017 - Present.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: convert realistic situations into mathematical concepts so mathematical tools can be used to solve them; use Venn diagrams, graphs, charts and similar methods to represent, organize and analyze data; apply principles of logic to prove or disprove statements (both in text and in mathematical form) on the basis of other given statements; identify, manipulate and utilize mathematical expressions including rational, irrational and imaginary numbers, along with mathematical expressions such as absolute value, inequalities and radicals; use principles of algebra and geometry to identify variables and express algebraic expressions on graphs; determine the probability of a specified event or condition or series of events or conditions; and apply principles of statistics, such as averages, normal distributions and standard deviations to identify statistically significant data.
This course is designed to develop students’ mathematical thinking and reasoning skills though problem-solving. Instruction covers many of the tools in the mathematical toolbox, including concepts in data sets, number systems, algebra, geometry, logic, graphing, probability and statistics. Other topics include: basics of arithmetic, algebra and geometry and related relevant concepts. Prerequisites: College Algebra and College Geometry or demonstrable skills in those areas, such as superior scores on standardized tests in those areas.
In the upper division baccalaureate degree category, 3 semester hours in Math, Business, Finance, or as a general elective (6/17).
