Basic Concepts of Mathematics (MAT 101)


Self-study, self-paced.

Various; distance learning format.

October 2018 - Present. 

Instructional delivery format: 
Proficiency exam
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the learning experience, students will be able to: analyze, represent, and solve elementary problems in logic, set theory, and probability; recognize and apply the characteristics of a mathematical structure; develop the ability to analyze, interpret, and apply quantitative information; accurately translate and solve descriptive problems into mathematical formulas; apply new knowledge to draw conclusions, solve problems, explain, decide, and predict.


The course is designed to help students make the transition from calculus courses to the more theoretical junior-senior level mathematics courses. The goal of this course is to help students learn the language of rigorous mathematics, as structured by definitions, axioms, and theorems. Students will be trained to read, understand, devise and communicate proofs of mathematical statements. A number of proof techniques (contrapositive, contradiction, and induction) will be emphasized.

Credit recommendation: 

In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours in Math or as a general elective (10/20).
