Math courses offered

MTH 11700 Mathematics / Elementary Teachers I
A Mathematical course designed for prospective elementary teachers and for non-mathematics majors in the liberal arts
curriculum. The course covers the modern concepts of mathematics taught in grades K-8. It places emphasis on set
theory, problem-solving, numeration systems, operations on natural numbers and rational numbers, elementary number
theory, and exercises using manipulatives. Prerequisite: ENG-10303. Corequisite: MTH12000.

MTH 12000 Intermediate Algebra
This course includes the study of the properties of real numbers, basic concepts of algebraic operations, solving and
graphing linear and nonlinear functions, systems of equations, complex numbers, quadratic functions, factoring, rational
expressions, and basic interpretations of tables and graphs of data. A graphing calculator is required. Prerequisite:
requisite COMPASS test scores or MTH-10100.

MTH 13000 College Algebra
This is a one semester course designed to prepare students for the study of calculus. The topics to be covered include
review of the fundamentals of algebra, relations, functions, solutions, of first- and second degree equations and
inequalities, systems of equations, determinants, binomial theorem, mathematical induction, polynomial functions and
theory of equations, analytic geometry and conic sections, geometric and arithmetical sequences and series, and
miscellaneous topics. Calculators will be used for selected topics. Prerequisite: MTH-12000 or requisite COMPASS test

MTH 14000 Trigonometry
This course includes the study of functions and their graphs, trigonometric functions, analytic trigonometry, applications
of trigonometric functions, parametric and polar functions, vectors, and analytic geometry. Prerequisite: MTH-12000.

MTH 20600 Application in Statistics
This is an introductory course in statistics for any field in which the collection, analysis, interpretation, and presentation
of numerical data are important. Topics include organization of data, types of distributions (binomial, normal, student t,
chi-square), sampling, testing of hypotheses, confidence intervals, correlation, and regression. Additionally, the students
will choose a project that will allow them to gain experience and demonstrate understanding of some of the statistical
techniques or methods. A calculator is required. Computer software will be utilized. Prerequisite: MTH-12000 or higher.

MTH 21700 Mathematics/Elementary Teachers II
The second mathematical course designed for prospective elementary teachers and for non-math majors in the liberal arts
curriculum. The course covers Decimals, percent, ratio/proportions, geometry (concepts and measurement), probability,
statistics, introduction to Algebra, and exercises using manipulatives. Prerequisites: ENG-10303 and MTH-12000.

MTH 22002 Calculus I
This is the first of a three-semester sequential course in analytic geometry and calculus. Topics include functions, limits,
continuity, derivatives, integrals, and their applications. A graphing calculator is required. Prerequisite: MTH-13000 and
MTH-14000; or requisite COMPASS test scores.

MTH 22102 Calculus II
This course is a continuation of MTH-22002. Topics include applications of integration, techniques of integration,
L’Hopital’s Rule, improper integrals, infinite series, conic section, plane curves, parametric equations, and polar
coordinates. A graphing calculator is required. Prerequisite: MTH- 22002.

MTH 22202 Calculus III
This course is a continuation of MTH-22102. Topics include vector-valued functions, functions of several variables,
multiple integration, and vector analysis. A graphing calculator is required. Prerequisite: MTH-22102. (Math Credit)

MTH 23000 Differential Equations
This course includes the study of exact solutions of common types of first-order ordinary differential equations, linear
equations of higher order, power series solutions, Laplace transforms, linear systems including matrix methods, graphical
and numerical techniques, and applications of differential equations. Prerequisite: MTH-22102.
