Laboratory Hours: 0

Prerequisite(s): MATH 128  or two years of high school mathematics

Restriction(s): None

Corequisite(s): None

This is an application-oriented course covering the non-calculus portions of mathematics needed by students majoring in business, management, economics, or the life or social sciences. Students learn about matrices and systems of equations and apply them to regression analysis, linear programming, input-output analysis, Markov processes, and game theory.

Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
  1. Students will demonstrate the ability to interpret and draw inferences from mathematical models such as formulas, graphs, tables, and schematics.
  2. Students will demonstrate the ability to represent mathematical information symbolically, visually, numerically and verbally.
  3. Students will demonstrate the ability to employ quantitative methods such as, arithmetic, algebra, geometry, or statistics to solve problems.
  4. Students will demonstrate the ability to estimate and check mathematical results for reasonableness.
  5. Students will demonstrate the ability to recognize the limits of mathematical and statistical methods.
