MATH 150 - Pre-Calculus Mathematics


Credit Hours: 3
Lecture Hours: 3
Laboratory Hours: 0

Prerequisite(s): MATH 128  and MATH 138 , or Mathematics Course III

Restriction(s): None

Corequisite(s): None

This is an applications-oriented course in which students are exposed to a variety of techniques (e.g., numerical, geometric, and algebraic) for solving problems. The use of technology, specifically the TI- 83 graphing calculator and Macintosh Power PC, is an important part of the course. Topics studied are data analysis, mathematical modeling, and functions, including polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric.

Student Learning Outcomes of the Course: The general education requirement for mathematics is satisfied by MATH 150. To assess the general education mathematics requirements, when you have completed this course, you will be able to:

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