Mathematical Problem Solving – MTH 112
Develops students problem-solving skills by teaching different problem-solving strategies, and allowing students the opportunity to develop and reflect on their own problem-solving and critical thinking skills. The students will apply these strategies to real world scenarios (3 credits).
Probability – MTH 125
Introductory probability and counting theory. Theoretical and empirical probabilities and counting techniques are explored in relation to business, social sciences, and games, using techniques such as Venn diagrams, trees, and two-way charts. Discrete and continuous probability distributions, including the Normal probability distribution, are also investigated. This course stresses problem-solving strategies, critical thinking, and communication. It is intended to help students think logically about numerical data and their relationships in preparation for a course in statistics. (3 credits).
Calculus I – MTH 135
This course offers an introduction to differential and integral calculus of the single variable. The course includes the study of limits and continuity, the mean value theorem, techniques of differentiation including the chain rule, optimization, and the fundamental theorem of calculus, antiderivatives and introductory integrals and their applications. Properties of transcendental functions (exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric) are explored using calculus. A knowledge of algebra and trigonometry is assumed. (3 credits).
Applied Statistics – MTH 126
Introduces the student to applied statistical methods used in industry and scientific applications. Emphasis will be on the practical aspects of statistics as students use descriptive and inferential statistics to analyze real data in applications of hypothesis testing, ANOVA, and linear regression and correlation. A TI 82 or 83 calculator is required. (3 credits).
