Description for MATH115: Designed primarily but not exclusively for students seeking a stronger foundation in algebra before taking MATH 129 or MATH 130. Topics include basic algebra concepts, linear equations and inequalities and inequalities, properties of functions, linear and quadratic functions, absolute value equations and inequalities, systems of equations.
Prerequisite: Appropriate scores on the Math Placement Test or completion of Math 114QR, Math 125 or MathSk 098 or 099.

Description for MATH125: This course is a concept-driven introduction to statistics and statistical reasoning. It covers descriptive statistics, including histograms, the normal curve, and linear correlation and regression; probability sufficient to enable development of inferential statistics; and topics in statistical inference. The latter will include sampling theory, confidence intervals and their interpretation, tests of hypotheses, and chi-square tests.
Prerequisite: MATH 114Q or 115 or 129 or 130 or 140 or appropriate scores on the Math Placement Test.
Description for MATH130: Preparation for first year calculus. Covers symmetry, graphs, functions, lines, parabolas and max-min problems, exponential and logarithm functions, exponential growth, and the trigonometric functions and their inverses. Note: No student will receive graduation credits for MATH 130 if it is taken after successful completion of any higher math course. Students who have successfully completed MATH 130 may not subsequently take MATH 129 for credit. Students may take MATH 130 after MATH 129 only with explicit permission of the department, and then only for two credits.
Prerequisite: appropriate scores on the Math Placement Test or MATH 115 with a grade of B or better in the previous semester. Note: Students with grades lower than B in the pre-requisite course will be dropped from the class.
Description for MATH134: A one-semester course in calculus, with particular emphasis on applications to economics and management. Topics covered include limits, continuity, derivatives, and integrals. Students may not receive graduation credit for both MATH 134 and MATH 135. Students may take MATH 140 after MATH 134, but only with the explicit permission of the department and then only for two credits.
Prerequisite: MATH 129 or 130 or appropriate scores on the Math Placement Test.
