MTH140: Precalculus Algebra 3-0-3
Precalculus Algebra course material includes linear functions and equations; analysis of graphs and functions, including piecewise; absolute value equations and inequalities; quadratic and polynomial functions; rational, power and root functions; inverse, exponential and logarithmic functions; systems of equations and matrices. Prerequisite: Prerequisite: Eligible placement score or grade of “C” or higher in MTH100. (FA, SP, SU)
MTH 141: Contemporary College Mathematics 3-0-3
This course contains selected topics from number theories, algebra, geometry, probability, and statistics with emphasis on applications of mathematics. (IN)
MTH 142: Quantitative Reasoning 3-0-3
This course is designed to fulfill general education requirements for students pursuing non-STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) degrees and career paths. Topics include: problem solving, units of measure, probability and statistics, linear and exponential models, logic and sets. Emphasis is placed on critical thinking and improving students’ ability to apply mathematics. Prerequisite: Eligible placement score, grade of “C” or higher in MTH100, or successful completion of the appropriate module in the Computer Assisted Pre-Algebra sequence. Pre-requisite: Eligible placement score, grade of “C” or higher in MTH100, or successful completion of the appropriate module in the Computer Assisted Pre-Algebra sequence.
MTH150: Precalculus 5-0-5
This course is a unified study of College Algebra and Trigonometry designed to prepare students for Calculus. The course will focus on algebraic, trigonometric, logarithmic and exponential functions. Prerequisite: Eligible placement score, grade of “C” or higher in MTH020 or MTH100. (FA, SP, SU)
*MTH160: Elementary Statistics 3-0-3
Elementary Statistics includes descriptive statistics, statistical design, correlation and regression, and elementary probability. Statistical inferences will include one- and two-sample confidence intervals and hypotheses tests. Prerequisite: Eligible placement score or MTH100.
MTH 201: Analytic Geometry and Calculus I 5-0-5
Students are introduced to plane analytic geometry, including limits, continuity, derivative for functions of a single variable, differentials, indefinite and definite integrals, and applications of the derivative and integral. (FA, SP)
Math Pathways Information
*Students planning to transfer to the University of Missouri-Columbia will not be able to use MTH160 – Elementary Statistics as a pathway course. These students will need to take MTH140 – College Algebra for fall 2017. See your advisor for additional information.
