Mathematics Course Information

 

MAH 101 Introductory Mathematics I                                   3 Prerequisite: Satisfactory placement score

This course is a comprehensive review of arith­metic with basic algebra designed to meet the needs of certificate and diploma programs. Topics include business and industry related arithmetic and geometric skills used in measurement, ratio and proportion, exponents and roots, applications of percent, linear equations, formulas, and statis­tics. Upon completion, students should be able to solve practical problems in their specific occupa­tional areas of study.

 

MTH 080 Mathematics Laboratory

(Institutional Credit only)                                            3 This course is designed to offer supplemental help to students in mathematics. Students work in a laboratory situation under qualified instructors. This course may be repeated as needed. Emphasis is on arithmetic and algebra as determined by the individual need of the students.

 

MTH 090 Basic Mathematics

(Institutional Credit only)                                           3 This is a developmental course reviewing arith­metical principles and computations designed to help the students mathematical proficiency in selected curriculum entrance.

 

MTH 098 Elementary Algebra

(Institutional Credit only)                                           3 Prerequisite: MTH 090 or appropriate mathemat­ics placement score

This course is a review of the fundamental arith­metic and algebra operations. The topics include the numbers of ordinary arithmetic and their prop­erties; integers and rational numbers; the solving of equations; polynomials and factoring; and an introduction of systems of equations and graphs.

 

MTH 100 Intermediate College Algebra                             3 Prerequisite: MTH 098 or appropriate mathemat­ics placement score

This course provides a study of algebraic techniques such as linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations, systems of equations, and operations with exponents and radicals. Functions and relations are introduced and graphed with special emphasis on linear and quadratic functions. This course does not apply toward the general core requirements for mathematics

.

MTH 104 Plane Trigonometry                                           

3 Prerequisite: MTH 100

This course emphasizes such topics as the solution of triangles, vectors, geometric concepts and com­plex numbers.

 

MTH 110 Finite Mathematics                                        3 Prerequisite: All core mathematics courses in Alabama must have as a minimum prerequisite high school Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II with an appropriate mathematics placement score. An alternative to this is that the student should successfully pass with a C or higher Intermediate College Algebra

 

 

This course is intended to give an overview of top­ics in finite mathematics together with their appli­cations, and is taken primarily by students who are not majoring in science, engineering, commerce, or mathematics (i.e., students who are not required to take Calculus). This course will draw on and significantly enhance the students arithmetic and algebraic skills. The course includes sets, counting, permutations, combinations, basic probability (including Bayes Theorem), and introduction to statistics (including work with Binomial Distributions and Normal Distributions), matrices and their applications to Markov chains and deci­sion theory. Additional topics may include sym­bolic logic, linear models, linear programming, the simplex method and applications.

 

 

MTH 112 Precalculus Algebra                           3 Prerequisite: A minimum prerequisite of high school Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II with an appropriate mathematics placement score. An alternative to this is that the student should successfully pass with a C or higher Intermediate College Algebra This course emphasizes the algebra of functions - including polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions. The course also covers sys­tems of equations and inequalities, quadratic inequalities and the binomial theorem. Additional topics may include matrices, Cramers rule, and mathematical induction.

 

MTH 113 Precalculus Trigonometry                      3 Prerequisite:  A minimum prerequisite of high school Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II with an appropriate mathematics placement score.  An alternative to this is that the student should successfully pass with a C or higher MTH 112.          

 

This course includes the study of trigonometric (circular functions) and inverse trigonometric functions, and includes extensive work with trigonometric identities and trigonometric equa­tions. The course also covers vectors, complex numbers, DeMoiverss Theorem, and polar coordi­nates. Additional topics may include conic sec­tions, sequences, and using matrices to solve linear systems.

 

MTH 116 Mathematical Applications                                            3 Prerequisite: MTH 090 or appropriate mathemat­ics placement score

This course provides practical applications of mathematics and includes selected topics from consumer math and algebra. Some types included are integers, percent, interest, ratio and proportion, metric system, probability, linear equations, and problem solving.

 

MTH 117 College Mathematics with

Applications                                                                                      3 Prerequisite: MTH 098 or appropriate placement score.

This is an applied course designed to meet mathe­matics requirements for some students in certificate and two-year terminal programs. Emphasis is placed on percent, interest, proportions, functions, graphing, systems of equations, logarithmic and exponential functions, quadratics. and lineal pro­gramming as used to solve applied problems in selected programs of study. This course does not meet the general core requirement for mathematics

 

MTH 125 Calculus I

4 Prerequisite: A minimum prerequisite of high school Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II with an appropriate mathematics placement score is required. An alternative to this isthat the student should successfullyass with a C or higher MTH 113 This is the first of three courses in the basic calcu­lus sequence taken primarily by students in sci­ence, engineering, and mathematics. Topics include the limit of a function; the derivative of algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, and loga­rithmic functions; and the definite integral and its basic applications of area problems. Applications of the derivative are covered in detail, including approximations of error using differentials, maxi-mum and minimum problems, and curve sketch­ing using calculus.

 

MTH 126 Calculus II                                4            Prerequisite: A minimum prerequisite of high

school Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II with an appropriate

mathematics placement score is

required. An alternative to this is

that the student should successfully

pass with a C or higher MTH 125 This is the second of three courses in the basic cal­culus sequence. Topics include vectors in the plane and in space, lines and planes in space, applications of integration (such as volume, arc length, work and average value), techniques of integration, infinite series, polar coordinates, and parametric equations.
