MTH-099 | Introduction to Algebra | 4 credits
Students will review computations with whole numbers, integers and rational numbers; simplifying algebraic expressions; solve and graphing linear equations and inequalities; one variable practical applications; basic geometric concepts to include perimeter and area of basic figures; systems of linear equations; computations with polynomials, rational expressions and radicals. This course is offered without elective credit as a service to the student who needs to study basic mathematical concepts as a preparation for MTH 150. This course should not be taken by a student who has had Algebra I or Algebra II on the secondary level. Credits may not be applied toward graduation requirements.

MTH-115 | Geometry I | 1 credit
This course provides an introduction to Euclidean and computational geometry. This course will include areas, volumes and surface areas, angles, constructions, deductive proofs and elementary trigonometry.

MTH-116 | Geometry II | 1 credit
This course provides an introduction to Euclidean and computational geometry. The course will include geometric figures, constructions and deductive proofs.

MTH-125 | Elementary Applications in Mathematics | 3 credits
This course includes statistics, probability, logic, personal finance, algebra and elementary topics in mathematics.

MTH-150 | College Algebra | 4 credits
This course includes first degree equations and inequalities in one variable; irrational and complex numbers; quadratic equations and inequalities; functions and graphs; exponential, logarithmic and special functions; systems of equations; sequences and series.

MTH-180 | Precalculus | 4 credits
This course includes basics of college algebra, trigonometry and analytic geometry. This course is designed for a student who has completed two years of high school algebra but has not had trigonometry and/or analytic geometry.
Prerequisite: Take MTH-150

MTH-205 | Discrete Mathematics | 3 credits
This course introduces mathematical structures and their applications to computer science. Topics include: counting techniques, mathematical logic, set theory, Boolean algebra, graph theory and the application of algebraic structures to computer design.
Prerequisite: Take MTH-150

MTH-209 | Calculus I | 4 credits
This course is on an elementary introduction to most of the basic material of calculus: functions and limits, derivatives, direction fields, antiderivatives, trigonometric functions, integrals and areas of regions in the plane. The course is designed for the student who needs the basic topics for physics, chemistry, biology, business and engineering courses.
Prerequisite: Take MTH-180
