MATH 113 - Mathematical Problem Solving

Type of Course: Lecture, Workshop
Intended for students who will use mathematics in such subjects as management and the social sciences, but who are not necessarily planning to go on to calculus. MATH 113 cannot be used as a prerequisite for either calculus sequence, and does not satisfy any requirement of either the major or the minor in mathematics or computer science. Covers some precalculus topics (algebraic manipulations, functions and graphs, exponentials and logarithms), but major emphasis is on mathematical analysis of concrete situations (word problems, mathematical modeling, exponential growth, applications of linear systems, elementary probability).

Prerequisites: A suitable score on the mathematics placement test.

Instructor: Staff

When Offered: Offered every semester
