Mathematics Course Sequence

A student who qualifies for a particular mathematics course is eligible for any course lower in sequence. If the student has not taken a mathematics course during the previous two years, it is strongly recommended that the student enroll in a course below the one for which he or she would normally be eligible. Prerequisites are listed in the individual course descriptions. A grade of C or higher is required for all prerequisite courses. Extra supplies may be required in all Mathematics classes except MATH 811.

Course Description

This accelerated course prepares students for transfer-level Statistics. It covers core concepts from elementary algebra, intermediate algebra, and descriptive statistics. Topics include ratios, rates, and proportional reasoning; arithmetic reasoning using fractions, decimals and percents; evaluating expressions, solving equations, analyzing algebraic forms to understand statistical measures; use of linear, quadratic, absolute value, exponential, and logarithmic functions to model bivariate data; graphical and numerical descriptive statistics for quantitative and categorical data. This course is designed for students who intend to take transfer level statistics and no other transfer level mathematics, physics or chemistry. Note: This course is NOT intended for students who plan to take courses in science, computer information science, engineering, math, as well as business and other non-STEM majors. Please see your counselor.
