MTH010 Basic Algebra 3 Credits
This is a remedial course in algebra using basic algebraic operations and problem solving. It
is offered to students who did not place into a 100 level math class by taking the placement
test. It does not earn any credits and is a “C” to progress class (a grade of “C” or higher
is needed to register for a 100 level class). Topics such as algebraic operations, exponents,
expressions, linear equations and graphing are covered.

MTH101 College Business Mathematics 3 Credits
This course is designed to give the student an understanding and application of mathematic
concepts used in business activities such as: banking, payroll, buying and selling, interest
computations, taxes, depreciation, financial statements, and statistics. The student will review
basic math skills as well as gain an understanding of the mathematical knowledge and skills
needed for business.
Prerequisite: MTH010 or passing placement exam scores

MTH105 College Algebra 3 Credits
This course provides a solid foundation of algebraic functions, including the following topics:
equations, inequalities and problem solving, functions, and solving systems of equations.
Prerequisite: MTH010 or passing placement exam scores

MTH125 Quantitative Literacy 3 Credits
This course is designed to help students develop basic quantitative literacy skills that will be
helpful in future college classes and in life as an informed citizen and consumer. Students will
learn to critically evaluate quantitative claims and arguments using fundamental arithmetic
and algebraic methods.
Prerequisite: Either MTH010 completion with a grade of “C” or higher or score on the
placement test of 75 or higher or Chair’s approval.
MTH135 Selected Topics in Math I 3 Credits
This course provides students an opportunity to develop an individualized study plan on a
specific theme, topic, or innovative area of their interest within the content area of math.
With guidance from a faculty sponsor, the student will develop a course outline and
completion plan.
Prerequisite: Chair approval

MTH200 Statistics 3 Credits
This course is designed to develop a familiarity with the use of statistics for making business
decisions. Topics covered include frequency distributions, measures of central tendency,
probability, various distributions, statistical decision-making, testing hypotheses.
Prerequisite: MTH101, MTH105, MTH125 or MTH150

MTH235 Selected Topics in Math II 3 Credits
This course provides students an opportunity to develop an individualized study plan on a
specific theme, topic, or innovative area of their interest within the content area of math at
a more advanced level that MTH135. With guidance from a faculty sponsor, the student will
develop a course outline and completion plan.
Prerequisite: Chair approval

MTH245 Pre-Calculus with Trigonometry 3 Credits
This course is a conceptual course with problem-solving rather than mathematical theory
with emphasis on the meaningful development toward the application of mathematics
to the solutions of realistic problems. Topics include graphs and functions, exponential
and logarithmic systems, trigonometric functions, trigonometric identities and conditional
equations, systems of equations and inequalities, matrices and determinants, sequences and
series, and basic analytic geometry.
Prerequisite: MTH105

MTH315 Calculus for Business and Social Sciences 3 Credits
This course introduces the concept of the derivative, the integral and the notion of limit. Basic
properties of exponential and logarithmic functions are reviewed as we apply the derivative to
study population growth, radioactive decay and other real world applications.
Prerequisite: MTH245

MTH330 Statistics II 3 Credits
This course will continue the study of statistics with one and two sample tests of hypothesis.
It will focus on tests of independence, analysis of variance, simple and multiple regression,
correlation analysis and non-parametric statistics.
Prerequisites: MTH200
