This is an information sheet only, not the course syllabus.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Designed to fulfill general education requirements and not designed as a prerequisite for any other college mathematics course. Focuses on mathematical reasoning and the solving of real-life problems, rather than routine skills. Logic and set theory are studied. Two other topics from the following list are to be studied in depth: counting techniques and probability, game theory, geometry, graph theory, statistics, and mathematics of finance. The regular use of calculators and/or computers are emphasized. Prerequisite: Demonstrated geometry competency (level 2), and Mathematics 0482 (or college equivalent) with a grade of "C" or better or a qualifying score on the mathematics placement test or a qualifying A.C.T. math score (3 lecture hours)
