Undergraduate Lower-Division Courses

Fractal Blue

An in-depth study of algebraic equations and inequalities. Comprehension of the underlying algebraic structure will be stressed as well as appropriate algebraic skills. The study will include polynomials, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions as well as systems of equations/inequalities. This course is one of the means to satisfy the the LAS and Compass Curriculum Qualitative and Quantitative Reasoning requirements. Prer., MATH 99 with a grade of "C" or better, or pass the Math Placement Test for MATH 1040. *** See Mathematics Department prerequisite policy. *** GT-MA1.

See MATH 1350 for calculus topics covered. Algebraic and elementary function topics are covered throughout, as needed. MATH 1310 and 1320 together are equivalent to MATH 1350. The sequence MATH 1310 - 1320 is designed for students whose manipulative skills in the techniques of high school algebra and precalculus may be inadequate for MATH 1350. Credit not granted for both this course and MATH 1350. This course is one of the means to satisfy the the LAS and Compass Curriculum Qualitative and Quantitative Reasoning requirements. Prer., MATH 1050 with a grade of "C" or better, or pass the Math Placement Test for MATH 1350.

  • 3 Credits

Continuation of MATH 1310. See MATH 1350 for calculus topics covered. Algebraic and trigonometric topics are studied throughout, as needed. Credit not granted for both this course and MATH 1350. Prer., MATH 1310, the equivalents of MATH 1040(College Algebra) and MATH 1050 (Elementary Functions for Calculus) or score 20 or more on the Calculus Readiness exam. Most students with 4 years of high school mathematics (Algebra I or higher) will qualify.

  • 3 Credits

A systematic introduction to calculus concepts useful in the life sciences, such as rates of change, limits, differentiation and integration, with emphasis on applications in the life sciences and the areas connected to modeling biological processes, such as differential equations and dynamical systems. Students may not take MATH 1330 and MATH 1350 and receive credit for both. Approved for Compass Curriculum requirement: Explore-Physical and Natural World. Prer., MATH 1050 with a grade of “C” or better, or pass the Math Placement Test for MATH 1350.
