(3) Credit Hours
Prerequisite: Appropriate MPI or Accuplacer scores of 37 and above on the ACCUPLACER Algebra Test

After successfully completing this course, students will be able to: 1. Interpret and use precise mathematical language appropriately, including (but not limited to) the areas of set theory, logic, probability and statistics. 2. Use appropriate technology in the evaluation, analysis, and synthesis of information in problem-solving situations. 3. Use logical connectors appropriately to form compound statements and apply them to ap0plications such as searching databases. 4. Read, interpret, and present data in multiple representations, especially graphical and numerical. 5. Create and analyze combinatorial arguments using tools such as permutations and combinations. Note: This course is an alternative in Area A of the Core curriculum and is not intended to supply algebraic background for students who intend to take Pre-Calculus or the Calculus sequences for mathematics and science majors.
