# MATH 1101* - Introduction to Mathematical Modeling

(3) Credit Hours
Prerequisite: HSGPA < 3.0 or ACT MATH <17 or SAT MATH <400 or ACCM <67 or ACCNGM<266 AND HSGPA 3.1 or ACT ENGL >=17 or SAT Cr. Reading >=430 or (ACCR >=61 and ACCW >=4) or (ACCNGR>=237 and ACCW>=4) or ENGL 1101  or ENGL 1101* or ENGL 1101^ or ENGL 1101H
Co-requisite: MATH 0998A
This course is an introduction to mathematical modeling using graphical, numerical, symbolic, and verbal techniques to describe and explore real-world data and phenomena. Emphasis is on the use of elementary functions to investigate and analyze applied problems and questions, supported by the use of appropriate technology, and on effective communication of quantitative concepts and results.

Students who have successfully completed this course will: 1) Model situations from a variety of settings in mathematical forms by extracting quantitative data from a given situation, translating the data into information in various modes, evaluating the information , abstracting essential information, making logical deductions, and arriving at reasonable conclusions;  2) Manipulate mathematical information, concepts, and thoughts in verbal, numeric, graphical and symbolic form while solving a variety of problems; 3) Solve multiple-step problems through different (inductive, deductive and symbolic ) modes of reasoning;  4) Express mathematical information , concepts, and thoughts in verbal, numeric, graphical and symbolic form while solving a variety of problems; 5) Shift among the verbal, numeric, graphical and symbolic modes of considering relationships; 6) Use appropriate technology in the evaluation, analysis, and synthesis of information in problem-solving situations.
