Course Listing For MA Courses
MA 100 Introduction to Algebra
Development of mathematics skills needed for practical problem solving important in our society today. Students also have the opportunity to acquire and demonstrate skills needed for follow-on courses in algebra or descriptive statistics. Topics include: arithmetic and problem solving, basic units of measure, geometric applications and elements of algebra. MA 100 does not apply to General Education Core Curriculum requirement for the major, but does apply to minimum graduation requirements.
MA 101 Intermediate Algebra
Development of basic algebraic skills. Includes the real number system; operations for polynomials and rational expressions; solutions and applications of linear and quadratic equations; and the solution of inequalities, systems of linear equations and radical equations. Prerequisite: MA 099 or MA 100, or satisfy MPE
MA 102 College Algebra
Expansion and follow-up of intermediate algebra including higher order polynomials and nonlinear inequalities, and use of matrices and determinants to solve systems of equations. Introduction to function, inverse function, theory of equations and exponential and logarithmic functions. Prerequisite: MA 101 or satisfy score on mathematics placement exam (MPE)
MA 200 Calculus for Management, Social, and Life Sciences
Differential and integral calculus and application to solutions of real problems involving rate of change, optimization, revenue, cost, marginal analysis, demand and profit functions, and economic growth rate. Application of calculus in social and life sciences includes population growth, learning curves, work curves, marginal utilities, bacterial growth, and the spread of epidemics. Prerequisite: MA 102
MA 240 Applied Statistics
