MAT 003 Precalculus
This course is intended solely for those students who wish to take calculus, but whose high school background is inadequate to do so immediately. Topics covered include review of algebra (solving equations and inequalities, simplification of algebraic expressions) and properties of elementary functions (polynomials, rational, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions) with special emphasis on graphing these functions. For students who desire a distribution credit in mathematics but do not wish to take calculus, Mathematics 107, 109, and 119 are recommended. Mathematics 003 can not be used for distribution.
Admission to Mathematics 003 is by permission of the department chair only.

MAT 107 Statistics: Concepts and Controversies
Introductory  The course introduces statistics as a liberal arts
discipline. It focuses on statistical ideas and their relevance to public

reliable data generation, data summarization, and the classical approach
to drawing conclusions from data (statistical inference). This course does
not count towards the major or minor in mathematics. Students who have
taken calculus are encouraged to take Mathematics 217 or Mathematics 227
instead of Mathematics 107.
