Students will learn the concepts and skills required to locate and manage accurate and authoritative information, fulfilling academic, professional, and personal demands. Critical thinking is reinforced through hands-on applications to develop competency and to build an awareness of the broader issues emerging in the digital landscape. Students will practice techniques to adapt to rapidly changing technology, and to become discriminating users of information in multiple formats and subject areas.
The following topics are covered in this first course in algebra: signed numbers, properties of real numbers, operations with polynomials, introduction to exponents, first degree equations and inequalities, introduction to absolute value, word problems, and graphing. Students may not use this course to satisfy mathematics requirements or mathematics electives in a program unless specifically approved by the Department of Mathematics and the department offering that program. The course satisfies an open elective at SUNY Ulster, but may not transfer to other institutions. Prerequisite: MAT 091 with a grade of C or better or by Entering Student Assessment.
Extending the skills covered in MAT 098, students learn factoring, algebraic fractions, exponents, roots, radicals, and quadratic functions. Students may not use this course to satisfy mathematics requirements or mathematics electives in a program unless specifically approved by the Department of Mathematics and the department offering that program. The course satisfies an open elective at SUNY Ulster, but may not transfer to other institutions. Prerequisite: MAT 098 with a grade of C or better or equivalent course in elementary algebra or by Entering Student Assessment.
Topics in this course include complex numbers; linear and quadratic equations; absolute value and polynomial inequalities; coordinate geometry of the line and circle; linear and polynomial functions; techniques of graphing; exponential functions; and an introduction to logarithms. A scientific hand-held calculator is required. Prerequisite: MAT 100 with a grade of C or better, high school equivalent (see Guidelines for Mathematics Placement, p. 178), or by Entering Student Assessment. This course should not be taken by students who plan to take MAT 160.
Topics in mathematics preparatory to MAT 160 are covered in this course. Students study linear and quadratic equations; absolute value and polynomial inequalities; coordinate geometry of the line and circle; linear and polynomial functions; techniques of graphing; exponential functions; logarithms; right triangle trigonometry; trigonometric functions of any angle; and fundamental trigonometric identities. A scientific hand-held calculator is required. Prerequisite: MAT 100 with a grade of C or better, high school equivalent (see Guidelines for Mathematics Placement), or by Entering Student Assessment.
Topics in mathematics preparatory to MAT 170 are covered in this course. Students study functions (polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric), inverse functions, and conic sections. A TI-83 or TI-84 graphing calculator is required. Prerequisite: MAT 115 with a grade of C or better, high school equivalent (see Guidelines for Mathematics Placement), or by Entering Student Assessment.
Survey of functions; limits; the first and second derivative; definite integrals; differentiation of polynomial, exponential, and trigonometric functions; curve sketching; and other applications of the derivative are covered in this course. This is the first of a three-course sequence dealing with Calculus. A TI-83 or TI-84 graphing calculator is required. Prerequisite: MAT 160 with a grade of C or better or high school equivalent (see Guidelines for Mathematics Placement).
The following topics are covered in this non calculus based course: the organization of data, central tendency and dispersion, probability, binomial and normal distribution, hypothesis testing, correlation, regression, and the Chi-square distribution. A scientific hand-held calculator is required. Prerequisite: College-level General Education mathematics course with a grade of C or better, or high school equivalent.
This course prepares the student for dosage calculations used in the administration of medications. Beginning level students acquire knowledge and develop proficiency in computing medication dosages. Strong student calculation competency is but one of the ingredients required for the achievement of positive patient outcomes. Among the QSEN skills competencies are demonstrting effective use of technology and standardized practices that support safety and quality; demonstrating effective use of strategies to reduce risk of harm to self or others; and using appropriate strategies to reduce reliance on memory (e.g., checklists) (QSEN, 2011, "Safety" section).. The QSEN attitudes have to do with qualities such as valuing the contributions of standardization/reliability to safety; appreciating the cognitive and physical limits of human performance; and recognizing one's own role in preventing errors (QSEN, 2011, "Safety" section).
An analysis of the institutions and processes of power of the American political system, this course emphasizes the study of American values and beliefs, democratic theory, the role of media, and the interrelationship of economic and political power.
An examination of human behavior, this course covers such topics as learning, memory, problem solving, perception, motivation, personality, intelligence, testing, and abnormal behavior.
In this analysis of the determinants, assessment, classification, and treatment of abnormal behavior, students examine theoretical, clinical, and experimental data. Prerequisite: PSY 101 and ENG 101.
Physical, cognitive, emotional, and social development of the individual across the life cycle are covered in this course. Students examine challenges and issues associated with each stage of development and the impact of social and cultural dynamics on the individual. Because of duplication of material, PSY 210 is not open to students who have completed 6 credits from PSY 200 and PSY 206. Prerequisite: PSY 101 and ENG 101.
Students learn and use basic perspectives and research methods of sociology in examining individual and group interactions and institutions. This course concentrates on such topics as culture, the social origins of the self, collective behaviors and social movements, and social stratification.
The different patterns, definitions, and theories of crime are critically examined. The strengths and limitations of crime statistics and society's responses to crime are also reviewed. Prerequisite: SOC 101. Prerequisite or Corequisite: ENG 101
Students use a sociological perspective to critically analyze how social issues and problems are developed and changed. This course focuses on such topics as crime and violence, racial and ethnic inequality, gender inequality, aging, employment, poverty, healthcare, and drug and alcohol use. Prerequisite: SOC 101. Prerequisite or Corequisite: ENG 101
This course focuses on the theoretical foundation of cultural diversity in the United States. Racial, ethnic, gender, and class differences are examined from sociological perspectives. In order to develop deeper understanding of American culture, cross-cultural perspectives will be introduced. Active participation in class discussion is required. Prerequisite: SOC 101. Prerequisite or Corequisite: ENG 101
This is a review course for students who have taken high school Spanish, but who do not have the language skills necessary for placement in SPA 102 or SPA 111. Communication in Spanish is emphasized and regular practice with language tapes and videos forms an integral part of the course. The course is intended to satisfy two semester language requirements. It meets for six hours a week. Prerequisite: One to two years of high school Spanish or by advisement.
Improvement in speaking, reading, and writing Spanish is stressed in this course for students who can already communicate orally in simple Spanish and who have a good knowledge of basic Spanish grammar. Students read articles from Spanish newspapers and magazines and simple short stories. In addition, they review Spanish grammar and practice, applying it in conversations, reports, and compositions. Recommended: Three to four years of high school Spanish; the equivalent of SPA 102, SPA 111, or SPA 115; or by advisement.
