Information Literacy

LIB 111

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.

Basic Algebra

MAT 098

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.

Intermediate Algebra

MAT 100

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.

Survey of Mathematics

MAT 101

Students will discover the power of mathematics as a foundation for lifelong learning. As they explore various real world applications, students will strengthen their critical thinking, quantitative analysis, and problem-solving skills, as well as discover connections between mathematics and other disciplines. Topics will include logic, probability, statistics, and personal finance. Additional topics may include voting and social choice, geometry, graph theory, and symmetries. This course is intended for students who do not need higher level mathematics for their program. Prerequisite: MAT 098, placement in MAT 100 or higher or by permission of instructor.

Coll Algebra&Trigonometry

MAT 115

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.

Pre-Calculus

MAT 160

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.

Calculus I

MAT 170

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).

Elementary Statistics

MAT 211

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.

Nursing Dosage Calculations

NUR 153

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).

American Government

POS 201

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.

General Psychology

PSY 101

An examination of human behavior, this course covers such topics as learning, memory, problem solving, perception, motivation, personality, intelligence, testing, and abnormal behavior.

Abnormal Psychology

PSY 203

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.

Life Span Development

PSY 210

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.

Principles of Sociology

SOC 101
