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).

Calculus II

MAT 180

The antiderivative, techniques of integration, applications of the definite integral, approximations, improper integrals, L'Hospital's Rule, series, and sequences are covered in this course. A TI-83 or TI-84 graphing calculator is required. Prerequisite: MAT 170 with a grade of C or better.

Discrete Mathematics
