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: ISP 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.

Mathematics topics relevant to microcomputer use are covered in this course. These include a review of algebra, base arithmetic (using binary, octal, and hexadecimal number systems), an introduction to statistics, set theory, Boolean algebra, logic, and an introduction to mathematics of finance. Prerequisites: MAT 098, high school equivalent (see Guidelines for Mathematics Placement), or Entering Student Assessment at MAT 100 (or higher), and BUS 171 or CIS 100.

Background information for the teaching of elementary school mathematics is provided in this course. Topics include problem solving; number theory; set theory; probability and statistics; theory of addition and subtraction; and logic. Students learn mathematical theory and application, and experience the role of elementary school students through a variety of classroom activities and demonstrations. Prerequisite: MAT 100 or its equivalent with a grade of C or better, high school equivalent (see Guidelines for Mathematics Placement), or by Entering Student Assessment. This course is open to education majors only.

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 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.

Topics in this course include solutions to standard types of first- and second-order differential equations using differential operators, the method of undetermined coefficients, and variation of parameters. Students also study higher order equations, an introduction to Laplace transforms, systems of equations, series solutions, and numerical methods. Prerequisite: MAT 180 with a grade of C or better.
