 Course Cut Score Range Comments Description Math 105 Basic College Mathematics 14-30 Preparatory course for statistics and liberal arts math The course assesses students’ skills, identifies specific learning barriers, and provides techniques to promote student success. Mathematical topics include the real number system; absolute value; order of operations; conversions between fractions, decimals and percent; operations with fractions; ratios and proportions; identifying slope and intercepts of a linear equation; interpreting slope as a rate of change; writing, graphing and solving linear equations and inequalities in two variables; properties of exponents; scientific notation; operations with polynomials, and radical expressions. Math 106 Preparation for Pre-calculus 14-45 Preparatory course for pre-calculus This course identifies skills needed and promotes techniques for mathematical computations. The course includes topics such as factoring polynomials; using laws of exponents; solving quadratic equations and applications; simplifying rational expressions, graphing, and solving rational equations; solving complex fractions; simplifying radical expressions, graphing, and solving radical equations. Math 122 Liberal Arts Mathematics 31-100 This course is designed to develop an interest in mathematics and the importance of quantitative reasoning for an informed citizenry. This course, in its unique focus of social issues, will cover algebra thinking, application and interpretation of functions and elementary statistics. Math 140 Statistics 31-100 Introduction to descriptive and inferential statistics using mainly parametric methods. Some of the major areas covered are: measures of central tendencies, measures of dispersion, distributions (such as frequency, normal, binomial and probability), correlation, regression and hypothesis testing. Math 180 Pre-calculus 46-75 An intense review and extension of the aspects of algebra, geometry and trigonometry that are most important in the study of calculus; an introduction to new ideas necessary for the study of calculus such as limit, continuity and composition of functions. Math 190 Calculus I 76-100 Introduction of calculus including limits, differentiation, integration and analytic geometry. Applications (both traditional and modern) appear throughout, including examples from geometry, economics and physics. The graphing, functional and programming features of graphing calculators will be employed to enhance the understanding and application of calculus.
