Review of basic arithmetic calculations, decimals, percentages, solving simple equations
in one variable; discussion of discounts, simple and compound interest, credit cards,
home mortgages, taxes; life, fire and auto insurance; payrolls, averages, graphs,
and other consumer- and business-related computations. Prerequisite: ACT math score
of 18 or equivalent score on COMPASS Pre-Algebra or Algebra tests, or completion of
LAD-9014 with a grade of “C” or better. Fall, Spring, Summer.**Units:** 3**Offered:** Fall, Spring, Summer Semesters**Area:** Math & Science

College Algebra provides the student with a foundation in problem solving in these
topics: functions, graphing techniques, polynomial, rational exponential, and logarithmic
functions; systems of equations and inequalities, matrices, and determinats, sequences
and series, and the binomial theorem. Concepts and problem solving are presented from
both the traditional and graphing calculator approaches. A graphing calculator is
required, and the TI-83+ calculator is recommended. Prerequisite: LAD 9024 Foundations
of College Math 2 with a grade of "C" or better, or two years of high school algebra
and compliance with state/NPCC placement test standards. Fall, Spring, Summer. ACTS
Equivalent Course Number = MATH 1103**Units:** 3**Offered:** Fall, Spring, Summer Semesters**Area:** Math & Science

Introduces the student to the study of trigonometric functions; angles and their measures,
right triangles, oblique triangles, and the graphs of trigonometric functions; identities
and trigonometric equations; inverse functions; vectors and complex numbers and polar
coordinates. The use of the TI-83+ and available computer software is included in
the course. Prerequisite: Two years of high school algebra or equivalent or MATH 1123-College
Algebra taken previously or concurrently with this course. Fall, Spring, Summer.
ACTS Equivalent Course Number = MATH 1203**Units:** 3**Offered:** Fall, Spring, Summer Semesters**Area:** Math & Science

Introduces the student to elementary statistical concepts using a basic algebra background.
Topics include: organizing and analyzing data, probability, normal distribution, central
limit theorem, hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, regression-correlation, Chi-Square
and ANOVA (basic). Prerequisite: LAD 9024 Foundations of College Math 2 or High
School Algebra II with a C or better and compliance with state/NPCC placement tests
or Instructor approval. Available upon sufficient student demand. ACTS Equivalent
Course Number = MATH 2103**Units:** 3**Offered:** Upon Sufficient Student Demand**Area:** Math & Science

This course includes topics that are fundamental tools for higher mathematics, especially
those courses that are discrete, rather than continuous, in nature. The topics covered
in this course are also essential to applications in computer sciences and modern
technology. Topics include set theory, relations and functions, proofs by induction
and contradiction, formal logic and truth tables, graph theory, Boolean and matrix
algebra, combinatorics, and probability.
Prerequisite: MATH1123 College Algebra.**Units:** 3**Offered:** Upon Sufficient Student Demand**Area:** Math & Science

An introduction to concepts of differential and integral calculus used in business
decisions and applications. Course content includes curve sketching, exponential
