Math in Society


Credits: 5
Clock Hours per Quarter: 50

AA Discipline: [Quantitative] [Natural Sciences]

Lecture Hours:50


Description
Emphasizes mathematical reasoning, mathematical habits of thought, mathematical decision-making, mathematical communication, and the use of mathematical symbols, techniques and computations. Topics include proportional reasoning, mathematics of personal finance, probability, descriptive statistics, and growth and decay models (linear and exponential).
Prerequisite: Grade of C or higher in MATH 078E or permission of the Mathematics Department. Formerly MATH 107, Mathematics: A Practical Experience.

Intended Learning Outcomes
  • Solve problems using dimensional analysis.
  • Compare meaningful quantities using percentages and reference values.
  • Analyze financial situations through the use of appropriate formulas.
  • Summarize, interpret, and analyze models and sets of data using appropriate statistical terminology.
  • Compute experimental and theoretical probabilities to determine quantities, such as odds, complements, expected values, and compound and conditional probabilities.
  • Evaluate situations involving growth and decay to determine appropriate models (such as linear or exponential) and apply these models to solve problems.
