- 4 CRS.4 HRS.MAT 206 (Precalculus)
- This course covers basic algebraic and trigonometric skills, algebraic equations, and functions. Topics include: mathematical induction, complex numbers, and the binomial theorem.
Prerequisite: MAT 56 or MAT 56.5
- This is an integrated course in analytic geometry and calculus, applied to functions of a single variable. It covers a study of rectangular coordinates in the plane, equations of conic sections, functions, limits, continuity, related rates, differentiation of algebraic and transcendental functions, Rolle's Theorem, the Mean Value Theorem, maxima and minima, and integration.
Prerequisite: MAT 206 or MAT 206.5
- 4 CRS.4 HRS.MAT 100 (Fundamentals of Mathematics I)
- This course includes the study of several mathematical systems. The role of mathematics in modern culture, the role of postulational thinking in all of mathematics, and the scientific method are discussed. The course considers topics such as: the nature of axioms, truth and validity; the concept of number; the concept of set; scales of notation; and groups and fields.
Prerequisites: MAT 12, MAT 14, MAT 41, MAT 51 or MAT 161.5
- This course integrates Intermediate Algebra and Trigonometry with Precalculus. Topics include properties of real numbers, polynomials and factoring, equations and inequalities in one and two variables, systems of linear equations and inequalities, rational expressions and functions, rational exponents and roots, quadratic functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, and trigonometric functions.
Prerequisite: Elementary Algebra (MAT 51 or MAT 12) or the equivalent with departmental approval or placement into Intermediate Algebra (MAT 56)
- This course is an extension of the concepts of differentiation and integration to functions of two or more variables. Topics include partial differentiation, multiple integration, Taylor series, polar coordinates and the calculus of vectors in one or two dimensions.
Prerequisite: MAT 302
- This course aims to teach students how to interpret quantitative information, analyze quantitative data, and make inferences in contexts involving mathematical concepts. Topics include proportional reasoning, interpreting percentages, units and measurement, thinking critically, numbers in the real world, financial management, statistical reasoning, probability, and linear and exponential modeling. This course satisfies the mathematics requirement for the CUNY Pathways. This course cannot be used as a pre-requisite for MAT 56 and is not suited for Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) majors or any major that requires MAT 56.
- Statistics with algebra is a statistics course (4 credits and 60 hours) with an additional 30 hours focusing on elementary algebraic concepts useful in statistics. After covering the selected algebraic concepts, the course covers the study of basic statistics. It includes measures of central tendency, measures of dispersion, graphs, probability, the binomial distribution, the normal distribution, sampling distributions, the chi-square distribution, t-tests, estimation and hypothesis testing, correlation and regression.
Students who passed MAT 12, MAT 14, MAT 41, MAT 51, MAT 56, MAT 160, MAT 161, MAT 56.5, MAT 150.5 cannot take MAT 161.5.
