MATH 151 Survey of Mathematics

Integrated concept-based mathematics course that promotes quantitative literacy. College algebra concepts are taught contextually as the language and symbolism of mathematics. Real systems are modeled to develop topics chosen from logic, sets, counting methods, problem solving, statistics, and probability. Experiential activities consolidate core concepts within a collaborative learning environment. Prerequisite: C or better in MATH 099 or test above Intermediate Algebra. (NS, QS)
