### MAT-124.1 Applied Calculus 3.0 cr.

A continuation of MAT-123 introducing both differential and integral calculus. Examples drawn from business, economics, biology, and the social and behavioral sciences. (MATHEMATICS)

### MAT-149 Pre-Calculus 4.0 cr.

Fall. Prereq.: MAT 105 or one year of high school mathematics beyond geometry and algebra 2 or permission. Topics in algebra and trigonometry beyond those covered in the second course in high school algebra. Emphasis is placed on concepts, structures and technical competence. Topics include solutions of algebraic equations and inequalities; functions and graphs; exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions; elementary plane analytic geometry. (MATHEMATICS)

### MAT-151 Calculus I 4.0 cr.

Fall, spring. Prereq.: MAT 149 or four years of high school mathematics or permission. A study of differential and integral calculus of real functions of one real variable. Topics include limits and continuity, differentiation, the chain rule, the mean-value theorem, the fundamental theorem of calculus, curve sketching, integration by substitution, introductory differential equations , and applications of the derivative and integral. (MATHEMATICS)

### MAT-152 Calculus II

Fall, spring. Prereq.: MAT 151 or permission. MAT-152 is a continuation of MAT-151. A further study of differential and integral calculus of real functions of one real variable. Topics include further techniques of integration, applications of the integral (volume, arc length, work), and sequences and series. (MATHEMATICS)

### MAT-212 Advanced Statistical Methods 3.0 cr.

Spring. Alt. years. Prereq.: MAT-112 or equivalent. A continuation of MAT-112. Topics covered include analysis of variance, multiple regression, chi square and nonparametric statistics, time series, index numbers and decision theory. (MATHEMATICS)
