## Mathematics—6 credits

(selected from the courses below)

**MAT 116
Algebra 1A**

This course introduces basic algebra concepts and assists
in building

skills for performing specific mathematical operations and problem

solving. Students will solve equations , evaluate algebraic

expressions , solve and graph linear equations and linear inequalities,

graph lines, and solve systems of linear equations and linear

inequalities . These concepts and skills will serve as a foundation for

subsequent business coursework. Applications to real -world

problems are also explored throughout the course. This course is the

first half of the college algebra sequence , which is completed in MAT

117, Algebra IB. (3 credits) Prerequisites : GEN105 and COM140.

**MAT 117
Algebra 1B**

in

building the algebraic and problem solving skills developed in

Algebra 1A. Students will solve polynomials , quadratic equations ,

rational equations , and radical equations. These concepts and skills

will serve as a foundation for subsequent business coursework.

Applications to real -world problems are also explored throughout

the course. This course is the second half of the college algebra

sequence, which began with MAT 116, Algebra 1A. (3 credits)

Prerequisites: GEN 105, COM140, and MAT 116.

**MAT 205
Finite Mathematics**

This course introduces the concepts of finite mathematics,
with a

focus on real-world application. Students will explore linear

functions and equations , linear programming , and the use and

application of matrices. Mathematical applications of finance,

statistics, and probability are also reviewed. (3 credits)

Prerequisites: GEN 105 and COM140.
