Mathematics is a universal language, and this course is designed to equip students for the dialogue. As an introductory course, students are invited to increase their quantitative reasoning skills and apply them to everyday problems. By understanding the fundamentals of number sequences, graphical methods, logarithms, and statistics, students will be better able to engage the sciences and humanities. These tools are relevant in the marketplace, and students can approach their chosen professions with greater confidence. May be applied toward the lower-division general-education mathematics breadth requirement.
