MAT 146 Math for the Liberal Arts


Prerequisite: MAT 136E  or MAT 136  with a grade of C- or higher or appropriate placement test score
3 credits

The goals of the course are to develop, as fully as possible, the mathematical and quantitative capabilities of the student; to enable them to understand a variety of applications of mathematics; to prepare them to think logically in subsequent courses and situations in which mathematics occurs; and to increase their confidence in their ability to reason mathematically. Topics that could be included in the course: applications of everyday mathematics, symmetry, transformations, voting strategies, circuits and pathways. This course transfers easily to most four-year institutions. Department exit assessment is required.
