CLASS CODE: | MATH 110H | CREDITS: 3 | FEE: $5.00 |
DIVISION: | GENERAL STUDIES | ||
DEPARTMENT: | HONORS PROGRAM | ||
GENERAL EDUCATION: | This course fulfills a General Education - Math requirement. | ||
DESCRIPTION: | This is an Honors course addressing many of the traditional topics of College Algebra. It differs from the Math 110 course in that it is directed toward historical linkage, proof, and challenging problem solving. This course will satisfy the General Education Math Requirement. It will also prepare the student for future math courses that require a strong algebra component. (TI86 calculator required) |
||
TAUGHT: | |||
CONTENT AND TOPICS: | Topics addressed in Honors College Algebra are: functions, polynomials, rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, systems of linear and nonleanear equations, sequences and series, the Binomial Theorem, and mathematical induction. Depending on the discretion of the instructor, this list of topics is subject to change. | ||
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES: | As a result of successfully completing this course, students will have demonstrated an acceptable level of mastery of basic concepts and principles of algebra and an understanding necessary to apply these concepts and principles to problem solving. Acceptable mastery of the course contents will indicate an algebra background necessary to pursue further classes in mathematics that require a strong algebra component. | ||
REQUIREMENTS: | The student must receive permission from the instructor before registering. Since this is an Honors course, a GPA of at least 3.5 is required (most recent GPA, be it high school or college). The student is required to purchase a textbook chosen by the instructor and a TI86 calculator. | ||
PREREQUISITES: | In addition to receiving permission from the instructor before registering and having a GPA of at least 3.5, the student must meet the following prerequisites: Must have passed Math 101 with a "B" or higher (within the past 3 years) OR successfully completed two years of high school algebra (within the past 3 years) AND achieve a satisfactory score on the placement exam given at the beginning of the class. |
