Course code: MA125-01 | CRN: 42008 | Credits: 3 | Seats: 15 / 25
This course runs from August 25, 2014 to December 16, 2014 on MWF from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm
This course is the first of a two-course sequence designed to introduce students to the basic structure of mathematics. Topics cover the structure of real numbers through a careful development of subsystems, to include the natural numbers, the whole numbers, integers, rational numbers and decimals, together with operations on them. Numeration systems including bases other than ten are discussed. The language and nature of deductive reasoning together with basic elements of set theory are introduced. Problem solving is emphasized. The sequence is appropriate for students preparing to teach at the elementary school level. Prerequisite: MA 095 or sufficient placement score. NOTE: Offered fall semesters only.
