**MATH/STAT Courses:**

A course intended to review arithmetic and to preview elementary algebra.

**Prerequisite**: NONE

A course in the fundamental operations of real numbers, solving linear equations in one variable, polynomials, quadratic equations in one variable, and introduction to graphing. Intended to provide a basic foundation for future mathematics needed in fields of business, economics, engineering and related fields. Strong background in fractions and positive and negative numbers is highly recommended.

**Prerequisite**: C or Better in MATH 093 or MATH 116, a Satisfactory ACT/SAT/Placement Test Score, or the Equivalent

This is also a course in the fundamental operations of real numbers, solving linear equations in one variable, exponents, polynomials, graphing linear equations in two variables, and solving linear systems in two variables. The topics will be delivered in a self-paced format using technology, allowing students to begin at the appropriate level based on course placement and allowing them to move through as many topics as they can within the time limits of the semester. This course provides a basic foundation for future mathematics needed in many fields. A comprehensive, proctored, departmental final exam will be given. Please note that this course does NOT satisfy the math component of a degree or certificate program at CSN.

**Prerequisite**: MATH 91 with a grade of B or better; or Satisfactory SAT/ACT/Placement Test score.

Topics include rational expressions and equations, linear equations and inequalities, radicals, quadratic equations, graphs, and applications.

**Prerequisite**: C or Better in MATH 095, a Satisfactory ACT/SAT/Placement Test Score, or the Equivalent

Emphasizing applications, topics include arithmetic, prealgebra, graphing, geometry, finance, probability and statistics. **NOTE**: Course is only applicable for AAS and AGS degrees, and is not transferable for credit.

**Prerequisite**: None

Concepts that will allow student to become proficient in the mathematics used in technical fields are the focal point of this course. Topics include manipulations of whole numbers, integers, fractions and decimals; measurement systems; an introduction to simple geometric figures; algebraic expressions; linear and quadratic equations; and fundamentals of trigonometry.

**Prerequisite**: None

Topics include probability, statistics, geometry, and consumer mathematics. It may include problem-solving, sets, logic, mathematical systems, numeration, and measurement. Course is broad in scope, emphasizing applications.

**Prerequisite**: C or Better in MATH 095, a Satisfactory ACT/SAT/Placement Test Score, or the Equivalent
