MATH-170

Analytic Geometry and Calculus I

Credit(s): 4

MATH 170 is an introduction to calculus as the mathematics of change and motion. It emphasizes limits, the derivative, techniques of differentiation, and the integral. This course builds a foundation for all further study in mathematics and science that is typically required in mathematics, engineering, computer science, physics, chemistry, and other transfer degrees. Note: MATH-170 carries no credit if taken after successful completion of a higher numbered math course with the exception of MATH-187, MATH-253, and MATH-257. Lecture: 4 hours per week
Prerequisites: Entry is based on an appropriate score on the placement test, either COMPASS College Algebra > 51 and Trigonometry > 51, ACT Math > 29, SAT Math > 650 or a grade of C- or above in MATH-147 or MATH-144.

MATH-175

Analytic Geometry and Calculus II

Credit(s): 4

MATH 175 is a continuation of the calculus sequence emphasizing techniques of integration, applications of integration, polar coordinates, parametric equations, sequences, and series. It is required for most transfer degrees in mathematics and science. Note: MATH-175 carries no credit if taken after successful completion of a higher numbered math course with the exception of MATH-187, MATH-253, MATH-257, and MATH-335. Lecture: 4 hours per week
Prerequisites: Complete MATH-170 with a minimum grade of C-.

MATH-275

Analytic Geometry and Calculus III

Credit(s): 4

MATH 275 is a continuation of the calculus sequence. It includes the study of vectors and vector valued functions, and the ideas of the calculus of a single variable are extended to functions of several variables. Partial differentiation and multiple integration are used to examine Green's Theorem, Stokes' Theorem, and the Divergence Theorem from vector analysis. This course provides an understanding of the mathematics necessary for mathematics degrees and the study of multivariable physical phenomena in the physical science, chemistry, and engineering areas. Note: MATH-275 carries no credit if taken after successful completion of MATH-370. Lecture: 4 hours per week
Prerequisites: Complete MATH-175 with a minimum grade of C-.
