MAT 120 - Modern College Mathematics

Course Description

This course is designed to give students in the non-science fields an appreciation of and experience in using problems solving techniques, deductive and inductive reasoning, logical reasoning and symbolic logic to solve problems in a variety of disciplines. It also gives students an overview of the history of the number systems of various cultures, and reviews and reinforces the use of Algebra to solve problems in different fields of study OR uses ratios, proportions and percents to solve consumer-related problems. Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to: Use the notation and operations of set theory. Use inductive and deductive reasoning and symbolic logic as appropriate to draw a logical conclusion from given information. Represent numbers from different number systems and add, subtract, multiply and divide in numeration systems other than base ten. Plus, two of the following three competencies: Analyze the real-number system and apply it to real world problems. Solve linear equations and inequalities using algebraic and graphic techniques and apply those techniques to real world problems. Use ratios, proportions and percents to solve consumer-related problems.
