In MATH 110 our goal is to convey the power of mathematics as shown by the variety of problems which can be modeled and solved by quantitative means. Topics include data analysis, systems of equations and inequalities, elementary linear programming, the mathematics of finance and probability. The course includes applications of these topics to problem solving and decision making in economics, management, and social sciences.


Satisfactory score on Math Department placement exam or completion of the appropriate modules of MATH 003. The course is not open to students majoring in mathematics, engineering, business, life sciences, and the physical sicences, or to students who have completed MATH 140 of MATH 220, or any course for which MATH 140 or MATH 220 is a prerequisite. Credit will be granted for only one of the following: MATH 110, MATH 112, or MATH 113.
