The nature and process of mathematical thinking (inductive, deductive, and algorithmic), as well as applications and results, are the underlying components of this course. Possible topics to be explored include sets, logic, number theory, geometry, graph theory and probability. A selection of three or more such topics will be offered. Satisfies the Foundations of Mathematical Reasoning core requirement (CMAR).
This particular section of MATH105 focuses on the use of
mathematical reasoning to accomplish tasks and make decisions. The
topics chosen are measurement, modeling, and polynomials. These will
be studied from the perspective of hands-on group projects. Regular
attendance in this class is essential to student success.
