# MATH 110 - Survey of College Mathematics

(MATF)

A general college mathematics course whose topics include linear equations, matrix algebra, linear programming, probability, Markov chains, and mathematics of finance. The applications are primarily from business, economics, and the life sciences. Emphasis is on developing, analyzing, and interpreting mathematical models. PREREQUISITE(S): A grade of C or better in MATH 093 , MATH 096 , MATH 115A , MATH 117A , appropriate score on mathematics assessment test, or consent of department. Assessment Level(s): ENGL 101 /ENGL 101A  or AELW 940  , READ 120  or AELR 930 . Three hours each week. Formerly MA 110.

3 semester hours

Course Outcomes:
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:

• Apply transition matrices to kth-state probability matrices and calculate stationary matrices in Markov chain problems.
• Calculate and interpret probabilities for discrete variables in contexts such as games of chance, stochastic processes, and product screening.
• Calculate and interpret probabilities for discrete variables in contexts such as games of chance, stochastic processes, and product screening.
• Design, categorize, and solve linear systems of inequalities in two variables for the purposes of resource allocation in fields such as manufacturing, nutrition, and agriculture (linear programming).
• Design, categorize, and solve linear systems of inequalities in two variables for the purposes of resource allocation in fields such as manufacturing, nutrition, and agriculture (linear programming).
• Do basic operations with matrices that include addition, subtraction, scalar multiplication, and multiplication.
• Interpret quantitative information from selected real-world word problems so that data can be encapsulated into suitable mathematical models
• Solve finance problems involving simple interest, compound interest, annual percentage yield, future value of an ordinary annuity, present value of an ordinary annuity, loans, and mortgages.
• Solve linear systems by the Gauss-Jordan augmented matrix method and/or by using the inverse of the coefficient matrix, when applicable
• Use computer software such as Excel and/or use calculator software such as the TVM Solver, Equation Solver, and/or matrix menus when appropriate
• Write interpretive results in clear, concise English sentences tailored to meet the needs of the target audience.
