MTH301 Fundamentals of Mathematics II

Lead Faculty: Dr. Igor Ya Subbotin

Course Description

This continuation of MTH 209A includes concepts of measurement, geometry, probability and statistics, elementary synthetic and Euclidean Geometry. Computer programming in BASIC is introduced. Methods are incorporated whenever possible. However, both MTH 209A and MTH 301 are content/concept courses as prescribed by State regulations, not methods courses. Calculator may be required.

Learning Outcomes

  • Describe historically significant contributions to the development of mathematics.
  • Differentiate between and use inductive and deductive reasoning.
