Currently Teaching

NMTH-180
3 Credits
An introductory algebra course consisting of a blended lecture/lab component in which the basics of evaluating algebraic expressions, solving linear equations and inequalities and graphing linear functions are studied. The Pythagorean Theorem and systems of linear equations are also studied. Students cannot earn credit for both NMTH-180 and NMTH-245.
NMTH-220
3 Credits
Topics include the trigonometric ratios, radian measure, angles in a coordinate system, ratio values for special angles, trigonometric inverses, graphs of trigonometric functions, and trigonometric identities and equations
NMTH-110
3 Credits
Improves students' fundamental understanding of and skills in mathematics. Concepts covered include fractions, decimals, percents and ratios. Students are introduced to signed numbers, variables, algebraic expressions and equations, simple geometric formulas, and graphing. Instruction emphasizes the use of English and ASL as they relate to basic mathematical operations.
STAT-145
3 Credits
This course introduces statistical methods of extracting meaning from data, and basic inferential statistics. Topics covered include data and data integrity, exploratory data analysis, data visualization, numeric summary measures, the normal distribution, sampling distributions, confidence intervals, and hypothesis testing. The emphasis of the course is on statistical thinking rather than computation. Statistical software is used.
