Mathematics for the Liberal Arts
This course is designed to acquaint the liberal arts student with a broad spectrum
of mathematical ideas not emphasized in traditional algebra based courses. The goals
of the course are to develop the mathematical and quantitative capabilities of the
students; to enable them to understand a variety of applications of mathematics; to
prepare them to think logically in subsequent courses and situations in which
mathematics occurs; and to increase their confidence in their ability to reason
mathematically. Topics may include: inductive reasoning and problem solving, sets, logic,
number systems, counting techniques, elementary probability, graph theory, fractal geometry,
voting and appointment, consumer mathematics.
PREREQUISITE: Completion of MAT 137 with a grade of C or better.
