General Education Requirements

4  CH
Mathematics
MATH 125-1
Introductory Statistics 4
This course focuses on mathematical reasoning and the solving of real-life problems. Topics addressed include: descriptive statistics (measures of center, variation, and position, and frequency distributions); basic probability theory (counting techniques, sample spaces, probability laws); probability distributions (normal and binomial); statistical inference, which includes estimation, hypothesis testing (z-test, t-test, and chi-square test), errors, and correlation/regression. Tools such as graphing calculators or computers are an integral part of this course. Writing assignments, as appropriate to the discipline, are part of the course.
Prerequisites:A minimum grade of ā€˜Cā€™ in one of the following courses: Math 90 or Math 99 or Math 100; or a minimum grade of C in Math 98 AND concurrent or successful completion of Math 025; or appropriate score on Placement Test; or Consent of Department Chair.
Offered at: Harold Washington Harry S Truman Kennedy-King Malcolm X Olive-Harvey Richard J. Daley Wilbur Wright

Statistical Process Control 3
This course introduces the use of statistical process control (SPC) which ensures that production systems maintain quality through predictive control of variations. Various distribution curves and statistical control charts are introduced through specific production problems. The interpretation and use of process and product control data is presented through simulations of real scenarios. The course will also prepare students for the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council's Quality Practices and Measurement exam. Writing assignments, as appropriate to the discipline, are part of the course.
Prerequisites:Grade of C or better in 340MFGT 139, AND Grade of C or better or concurrent enrollment in Math 125; OR Consent of Department Chairperson.
Offered at: Richard J. Daley
340MFGT 139
Print Requirements-Quality Assurance 3
This course focuses on the fundamentals of print reading and the measuring skills needed to verify print requirements. VisualIzation of 3D objects from orthographic views and the use of micrometers and dial calipers are stressed. The concepts of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing, and quality tools (such as Pareto diagrams and fishbone charts) are introduced. Writing assignments, as appropriate to the discipline, are part of the course.
Prerequisites:Eligibility for Math 98 and English 096 OR Consent of Department Chairperson.
Offered at: Richard J. Daley Wilbur Wright
340MFGT 142
Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing 3
This course expands upon the student's basic knowledge of mechanical drawings by adding form and feature controls in order to meet assembly requirements at the lowest cost. The differences between traditional dimensioning and geometric dimensioning will be stressed. This course prepares students for an ASME certification in GDT. Writing assignments, as appropriate to the discipline, are part of the course.
Prerequisites:Grade of C or better in 340MFGT 139 OR Consent of Department Chairperson.
Offered at: Richard J. Daley
340MFGT 143
Advanced Metrology 3
The course focuses on the use of the Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) and the optical comparator to inspect machine parts to the current ASME Y 14.5 Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) standards. Lab exercises will focus on the set up and operation of precision measuring tools, including the CMM and the optical comparator, to inspect complex parts. Bore gages, attribute gages, gage blocks and pins and their use in calibration will also be covered. Writing assignments, as appropriate to the discipline, are part of the course.
Prerequisites:Grade of C or better OR Concurrent enrollment in 340MFGT 142 OR Consent of Department Chairperson.
