Mathematics
MATH 118
General Education Math 4
This course is designed to fulfill general education requirements. It is not designed as a prerequisite for any other college mathematics course. This course focuses on mathematical reasoning and solving of real-life problems. Three or four topics are to be studied in depth, with at least three chosen from the following list: counting techniques and probability, game theory, geometry, graph theory, linear programming, logic and set theory, mathematical modeling, mathematics of finance, and statistics. Applications involving problem-solving skills are emphasized throughout the course. Technology is an integral part of this course. Writing assignments, as appropriate to the discipline, are part of the course.
Prerequisites:A minimum grade of ?C? 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 018; 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
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 ?C? 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.
