**Mathematics**

All mathematics courses up to

MATH 140, 150, 151 or 155

require suitable placement

scores on the placement

examination administered by

the Learning Resources Center

unless appropriate collegelevel

prerequisite courses have

been passed with a grade of

“C” or better. Placement

examination also is

recommended for students

whose last mathematics

course was taken several

years ago.

**MATH 099
Introductory Algebra. [0]
**Designed for the student with little

or no knowledge of algebra.

Topics include properties of integers

and real numbers, linear

equations and inequalities, operations

on monomials and simple

polynomials, factoring seconddegree

polynomials, rational

expressions, properties of exponents

and square roots, and

graphing inequalities. Note:

Three “institutional credits” (not

applicable to the degree) are

awarded. NOTE: This course is

usually given as LRC 099. Prerequisite:

A qualifying score on

the mathematics placement test.

**MATH 100
Introduction to Contemporary
Mathematics (MS). [3]
**Students will be introduced to

many topics from contemporary

mathematics. These are especially

of interest to students in

the social and information sciences.

Topics include networks

and graphs, the traveling salesman

problem, scheduling linear

programming, social choice, voting

systems game theory, fair

division, patterns, tilings form,

similarity and symmetry. Prerequisite:

A suitable score on LRC

algebra placement exam.

**MATH 106
Algebra and
Elementary Functions. [3]
**An introduction to the basic

techniques and functions of

mathematics. This course is

especially recommended for

those students who need to

brush up due to a shaky high

school preparation or for those

who haven’t had a mathematics

course in several years. Topics

include linear equations and

inequalities; quadratic equations;

polynomials; and rational

functions and their inverses,

including the exponential and

the logarithm. Note: Not open

to students who have passed

MATH 150 or above. Not transferrable

to other Maryland public

institutions for college-level

credit. Prerequisite: Qualifying

score on LRC algebra placement

exam.

**MATH 115
Finite Mathematics (MS). [3]
**An introduction to linear algebra,

matrices, set theory, combinatorial

analysis and probability

theory. Appropriate for students

desiring a knowledge of

elementary linear algebra and

probability theory. Note: Not

open to students who have

passed MATH 221, STAT 350,

351, 355 or 451. Prerequisite:

A qualifying score on the LRC

Algebra placement test.

**MATH 131
Mathematics for Elementary
School Teachers I (MS). [4]
**Intended primarily for prospective

elementary school teachers.

Structural aspects of mathematics

and the “why” of arithmetical

computations. Topics

include sets, functions, logic,

numbers and number systems,

numeration systems, properties

of mathematical operations,

techniques for computation,

decimals, elementary number

theory, metric and non-metric

geometry, elements of probability

and statistics. (Fall) Note:

Enrollment is restricted to students

pursuing certification in

elementary or secondary education.

Prerequisites: A suitable

score on LRC algebra placement

exam.

**MATH 132
Mathematics for Elementary
School Teachers II (MS). [4]
**Continuation of MATH 131.

(Spring) Prerequisite: MATH

131.

**MATH 140
Differential Calculus (MS). [3]
**This course covers the fundamentals

of differential calculus

with review of notions of analytic

geometry and trigonometry

as needed. Content includes

limits; rate of change and velocity;

derivatives and rules of differentiation;

differentiation of

polynomial, algebraic and

trigonometric functions; curve

sketching and optimization

problems; and differentiation of

inverse functions, anti-derivatives

and indefinite integrals.

Note: MATH 140 does not cover

all the material of MATH 151. It

is equivalent to the first quarter

of calculus at institutions on a

quarter system. Prerequisite:

MATH 150.

**MATH 141
Integral Calculus. [3]
**Topics of this course include:

computation of areas, definition

of the definite integral, integrals

of algebraic and trigonometric

functions, applications of integrals,

the calculus of exponential

and logarithmic functions,

basic and advanced techniques

of integration, numerical integration

and improper integrals.

Note: The combination of MATH

140 and 141 includes all material

in MATH 151 and can serve

as a prerequisite to MATH 152.

MATH 141 is equivalent to the

second quarter of calculus at

institutions on quarter system.

Prerequisite: MATH 140 or

155B.

**MATH 142
Calculus Applications
and Infinite Series. [3]
**Topics of this course include:

first introduction to differential

equations; further applications

of the differential and integral

calculus; infinite sequences and

series; Taylor and Maclaurin

series for functions, including

the trigonometric, logarithmic

and exponential functions.

Note: Completion of this course

is equivalent to completion of

MATH 152. This is equivalent to

the third quarter of calculus at

institutions on a quarter system.

Prerequisite: MATH 141.

**MATH 150
Pre-Calculus
Mathematics (MS). [4]
**This course provides the mathematical

preparation necessary

for success in calculus. It also

provides preparation for basic

physics, computer science and

engineering science courses.

Topics covered include review of

functions and graphing techniques;

logarithmic and exponential

functions; review of

basic right-angle trigonometry

followed by an extensive treatment

of trigonometric functions,

identities and applications to

the analytic geometry of the

conic sections, applications to

two-dimensional vectors and to

the geometry of complex numbers.

score on LRC algebra placement

exam or MATH 106.

**MATH 151
Calculus and
Analytic Geometry I (MS). [4]
**Topics of this course include

limits, continuity, the rate of

change, derivatives, differentiations

formulas for algebraic and

trigonometric functions, maxima

and minima, integration and

computation of areas. Areas

and volumes of solids of revolution,

applications. Note: Nonscience-

oriented students interested

in calculus should consider

MATH 155. Credit will not

be given for both MATH 151

and 155. Prerequisite: MATH

150 or a qualifying score on the

LRC calculus readiness placement

test.

on elementary techniques of

differentiation and integration

with applications are treated in

this course. Not recommended

for students majoring in mathematics,

computer science, engineering,

biological or physical

sciences. Note: Credit will not

be given for both MATH 151

and 155. Prerequisite: A suitable

score on the LRC algebra

placement test or MATH 106.
