The purpose of this course is to relate college-level mathematics to real-life problems. We will emphasize problem-solving techniques, specifically by means of discussing concepts including sets, probability, statistics, finance, and geometry. Students will apply basic college-level mathematics to real-life problems. Appropriate for students whose major does not require MAT 117 or 170. Course Objectives Students will apply knowledge about set theory (sets, set notation, and set operations) to solve problems Students will apply basic counting techniques and probability theory to solve probability-based problems Students will apply a variety of statistical measures to solve problems Students will solve a variety of financial-based problems including problems involving simple and compound interest, annuities, and amortized loans. Student will apply geometric concepts (dimensional analysis, perimeter, area, surface area, volume, similarity, proportions, and trigonometric function) to solve geometry- based problems. Prerequisites This course is open to students whose major does not require MAT 117 or MAT 170 and who have completed MAT 106, MAT 113 or MAT 117 with C or better or completed the Math Placement Test with a score of 0-39.9 or higher or completed MAT 110 (or MAT 194: EFM) with skills mastered for MAT 142.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
