## Math 103S: Statistics with Integrated Support

Statistics is the study of data. In statistics, analytical and critical thinking are more important than the symbol manipulation that is common in an algebra course, and the problems are from the real world rather than from the abstract world. Computer technology is an important ally in analyzing real-world data. An understanding of the basic concepts and practices of statistics is important for students in any discipline where data play an important role — such as social, behavioral, physical, and biological sciences. This course is an introduction to statistics that will prepare students to appreciate and understand the quantitative aspects of other disciplines and of life itself. This course also includes just-in-time support for topics covered in Math 103. Designed for students who haven't had math in a while or would benefit from reviewing the necessary topics while learning new topics. Transfers to UC and CSU; meets Area B4 for CSU GE. Pending approval for Area 2 IGETC. Many baccalaureate majors in Social Science and Science require a course in Statistics.

## Math 105: Concepts and Structures of Elementary Mathematics I

In Math 105, students study the underlying concepts of arithmetic and other basic structures of mathematics. The class is often taught using more collaborative learning as opposed to lecture, where students work together in small groups both during and outside of class to help each other discover and learn the material, often exploring with hands-on manipulatives. Parents of school-age children often immediately apply the knowledge gained from this course to help their children understand their own studies. The foundations of elementary mathematics are studied at a sophisticated level in an informal class setting. It requires a lot of work, critical thinking and learning on one's own, but because there is a lot of peer and teacher support, the drop-out rate is low and the class is a rewarding, relevant experience for most. Students even remember and use what they learn. There may be a service learning requirement helping in an elementary school. Liberal Arts and Elementary Education majors are usually required to take Math 105. Transfers to CSU. Meets Area B4 for CSU-GE. It Transfers as an elective for UC, but may not be used to meet the math requirements for UC admissions.

## Math 115: Calculus with Applications

This course is designed for students majoring in business, economics and the life and social sciences. This 5-unit course includes just-in-time support for the main topics covered and therefore, students will not be required to complete a College Algebra course or to enroll in a support course to complete this requirement. The goals are to present the basic concepts and techniques of calculus to students and to demonstrate how calculus can be used to build models and solve problems in various disciplines. We start with a review of the material necessary for the understanding and manipulation of algebraic expressions that are needed for success in this course. Verbalization of mathematical concepts, results and processes is encouraged. Transfers to CSU and UC. Meets the CSU-GE B4 and IGETC Area 2 requirements. Students planning to transfer into Business majors are usually required to take this course.

## Math 126S: Pre-Calculus I - College Algebra with Integrated Support

This course is a prerequisite for Math 131 (Pre-calculus II: Trigonometry and Analytic Geometry. Or you can take Math 126 as a stand-alone College Algebra course. College Algebra is a continuation of the study of algebra. Students review solving algebraic equations and inequalities, study graphs of linear, quadratic, higher-degree polynomial, rational, and inverse functions, and continue their study of exponential and logarithmic functions. College Algebra is required for some majors at various four year colleges and universities. This course also includes just-in-time support for topics covered in Math 126. Designed for students who haven't had math in a while or would benefit from reviewing the necessary topics while learning new topics. Transfers to CSU. CSU-Area B4 Pending Approval Fall 2022
