MATH1100 - World of Math
Meets MnTC Goal Areas 2 and 4. This course introduces mathematical approaches to question asking, understanding, problem solving and presentation. Students will apply mathematical principles to varied disciplines including an exploration of a variety of social and global issues. Students will experience mathematics as a creative and evolving discipline. Practice in these areas may include problems involving sequences, methods of counting, probability, logic, statistics, finance, general problem solving and other topics. This course is not intended to prepare students for any subsequent course. It provides an alternative pathway to completing a college-level liberal arts mathematics course and is not intended for science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) students.
