Course Description

QS105 Mathematical Reasoning and Applications. This course aids the student to be cognizant of the vocabulary and mathematical skills necessary to develop quantitative reasoning skills for the general liberal arts major. It takes the view that modern mathematics has become an art of posing and solving problems by logical reasoning by understanding the problem, devising a plan, and carrying out the plan. The course accomplishes these tasks by dealing with the following topics: algebra, geometry, probability and statistics, set theory, finite groups, graph theory, and basic logic. Computer applications throughout the course may be included.

Prerequisite: MATH0900 or content evidence by placement examination.
