MATH 100 (SURVEY OF MATHEMATICS) includes a variety of selected mathematical topics designed to acquaint students with examples of mathematical reasoning. The topics included in a given section or academic term are chosen by the instructor to demonstrate the beauty and power of mathematics from applied, symbolic, and abstract standpoints. MATH 100 is not intended as, and does not qualify as, a prerequisite for advanced mathematics courses.
Prerequisite: C or better (or CR) in MATH 82, MATH 83 or equivalent non-Leeward CC course, within the past two years. Equivalent courses include MATH 25 and 26 (but NOT 22, 23, 24, or 81). Other equivalencies include qualifying COMPASS placement scores (50 or greater in the algebra placement domain) and qualifying SAT scores (530 or greater in the quantitative section).
The lectures were taped in advance and will be broadcast on Oceanic cable digital channel 355. Students are expected to subscribe to cable and record each lecture. There are also internet components.
This course is NOT self-paced and CANNOT be completed entirely from home. Four proctored, on-campus chapter exams are required and must be taken during specified testing windows.
TEXTBOOK: Mathematics: Reasons, Results, and Applications, Second Preliminary Edition, by Eric Matsuoka. This book is available for purchase from the Leeward CC bookstore or can be download from this group.
CALCULATOR: A scientific calculator capable of two-variable statistical functions is REQUIRED. The following Texas Instruments models are supported (meaning help will be available): TI-30xIIB, TI-30xIIS, TI-82, TI-83, and TI-84.
Joining this course group will allow you to view the course materials (in the files sections) for the current and prior academic terms. Materials to be used in upcoming semesters may not yet be available.
