MATH 111 (3 credits) Discrete Mathematics. Math for the Liberal Arts is a mathematics course intended for those students who are taking mathematics for liberal arts or general education purposes. The topics include set theory followed by a study of logic; the terminology and notation of logical statements and the determination of the validity of statements and arguments are introduced; fundamentals of geometry, including angles, polygons, perimeter, and area, are reviewed. Students will also be introduced to a unit on statistics that includes graphical presentation of data and sampling, measures of central tendency and location, measures of spread, and normal distributions. Other topics include consumer mathematics and probability. Class Meeting Times: TR 11:00 – 12:15 PM
