MAT106 - Quantitative Literacy

3 credit hour(s)
This course is designed to develop conceptual understanding, problem-solving, decision-making and analytic skills dealing with quantities and their magnitudes and interrelationships, using calculators and personal computers as tools. The course will include the representation and analysis of data through statistical measures such as central tendency, dispersion, normal and chi-square distributions, and correlation and regression to test hypotheses. Students will also learn to use logical statements and arguments in a real-world context which will include estimating, approximating and judging the reasonableness of answers. Graphing and use of polynomial functions and systems of equations as well as inequalities in the interpretation and solutions of problems will be developed. This knowledge will be developed with the focus on using appropriate approaches and tools to formulate and solve real-world problems.
