This course is intended to enable students to view mathematics as part of their life experience by solving real-world problems using a modeling and function approach. This course is especially suitable for liberal arts/general studies, social science and humanities majors and the many majors which only require a math elective, such as Communication Arts. Major topics include: an introduction to functions from a verbal, numeric, algebraic and graphical approach; an investigation of elementary functions (linear, exponential, logarithmic and quadratic) through modeling and analyzing real data and an applications approach to building and solving systems of linear equations. A specific graphing calculator is recommended and will be used throughout the course. This course may be used as an alternative to MT 112 or as a bridge to MT 125. It will not replace the MT 125/126 sequence as a prerequisite for calculus.
Prerequisites: MT 006 or MT 013 or waived from placement test or placed into degree credit math.
