MATH 020 Intermediate Algebra (STEM Majors) (5 UNITS)
HOURS: 90 LEC
This course is designed to help students develop the FEATHER RIVER COLLEGE 2019-20 CATALOG | HOW TO FIND FEATHER RIVER COLLEGE 174skills needed for a STEM pathway and to satisfy the requirements of some Associate Degree programs. Topics include simplifying and evaluating expressions; radicals and rational exponents; solving linear, quadratic, radical, and rational equations; writing equations of lines; graphing lines and parabolas; complex numbers; problem solving techniques; and an introduction to functions.

MATH 108 Introduction to Trigonometry (1 UNIT) - SPRING only
HOURS: 18 LEC, CSU
This course is designed to provide students with the fundamentals of introductory trigonometry, angular measurements, right triangle trigonometry, trigonometric functions and their identities. Topics in analytic trigonometry will be presented, including inverse trigonometry functions and double angle formulas. Applications of trigonometry will be introduced. MATH110 will not transfer to UNR without the addition of this course, because of their requirement for a trigonometry component.

MATH 110 College Algebra (4 UNITS)
HOURS: 72 LEC, CSU(B4), IGETC(2A)
This is a college-level algebra course with a real-world, applications approach to algebra topics. This course meets the rigor necessary for students majoring in science or engineering fields. It is designed to provide students with knowledge about advanced topics in algebra, focusing on quadratic, rational, and radical equations, relations, various types of functions and their graphs, rational and quadratic inequalities, systems of linear equations and inequalities, and solving equations of higher degree, including rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions. in addition, review of the following topics is provided: sequences, series, and analytic geometry (properties of conic sections).

MATH 114 Finite Math (4 UNITS)
HOURS: 72 LEC, CSU
This course covers a range of mathematical tools commonly used in business, social sciences, and life sciences, including probability theory and linear mathematics. Selected topics from Markov chains, interest and mortgage calculations, financial decision making, linear programming, two-person zero-sum games, and logic will also be studied.

MATH 150 Concepts and Structures of Mathematics for Educators (3 UNITS) - SPRING of even years
HOURS: 54 LEC, CSU
This course focuses on the development of quantitative reasoning skills through in-depth, integrated explorations of topics in mathematics, including real number systems and subsystems. Though emphasis is on comprehension and analysis of mathematical concepts and applications of logical reasoning, material is presented in a way that emphasizes the notion that the mathematical knowledge a teacher needs is different from the knowledge a student or practitioner of mathematics needs. It is a survey of the elements of mathematics taught in elementary grades but from an advanced standpoint. Prerequisite: Completion of two years of high school algebra and appropriate placement score, or completion of MATH 018 with a grade of C or better, or equivalent.

MATH 202 Elementary Statistics (4 UNITS)
HOURS: 72 LEC; 3, CSU(B4), IGETC(2A)
The use of probability techniques, hypothesis testing, and predictive techniques to facilitate decision-making processes. Topics include descriptive statistics; probability and sampling distributions; statistical inference; correlation and linear regression; analysis of variance, chi-square and t-tests; and application of technology for statistical analysis including the interpretation of the relevance of the statistical findings. Applications using data from disciplines including business, social sciences, psychology, life science, health science, and education. Prerequisite: MATH018 with a grade of "C" or better.

MATH 218 Single Variable Calculus I Late Transcendentals (4 UNIT) - FALL only
HOURS: 90 LEC, CSU(B4), IGETC(2A)
This is a first course in differential and integral calculus of a single variable. Topics include functions, limits and continuity, techniques and applications of differentiation and integration, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. This class will give students a thorough understanding of the mathematical basis for advanced studies in the fields of mathematics, the sciences, technology, engineering, business, and other related fields. Prerequisite: Completion of MATH 116, MATH 110, MATH 108, or equivalent.

MATH 220 - Single Variable Calculus II – Late Transcendentals (4 UNITS) - SPRING only
HOURS: 72 LEC, CSU, IGETC(2A)
This is the second course in a sequence for differential and integral calculus of a single variable. Topics include techniques and application of differentiation of inverse and transcendental functions, techniques and applications of integration, infinite sequences and series, and polar and parametric equations. This class builds upon MATH 218 and further strengthens students understanding of the mathematical basis for advanced studies in the fields of mathematics, the sciences, technology, engineering, business, and other related fields.

MATH 222 - Multivariable Calculus (4 UNITS) - FALL only
HOURS: 72 LEC, CSU(B4)
This is the third course in a sequence for differential and integral calculus where it moves beyond single variable treatment to coverage of multivariable functions. Topics include the algebra and calculus of vectors, geometry of space, vector valued functions, functions of several variables, partial derivatives, multiple integration, Green’s Theorem, Stokes’ Theorem, and Divergence Theorem. This class builds upon Math 220 and completes the calculus course of study required for transfer in the fields of mathematics, the sciences, technology, engineering, business, and other related fields.

MATH 224 - Ordinary Differential Equations (4 UNITS)
HOURS: 4 LEC, CSU(B4)
The course is an introduction to ordinary differential equations including both quantitative and qualitative methods as well as applications from a variety of disciplines. This course focuses on linear differential equations and their applications in science and engineering. The laws of nature may be expressed as differential equations.

MATH 291 - Directed Study (1-5 UNIT)
HOURS: 18-270 HRS, CSU
A student may take advanced course work or complete a student designed project in Mathematics after having completed introductory courses. The topics, learning objectives, educational material(s), number of units to be awarded, and method of evaluation are determined in a written agreement between the instructor and the student before the student engages in the learning experience. A “Learning Contract for Directed Studies” must be completed by the student, approved by the instructor, and Chief Instructional Officer, and placed on file with the Office of Instruction.
