MATS 1251 Fundamental principles of inferential statistics are presented in lecture and supplemented with computer labs using Minitab software. Specific topics include descriptive and graphical statistics, fundamentals of counting and probability, probability distributions, sampling distributions, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, linear regression, chi-square tests, ANOVA, and nonparametrics.

MATS 1300 This course develops a student's ability to analyze and work with functions and graphs, as part of the preparation for a rigorous calculus sequence (taking this course together with MATS1320 is equivalent to precalculus). Topics include tests for symmetry, finding intercepts and asymptotes, constructing piece wise-defined functions, transformations, polynomial and rational functions, composite and inverse functiions, and exponential and logarithmic functions. Techniques for solving linear, quadratic, rational, radical, exponential and logarithmic equations (with applications) are emphasized throughout the course. Systems of linear equations and matrix algebra are introduced, after wich sequences and series are also briefly introduced. Meets MnTC Goal 4

MATS 1320 A foundation in trigonometry which, taken with college algebra, prepares students for a rigorous calculus sequence. Topics include right-triangle trigonometry, the laws of sines and cosines, the unit circle, trigonometric graphs with transformations, trigonometric identities, inverse trigonometric functions, trigonometric equations, polar coordinates, complex numbers and vectors. Meets MnTC Goal 4.

MATS 1350 A college level course designed to build a student's appreciation of both the beauty and utility of mathematics as it is used in society. Topics include voting and apportionment, fair division, scheduling and route planning, patterns of growth, and basic probability and statistics concepts including the bell curve. NOTE that this course does not serve as a prerequisite for any other math course. Meets MnTC Goal 4

MATS 1500 This course is designed for students who wish to explore the foundations of calculus in a more mathematically rigorous way than in MATS1480. The course begins with college trigonometry topics, including the six trigonometric functions and their inverses, the law of sines/law of cosines, radian measure and the unit circle, trigonometric identities and solving trigonometric equations. Fundamental concepts of calculus are then developed, including limits and continuity, differentiation of polynomial, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions with applications, and integration by numerical and exact methods with applications. Mathematical modeling with differential equations is also introduced.
