## Courses

### MATH120W: Quantitative Reasoning

Quantitative Reasoning exposes students to a wide range of general mathematics. The course emphasizes and reinforces problem solving and critical thinking, along with the use of technology, as students become actively involved in solving applied problems. Topics include geometry, measurement, probability, statistics, finance, number theory and systems, functions and modeling, and selected subtopics related to the students' majors. The course has transfer course equivalency with corresponding courses at NHTI-Concord's Community College, Lakes Region Community College, and Great Bay Community College.

### MATH124W: College Algebra

In College Algebra, topics include linear, quadratic, and higher degree equations; rational, radical, exponential, and logarithmic equations; graphs of functions; models and applications of functions; systems of linear equations; matrices and conic sections; sequences and series; and trigonometry. The course has transfer course equivalency with corresponding courses at NHTI-Concord's Community College, Lakes Region Community College, and Great Bay Community College.

### MATH180W: Pre-Calculus

Pre-Calculus covers the following topics: complex numbers, analytic geometry, trigonometric identities, triangles and vectors, equations and graphs, sequences and series, exponential and logarithmic functions and equations.

### MATH214W: Statistics

Statistics includes the following topics: elementary probability, probability distributions, confidence intervals, simulation techniques, hypothesis testing, linear regression and correlation, ANOVA, non-parametric tests, and methods of obtaining, analyzing, and presenting data.

### MATH215W: Calculus I

Calculus I concentrates on limits, differentiation, and integration. It includes exponential, trigonometric, and logarithmic functions. Students apply their learning to sketching curves, finding areas and volumes, and solving problems in the physical sciences and other fields. If time permits, the course introduces differential equations.

### MATH220W: Math in Our World I

Designed for Teacher Education students, Math in Our World I introduces mathematical thought through activities and discussions of several mathematical topics, including problem solving, various number systems (Egyptian, Roman, Babylonian, Mayan), arithmetic in different bases, properties of real numbers, and operations on rational numbers. The course also covers some geometry, measurement, data, and chance. These topics give students a greater understanding of and appreciation for mathematics, especially the mathematics involved in teaching elementary school. (For Teacher Education students only, not a Liberal Arts Elective)

### MATH222W: Math in Our World II

Math in Our World II uses MATH220W as its basis for further investigation into mathematical discourse. Students engage in various activities and discussions with an emphasis on communication, problem solving, cooperative learning, and activity-based learning. The course covers mathematical content for levels K-8, with a focus on grades 4, 5, and 6. Topics include algebra, statistics, probability, and two- and three-dimensional geometry. Students solve problems using creative approaches and learn how to apply these approaches as future teachers.
