Course Description

This is the third of three courses designed to prepare students for undergraduate courses that do not require the study of calculus. The course covers: problem solving using logical reasoning and set theory, combinatorics and probability including fundamental counting principle, permutations, combinations, odds and probability of mutual exclusivity, dependent and independent events, the study of operations on and the development of solving problems involving rational expressions, polynomial functions and equations, exponential and logarithmic functions and equations, and the exploration of trigonometric graphs and using them to solve problems.

Course Details

Upon successful completion of UPG 032 - Math 2B, students will be able to:
  • Solve logical reasoning problems
  • Demonstrate effective critical thinking skills related to probability and uncertainty equations
  • Apply algebraic and graphical reasoning through the study of functions and equations 
  • Describe the role of mathematics in society
