MATH 125 - Integrated Science and Mathematics

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: Consent of instructor
This course is designed to prepare incoming science and mathematics students in the STREAMS summer bridge program for the mathematical needs of their first-year coursework. In this course, students will study precalculus-level mathematics in the context of how it arises in the sciences. Topics include measurement, uncertainty, and responsible use of data; units and dimensional analysis; linear modeling and rates of change; linearization of exponential, logarithmic, power and other relationships, principles of trigonometry; and effective communication of quantitative meaning in writing, graphs, and data tables. Offered summer only. NOTE: This course is not a substitute for precalculus (MATH 140/150) and does not satisfy prerequisites for any MATH course.
