2016-17 Course Catalog - 98


MATH 132 (3 credits)
Elementary Geometry

This course is designed for students who did not have geometry
in high school. It covers plane geometry topics, which include
basic concepts, parallel lines, triangles, quadrilaterals, and
circles. Theorems and postulates are included but emphasis is
on measurement and constructions. This course is intended to
substitute for Technical Mathematics II for those students who are
not required to take Principles of Physics. It covers the practical
geometry that is used in construction majors.
Prerequisites: MATH 126 or MATH 137

MATH 136 (3 credits)
Technical Mathematics II

This course covers solving linear and quadratic equations,
functions, graphing linear quadratic equations, polynomials,
solving trigonometric ratios, solving right triangles and
interpreting basic statistics.

MATH 213 (4 credits)
Calculus

Introduces the concepts and techniques of calculus beginning with
functions and limits. Major emphasis is on theory and applications
of the derivative, anti-derivative, indefinite integral and definite
integral, including introductory calculus of trigonometric,
exponential and logarithmic functions.
Prerequisites: Satisfactory score on the math placement test or
MATH 141 or MATH207 and instructor permission.

HEALTH
HEAL 106 (1 credit)
Fitness and Wellness

Prerequisites: MATH 126 or MATH 137

Offers information that enables students to take control of their
personal health and lifestyle habits so as to make a continuous,
deliberate effort to stay healthy and to achieve well-being. Students
learn to develop personal lifetime programs that promote fitness,
preventative health care, and personal wellness.

MATH 137 (3 credits)
Intermediate Algebra

HEAL 111 (1 credit)
Basic First Aid

This course reviews the structure and use of algebra through
a combination of topics including polynomials, first-degree
equations, quadratic equations, exponents, radicals, and systems
of linear equations. Graphing first and second-degree equations
is emphasized.
Prerequisites: Satisfactory score on the math placement test or
DMAT 030 Introduction to Algebra with C or higher

MATH 141 (3 credits)
Trigonometry

This course shows how mathematics can be applied in a physical
setting. The theoretical foundations will be established and
explored but emphasis will be placed on practical applications.
Highlighted are the trigonometric functions used to solve right
triangles, solving oblique triangles using the Law of Sines and the
Law of Cosines, and the graphs of the trigonometric functions.

Provides individuals in the workplace with the knowledge and
skills necessary to recognize and to provide basic first aid care for
injuries and sudden illnesses until advanced medical personnel
can arrive and take over assistance. Upon successful completion
of the course, each participant will receive an American Red Cross
Universal Certificate (indicating First Aid) that will be valid for
three years.

SCIENCE: BIOLOGY (BIO); CHEMISTRY
(CHEM); PHYSICAL SCIENCE (PHYS), AND
NATURAL SCIENCE (SCI)
BIO 210 (4 credits)
General Biology I

MATH 150 (3 credits)
Elementary Statistics

This course explores the processes fundamental to life. Laboratory
activities reinforce classroom theoretical content. Topics covered
include biochemical principles, cell structure and function,
intracellular and intercellular transport and communication,
metabolic pathways including cellular respiration and
photosynthesis, cell reproduction, Mendelian genetics, inheritance
patterns and laws, DNA replication and repair, RNA transcription
and processing, protein synthesis, regulation of gene expression,
biotechnology and key structural and reproductive characteristics
of viruses, bacteria, and protists.

MATH 207 (4 credits)
Pre-Calculus

Prerequisites: High school biology and chemistry strongly
recommended.

Prerequisites: MATH 137

Covers measures of central tendency and variability; probability
and normal curve; and sampling and hypothesis testing. Students
need to possess mathematical skills necessary to do calculations
and derivation of basic formulas.

Designed to prepare students for continuation into MATH 215:
Calculus. Develops the concepts and proficiencies necessary to
work successfully in the areas of elementary functions, theory of
equations, inequalities, trigonometry and analytic geometry.
Prerequisites: MATH 137 and MATH 141 or satisfactory score on
the math placement test

98 * Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology

Students must be matriculated in an approved TSCT program of
study or obtain instructor permission.
