MATH 129 : Precalculus for Management and Social Sciences

Credits: 3

Course Description: This course teaches the algebraic and conceptual skills students need to master before they are ready for MATH 134 or MATH 135. The major part of the course then involves the application of linear, quadratic, and exponential models to problems in management and economics.

Pre-Requisites: Math Placement Test or MATH 115 with a grade of B or better in the previous semester.

Comments: Students intending to take Calculus I and II (MATH 140 and 141) should take MATH 130 instead of MATH 129. Students may take MATH 130 after MATH 129, but only with the explicit permission of the department, and then only for two credits.
