Foundations of Mathematics (MAT 103A)

This course is to give the students an understanding of the foundations of math. Topics include sets, logic, number bases and the structure of the number system from naturals to the reals, solving multiple step problems, and teaching to one's peers. This course does not satisfy the MAT 100 prerequisite requirement for MAT 125, MAT 130, MAT 131, MAT 140, or MAT 161. MAT 103A covers the same topics as MAT 103 by meeting 4 hours a week for 3 credits. It is important to note that the students will pay for four hours, but only receive three credits. NOTE: Check with a counselor regarding transfer equivalency.
