Courses supporting STEM curricula

A course which demonstrates mathematics' usefulness and relevance to students' daily lives through topics such as calculating interest and understanding voting systems. The course emphasizes problem-solving skills, practical applications, probability, statistics, and the history of mathematics. MTH108 unveils the relevance of mathematics and its creative human aspect to students. This course investigates a variety of areas in which mathematics is concretely applied, in a way which is both engaging and accessible to students who do not necessarily have strong interests in the sciences.

An introduction to fundamental concepts of the physical and life sciences. Application to daily experiences and critical evaluation of science as discussed in the public domain will be emphasized. The approach will be primarily descriptive in nature, with basic mathematical principles applied to understanding relationships and expressing data derived during hands-on investigations.
