MTH 106 - Environmental Mathematics

4 Credits


Students explore environmental issues using the mathematics of functions and basic statistics. Techniques for working with linear and quadratic equations, polynomials, and expressions involving exponents and radicals are reviewed to cultivate students' mathematical prowess. Specific topics include explorations of measurements and units; graphs and equations of lines and quadratics; solutions to systems of equations; polynomials and radical expressions; ratios and percentages; tabular and graphical displays of data; linear, exponential, and power functions; difference equations; and statistical descriptions of data. Emphasis is placed on mathematical reasoning, skill development and problem solving in environmental contexts.
