Summer Session 2019

CHE 128/FYSC 128: Basic Chemical Concepts (only Summer Session II)

This course develops the fundamental concepts of chemistry and basic quantitative reasoning. This course is suitable to prepare students to take General Chemistry I (CHE130 or CHE 136).
CHE 129 and MAT 130/FYSM 130 or higher are a co-requisite for this class.

CHE 129/FYSC 129: Basic Chemical Concepts Laboratory (only Summer Session II)

Laboratory course to be taken in conjunction with CHE128.
CHE 128/FYSC 129 and MAT 130/FYSM 130 or higher are a co-requisite for this class

MAT 94/FYSM 94: Basic Algebra

The objective of this course is to increase the students' competence in working with ordinary arithmetic, using a large variety of practical problems and situations from basic sciences as motivation.

NOTE: This class will take place online in both summer sessions.   

MAT 95/FYSM 95: Introductory Algebra

An introduction to functions, linear equations, linear inequalities, absolute values, systems of linear equations, exponents, and polynomials.
MAT 094/FYSM 094 or placement is a prerequisite for this course.

MAT 100/FYSM 100: Introduction to Quantitative Reasoning

An introduction to the algebra needed for quantitative reasoning with a focus on functions and modeling. This course emphasizes the applications of elementary algebra and the use of functions to model and analyze real-world situations. Topics include functions from graphical, tabular, and symbolic points of view and models using linear, quadratic, power, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Graphing technology is used extensively. This course is prerequisite to LSP 120 and is intended for students continuing on to LSP 120. This course is not recommended for students whose plan of study includes calculus.
MAT 094/FYSM 094 or placement is a prerequisite for this course.

MAT 101/FYSM 101: Intermediate Algebra

Functions, factoring, rational expressions, roots, radicals, quadratic equations, quadratic inequalities. Course meets for an additional 1 hour lab session each week for enrichment and problem solving.
MAT 095/FYSM 095 or placement is a prerequisite for this course.

MAT 130/FYSM 130: Precalculus

Functions and their graphs, exponential and logarithmic functions, inverse functions, polynomial and rational functions.
MAT 101/FYSM 101 or placement is a prerequisite for this class.

WRD 102/FYSW 102: Basic Writing II (Only Summer Session II)

WRD 102 prepares students for college-level writing by examining composing processes and the way writers function in a community of other writers and readers. The course helps students increase the effectiveness of their writing practices and develop a sense of confidence in themselves as writers. The course is ideal for students with less writing experience or those who want more exposure before taking WRD 103.

Winter Intersession 2018

Functions, factoring, rational expressions, roots, radicals, quadratic equations, quadratic inequalities. Course meets for an additional 1 hour lab session each week for enrichment and problem solving.
MAT 095/FYSM 095 or placement is a prerequisite for this course.

MAT 130/FYSM 130: Precalculus

Functions and their graphs, exponential and logarithmic functions, inverse functions, polynomial and rational functions.
MAT 101/FYSM 101 or placement is a prerequisite for this class.
