MATH 100  Introduction to Contemporary Mathematics                3 credits
Students will be introduced to many topics from contemporary mathematics. These are especially of interest to students in the social and information sciences. Topics include networks and graphs, the traveling salesman problem, scheduling linear programming, social choice, voting systems game theory, fair division, patterns, tilings form, similarity and symmetry. Prerequisite: A suitable score on LRC algebra placement exam.

MATH 106  Algebra and Elementary Functions                        3 credits
An introduction to the basic techniques and functions of mathematics. This course is especially recommended for those students who need to brush up due to a shaky high school preparation or for those who havenít had a mathematics course in several years. Topics include linear equations and inequalities; quadratic equations; polynomials; and rational functions and their inverses, including the exponential and the logarithm. Note: Not open to students who have passed MATH 150 or above. Not transferrable to other Maryland public institutions for college-level credit. Prerequisite: Qualifying score on LRC algebra placement exam.

MATH 426  Introduction to Math Software Packages:                 2 credits
The student will become familiar with the usage of Matlab, an advanced numerical linear algebra package that is widely used in teaching and research. Matlab is an interactive tool for high- performance numerical computations, visualization and programming. Matlab performs complex matrix algebra, computes matrix factorizations (such as LU, QR and SVD) and eigenvalues, solves linear systems of equations, provides extensive 2-D and 3-D visualization tools, and possesses programming tools used in scripts and functions. Prerequisites: MATH 152, 221 and CMSC 201, or permission of instructor.
