# Undergraduate Programs

Mathematics provides a powerful language for expressing and answering questions about the world around us. The evolution of communication and technology has made that language part of our daily lives.**Objective #3** of ISU's General Education requirements recognize the importance of mathematics in a university education. Upon completion of a course in this category, a student is able to demonstrate the following competencies:

- Read, interpret, and communicate mathematical concepts.
- Represent and interpret information/data.
- Select, execute and explain appropriate strategies/procedures when solving mathematical problems.
- Apply quantitative reasoning to draw and support appropriate conclusions.

**Courses that satisfy G.E. Objective #3 are:**

**MATH 1123 or 1123P**, Mathematics in Modern Society, 3 cr.

**MATH 1127**, The Language of Mathematics, 3 cr.

**MATH 1130**, Finite Mathematics, 3 cr.

**MATH 1143 or 1143P**, College Algebra, 3 cr.

**MATH 1147**, Precalculus, 5 cr.

* ***MATH 1153 or 1153P**, Introduction to Statistics, 3 cr.

**MATH 1160**, Applied Calculus, 3 cr.

** MATH 1170**, Calculus I, 4 cr.

**MATH 2256**, Structure of Arithmetic for Elementary School Teachers, 3 cr.

**MATH 2257**, Structure of Geometry and Probability for Elementary School Teachers, 3 cr.
