Mathematics LC-M (MATM)

MATM 107  Development of Mathematics  (3 credits)  

This course combines the beauty and fascination of astronomy with the logical reasoning and problem solving techniques of mathematics. Students will learn connections between science and mathematics and study real-world problem solving processes, as well as customary topics in both subjects. Students will interactively learn to use an astronomical telescope to take measurements and obtain a practical understanding of astronomy. Typical problems in astronomy will be presented to students who will then in turn learn to solve them in the mathematics portion of the course. Field trips: Hayden Planetarium. Field work: 6 - 8 sessions outside with telescopes.

Prerequisites: MAT 099 or 2 years of College Preparatory Mathematics or equivalent. Not open to Business Majors. Learning Community
