Math 1101: Calculus Preparation

Instructor: Quincy Loney: 255-8637, MT 212, qel2@cornell.edu

Objective: Math 1101 is a preparatory course for Math 1106 and Math 1110. Classes meet two times per week for 50 minutes. There are no recitations. Structure of class is both lecture and active student participation.

Credit: Math 1101 is a 1-credit course (letter grade only). This course includes both precollege level mathematics and introduces topics from Math 1106 and Math 1110. Individual colleges should determine whether this course can be applied towards their college’s quantitative reasoning requirements.

Description: Calculus Preparation introduces a variety of topics of algebra and trigonometry, which have applications in various disciplines. Emphasis is on the development of linear, power, trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic functions. Students will have a better understanding of the behavior of these functions including asymptotic behavior and limits and their application to calculus, because of the strong emphasis on graphing. Calculus topics include limits, continuity, derivatives and extrema. Application of these mathematical ideas will be addressed in problem solving activities.

Math 1102: Introduction to Statistical Methods

Instructor: Quincy Loney: 255-8637, MT 212, qel2@cornell.edu

Objective: Math 1102 is a preparatory course for Math 1105 and applied introductory statistics courses. Classes meet two times per week for 50 minutes. There are no recitations. Structure of class is both lecture and active student participation

Credit: Math 1102 is a 1-credit course (letter grade only). This course includes both precollege level mathematics and introduces topics from Math 1105 and applied introductory statistics. Individual colleges should determine whether this course can be applied towards their college’s quantitative reasoning requirements.

Description: Math 1102 introduces a variety of topics of algebra and prepares students for statistics and finite mathematics. Emphasis is on the development of linear, power, exponential and logarithmic functions and their applications to curve fitting. The course includes basic probability laws, descriptive statistics, linear regression and probability distributions. The probability and statistics content of the course is similar to 1/3 of the content covered in Math 1105 and introductory level statistics courses.
