For Chapter 21. The 10th ed. of textbook added a new section 21.3 Effective Rate and APY. This material was included in section 21.2 Geometric Growth and Compound Interest of the 9th ed. and all material is coverd in 21.2 videos and lecture notes. The 10th ed. of the textbook split the material on Present Value between sections 21.5 10th ed. A Model for Savings and 21.6 10th ed. Inflation. This material is coverd in 21.5 videos and lecture notes.

The textbook for the course can be either 9th or 10th edition.

Videos and lecture notes are based on the 9th ed. textbook. The 9th or 10th edition of the textbook can be used for this course. All material covered is the same and independent of textbook editions. The course does NOT use any material/resources form the Publisher's online system LaunchPad.

## Student Resources (Publisher)

Math Applets and suggested websites are very helpful resources.

## URI General Education Course

General Education program 2016 (GE): This course fully satisfies both the general education Knowledge area A1: Scientific, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematical Disciplines (STEM) and Competency area B3: Mathematical, Statistical, or Computational Strategies (MSC).
General education program 2001 - 2015 (MQ): This course satisfies the general education requirement for Mathematical and Quantitative Reasoning.

## Course Description

LEC: (3 crs.) Introduces students to the spirit of mathematics and its applications. Emphasis is on development of reasoning ability as well as manipulative techniques. (Lec. 3/Online) Not open to students with credit in MTH 106 or MTH 109 and not for major credit in mathematics. (MQ)/(GE)

## Course Goals

The goal of this course is to prepare you for the mathematical and analytical aspects of the world around you, and to help you develop a stronger, deeper mathematical knowledge. This course is intended for students majoring in the liberal arts or other fields that do not have a specific mathematical requirement.

There is help available from the Academic Enhancement Center (AEC). The AEC offers three types of help: Supplemental Instruction (SI), Tutoring (both walk-in and appointment-based types), and academic coaching. For more information on AEC services, study tips, and SI session, visit the AEC website at http://web.uri.edu/aec/ .
