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.
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)
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/ .
Any student with a documented disability should contact your instructor early in the semester so that he or she may work out reasonable accommodations with you to support your success in this course. Students should also contact Disability Services for Students: Onlinece of Student Life, 330 Memorial Union, 874-2098. They will determine with you what accommodations are necessary and appropriate.
