Goals: MTH 107 covers
concepts and processes of modern mathematics concerned with sets, the theory of
probability, and statistics. MTH 107 is not open to math majors. It fulfills 3 credits toward the MQ general
education requirements.
Students
who have signed up for MTH107 should know basic concepts like adding fractions,
laws of exponents, the equation of a line, etc. These topics will not be
covered in MTH107.
Please see your instructor at the earliest convenience if you have any
questions about this.
