Office: Lippit Hall 101G,   tel: 874.4451
Class Schedule: MTuWTh 10.00 -- 11.45am, Lippitt Hall 204

Description:   The primary aim of MTH 111 is to prepare students for further study in mathematics, basic sciences, or engineering by providing an introduction to functions, properties of functions and various types of functions. MTH 111 is an intense preparation and lays the groundwork for the Calculus sequence at URI. Thus MTH 111 is aimed at the student for whom it will be the first of an important series of courses rather than a last math course.
Non-URI students should be sure to have prior approval from their own schools to guarantee that credits will transfer.
