MATH 1500 - Introduction to Mathematical Thought

Hours: 4
A first-time experience with true mathematical thinking, this course offers a challenging and intriguing experience. Unlike other introductory courses, we explore the “why” of mathematics, instead of the more traditional “how.” Interesting and fundamental results from calculus, set theory, and abstract algebra are explored as are possible careers available to students who excel in the kinds of analytic thinking required by mathematics.
Prerequisites: MATH 1250 with a C- or better; or ACT Math composite score of 27 or higher; or ACT Math composite score of 660 or higher; or permission of instructor.
