The information presented here is intended to describe the
course goals for current and prospective students as well as others who are
interested in our courses. It is not intended to replace the instructional
policies and course materials presented in class.
The following information applies to the Newark
campus. For information about
this course offered at the satellite campuses, see the contacts at the bottom
of this web page.
Every effort is made to update this information on a routine
basis. However, if you have questions about enrollment, purchasing materials,
and prerequisite skills, please check with your advisor or instructor.
The most updated Course Description can be found at the UD Course Description Search. Information on the sections currently offered can be found at the UD Course Search. Additional information about Math 114 offered in the recent semesters can be found in the Math 114 Departmental Syllabus.
Additional Course Description:
114, which fulfills the university mathematics requirement, is designed for
liberal arts majors who currently do not intend to take additional courses in
mathematics. For several weeks, the course will focus on statistics.
Descriptive statistics, the normal distribution, probability, and regression will
be studied. The purpose of this unit is to provide the student with an
understanding of some of the tools used to analyze data and make informed
decisions in the workplace, in research, and in everyday situations. The
remainder of the course emphasizes algebra, the application of mathematics, and
mathematical modeling. Students will use various functions to model and analyze
data. The connections between algebraic and graphical representations of
functions and statistical concepts will be stressed throughout the course.
An important goal of this course is to illustrate the importance of mathematics in a variety of fields. Fields such as art, political science, criminology, psychology, and anthropology are just a few examples where mathematics is routinely integrated. Students should be aware that even though they may currently be studying subjects that are not primarily mathematical or statistical, they may encounter these mathematical procedures and ideas in a variety of disciplines or in their career.
Appropriate prerequisite skills and understandings for this course are required for success in this course. Details are discussed in the course prerequisites below. Students who need to review algebra should register for Math 010 Intermediate Algebra.
Course Content: The following list illustrates the topics intended for coverage in a typical semester. Your instructor may cover these topics in a different order or may add topics if necessary.
Required Math Placement Test Level: 45 or above, or a grade of C- or better in Math 010. For more information regarding math placement please see the Math Placement Exam webpage.
General Syllabus: MATH114 Syllabus
Additional Prerequisite Discussion: It
is assumed that Math 114 students have a basic knowledge of arithmetic and
algebra. This includes operations with signed numbers, operations with
fractions, basic factoring, operations with polynomials and rational
expressions, radicals, working with linear and quadratic functions (including associated
equations), and linear inequalities. Students who lack this background should
consider changing their enrollment to Math 010 (Intermediate
Algebra). Experience has shown those students who enroll without these important
algebra skills and understandings will not succeed. For more information,
please see the Math 010 Intermediate Algebra course web site.
custom textbook that incorporates pertinent sections from the two textbooks
listed below – one statistics and one college algebra - is
required. Students should wait until the first day of class to ensure the
appropriate textbook and other course materials are purchased.
Brase and Brase, Understanding Basic Statistics, Houghton Mifflin.
Larson, Hostetler, Hodgkins, College Algebra: Concepts and Models, Houghton Mifflin.
Calculator Requirement: A graphing
calculator is required for this course as it is an important tool for exploring
and understanding the mathematical concepts in this course. The homework
assignments and exams contain problems that require its use. It is the
student's responsibility to have access to a working calculator at all times
during the semester for all classes and during all examinations.
most cases, during the fall and spring semesters, the course meets three hours
per week in either a MWF or Tues/Thur course format. Course enrollments are
usually at most 50 students per class with some very small classes during the
spring semester. Assessment activities generally include exams, quizzes, group
work or other course activities as determined by the instructor. Since this is
a multi-section class, usually three common exams and a common cumulative final
Winter/Summer semester: This course may be offered during the winter and summer sessions. Depending on the session, it may require daily course meetings or a three hour course session once a week.
Tutorial Resources: There are several campus resources that provide additional assistance.
Satellite Campus Information: Students enrolled at other campuses should contact the math faculty for the specific campus for additional information about this course.
