Mathematics & Statistics

**Prerequisites:** C (2.0) or better in MAC 2281, **or** C (2.0) or better in MAC 2311.

**Course Description:** The course meets for approximately 55 hours during a 15-week semester. Successful completion of the course merits 4 semester hours of credit and provides sufficient background for either MAC 2283 (Engineering Calculus III) or MAC 2313 (Calculus III). The schedule outlined below allows time for four midterm exams plus a cumulative final exam, which are the norms for this course. (** Note:** A “lecture” is defined as a 50-minute time period.)

**Foundations of Knowledge & Learning:** This course is part of the University of South Floridaâ€™s Foundations of Knowledge and Learning (FKL) Core Curriculum. It is certified for Mathematics and Quantitative Reasoning and will meet the following four dimensions: Critical Thinking, Inquiry-based Learning, Scientific Processes, and Quantitative Literacy. Students enrolled in this course will be expected to participate in the USF General Education assessment effort. This might involve answering questions that measure quantitative reasoning skills (but are not directly related to the course), responding to surveys, or participating in other measurements designed to assess the FKL Core Curriculum learning outcomes.
