Math Structures II. A study of the fundamental structure of mathematics for non-mathematics majors. Topics include: number theory, probability, statistics and graphing, and geometric concepts including properties of standard shapes and area and volume formulas. No major or minor credit in mathematics. Prerequisite: Math1513 or Math 2213. Credit: 3 hours

This course will be presented from a lecture-demonstration point of view. The textbook will be the basis for material to be covered and the student will be responsible for reading all assigned material and working those problems selected by the instructor.
At least five fifty minute exams will be given during the semester. The lowest test score prior to the final will be dropped. Students may NOT drop the final. These will determine 66 2/3% of a student’s grade. Daily grades will be taken on a class period basis, and will determine the remaining 33 1/3% of the grade. VI. GRADING: The following grade scale will be used to determined a letter grade: 90%-100%----A 80%-89%----B 70%-79%----C 60%-69%----D Below 60%--F VII. ATTENDANCE POLICY: Attendance is expected and roll will be taken most class periods. Experience shows that those students who do not attend regularly tend to do poorly in class. Students may be administratively dropped at the instructor’s discretion. VIII. MAKE-UP EXAMINATIONS The student is expected to take all examinations at the specified time and date. No make-up tests will be given without PRIOR APPROVAL of the instructor. If a student misses an exam without prior approval it will be dropped as the lowest test. If another test is missed it will be recorded as a zero. Homework is expected to be turned in the class period after assigned but can be turned no later than the test. Must show all work on homework to receive grade! Homework for the final can be turned in no later than the Friday prior to finals week.
