```MATH 132 (3 credits)
Elementary Geometry

This course is designed for students who did not have
geometry in high school. It covers plane geometry topics,
which include basic concepts, parallel lines, triangles,
quadrilaterals, and circles. Theorems and postulates
are included but emphasis is on measurement and
constructions. This course is intended to substitute for
Technical Mathematics II for those students who are not
required to take Principles of Physics. It covers the practical
geometry that is used in construction majors.
Prerequisites: MATH 126 or MATH 137

MATH 136 (3 credits)
Technical Mathematics II

This course covers solving linear and quadratic equations,
functions, graphing linear quadratic equations, polynomials,
solving trigonometric ratios, solving right triangles and
interpreting basic statistics.
Prerequisites: MATH 126 or MATH 137

MATH 137 (3 credits)
Intermediate Algebra

This course reviews the structure and use of algebra
through a combination of topics including polynomials, firstdegree equations, quadratic equations, exponents, radicals,
and systems of linear equations. Graphing first and seconddegree equations is emphasized.
Prerequisites: Satisfactory score on the math placement
test or DMAT 030 Introduction to Algebra with C or higher

MATH 141 (3 credits)
Trigonometry

triangles using the Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines,
and the graphs of the trigonometric functions.
Prerequisites: MATH 137

MATH 150 (3 credits)
Elementary Statistics

Covers measures of central tendency and variability;
probability and normal curve; and sampling and hypothesis
testing. Students need to possess mathematical skills
necessary to do calculations and derivation of basic
formulas.

MATH 207 (4 credits)
Pre-Calculus

Designed to prepare students for continuation into MATH
213: Calculus. Develops the concepts and proficiencies
necessary to work successfully in the areas of elementary
functions, theory of equations, inequalities, trigonometry
and analytic geometry.
Prerequisites: Satisfactory score on the math placement
test or Math 141

MATH 213 (4 credits)
Calculus

Introduces the concepts and techniques of calculus
beginning with functions and limits. Major emphasis is on
theory and applications of the derivative, antiderivative,
indefinite integral and definite integral, including introductory
calculus of trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic
functions.
Prerequisites: Satisfactory score on the math placement
test or MATH 141 or MATH207 and instructor permission.

This course shows how mathematics can be applied in
a physical setting. The theoretical foundations will be
established and explored but emphasis will be placed on
practical applications. Highlighted are the trigonometric
functions used to solve right triangles, solving oblique

BIO 210 (4 credits)
General Biology I

This course explores the processes fundamental to life.
Laboratory activities reinforce classroom theoretical content.
Topics covered include biochemical principles, cell structure
and function, intracellular and intercellular transport and
communication, metabolic pathways including cellular
respiration and photosynthesis, cell reproduction, Mendelian

genetics, inheritance patterns and laws, DNA replication
and repair, RNA transcription and processing, protein
synthesis, regulation of gene expression, biotechnology and
key structural and reproductive characteristics of viruses,
bacteria, and protists.
Prerequisites: High school biology and chemistry strongly
recommended.
Students must be matriculated in an approved TSCT
program of study or obtain instructor permission.

CHEM 100 (3 credits)
Conceptual Chemistry

This course explores inorganic chemistry principles at the
conceptual level. Intermittent in-class laboratory activities
reinforce theoretical content. Special emphasis is placed on
relating chemical principles to industry, the environment, and
everyday events. Topics covered include the atomic structure
