MGF 1107 - Explorations in Mathematics

This course is designed for students who plan to major in fields that do not require an in-depth study of mathematics. The major topics introduced in this course are financial mathematics, graph theory, numbers and number systems, and elementary number theory. Additional topics include voting techniques, modular arithmetic, exponential growth and decay, elementary topology, and non-Euclidean geometry. Fractal geometry may be introduced. It is strongly suggested that students who plan to take MGF 1106 and MGF 1107 complete MGF 1106 first.

This course fulfills the "Gordon Rule" computation requirement and must be completed with a grade of C or higher (pursuant to State Board of Education Rule 6A-10.030).

Prerequisites: Satisfactory score on the placement test (for non-exempt students only, per Senate Bill 1720/State Board Rule 6A-10.0315)
Corequisites: None
Credit Hours: 3
Contact Hours: 3
Conditions: Effective Spring 2014, students who entered the ninth grade in a Florida public high school in the 2003-2004 school year, or any year thereafter, and earned a standard Florida high school diploma, or students who are serving as active duty members in any branch of the United States Armed Services, will not be required to take the common placement test (P.E.R.T.) or to enroll in developmental education at any Florida College System institution, including Florida State College at Jacksonville (per State Board Rule 6A-10.0315). These students shall be considered exempt from common placement testing and developmental education instruction, and may accordingly enroll directly in MAT 1033 or MGF 1106/1107, depending on their program of study requirement. For placement in any math course beyond MAT 1033, exempt students will be required to take the common placement test.
Degrees Offered: A.A., A.S.
