MATH 100 is a survey of important elementary concepts in algebra, logical structure, numeration systems, and probability, designed to acquaint non-specialists with examples of mathematical reasoning, and to develop an appreciation and understanding of their historical development and of the relationship of mathematics to the modern world.
Note: Although MATH 100 fulfills the UHM BA general education core requirements, it is not acceptable as a prerequisite to QM 252, or MATH 135 or higher level mathematics courses.
Upon successful completion of MATH 100, the student should be able to:
- Use basic techniques in symbolic logic to draw deductive conclusions in simple situations.
- Solve some problems in finance (compounded interest, annuity, installment payment, etc.) using hand calculators.
- Understand concepts in permutations and combinations, and their applications.
- Understand basic concepts of probability and statistics.
