All students, regardless of background, must take BBCC’s math placement exam before being allowed to enroll in any math course.

This course will provide review and instruction in whole numbers, decimals, fractions, and problem solving. Students will learn strategies to deal with math anxiety and test taking.

Prerequisite: Appropriate placement on the BBCC math placement test or completion of Math 080. The study of basic arithmetic and algebraic concepts and operations including operations with integers, fractions, decimals and percents; order of operations, measurement, the metric system, algebraic expressions, formulas and simple linear equations.

Prerequisite: BBCC placement exam or completion of Math 094. This course includes the study of intermediate algebraic operations and concepts, and the structure and use of algebra. This includes solving, graphing, and solving applications of linear equations and systems of equations; simplifying, factoring, and solving quadratic functions, introduction to functions and models; and exponential and logarithmic functions along with applications.

Prerequisite: Appropriate scores in the BBCC Mathematics Assessment or successful completion of MPC 099 or MPC 091, 092, and 093. This course will introduce the non-math/science major to mathematical applications in a variety of disciplines.

Covers the mathematics elementary teachers are responsible for teaching at K-8 levels, including computing with whole numbers, fractions, decimals and percents; multiplicative comparisons and reasoning; ratio, rates, and proportions; negative numbers; algebra and graphing; relationships between time, distance and rate; patterns and functions.

Covers the mathematics elementary teachers are responsible for teaching at K-8 levels, including polyhedra, polygons, symmetry, tessellations, size changes, curves, curved surfaces, transformations, length, angles, area and surface area, volume, measure formulas, simulating probablistic situations; sampling; and organizing and interpreting data with one and two variables.

Prerequisite: MATH& 152 or instructor permission. This course will expand on the applications and techniques of differentiation learned in the first and second quarters. It will introduce the student to the calculus of sequences and series and the use of the MacLauren and Taylor series to approximate functions. It will introduce the student to the calculus of curvilinear functions and the concept of the vector and vector functions. It will also introduce the concept of a partial derivative and the maximization of functions given in more than one independent variable.

Prerequisite: MATH& 163 or instructor permission. An introduction to multi-variable calculus. The study of three dimensional space curves, vector-valued functions, partial derivatives, differential derivatives, multiple integration, vector fields, line integrals, Green’s and Stoke’s theorems, surface integrals, and the divergence theorem.
