The new Math 100-110 sequence was designed by the math department to accomplish two things: 1) offer students a two-semester sequence of courses that would allow students to master the same academic content one would find in the one-semester college algebra course Math 140; and 2) do so in a way that recognizes that not all students arrive on campus prepared to do college-level work in mathematics. Though a student can earn college credit by taking Math 100, only Math 110 satisfies the general education requirement. Students may not enroll in Math 110 without first completing Math 100 with at least a grade of C.
Math 100 was offered for the very first time in Fall 2011. In this colloquium talk, Curtis and Barbara will report on the department's first outing with this course.
The University of Tennessee, Martin, Department of Mathematics and Statistics holds colloquium talks several times each semester. These talks are open to the general public, and we encourage all interested parties to attend. The colloquia are intended to provide a friendly, informal, and scholarly forum for presenting and discussing topics relevant to mathematics and statistics.
