applied to real life situations. Topics may include personal finance,
statistics, elections, symmetry, and scheduling. Some of the
applications may be how the site of the Olympic Games is chosen, why
spirals occur in nature, and how statistical data is collected and how
it can be used to mislead the public. The course is designed for
elementary education majors, fine arts majors, humanities majors, and
those social and behavioral science majors whose further courses do not

**Comments:** Majors
within the College of Fine Arts, the College of Humanities, and some
majors within the College of Social & Behavioral Science and the
College of Education can use this course to satisfy their math
requirement. This course cannot be used as a prerequisite for any other
mathematics courses (except Math 302A for Elementary Education.) If you
think you might change your major to one that does not allow Math 105,
you should consider Math 112 instead.
