Course Description from the Catalog: Math for Liberal Arts This course is intended as an invitation to anyone who, while not interested in developing a technical facility in calculation, is interested in gaining an appreciation of the methods and scope of mathematics. The emphasis will be on topics not usually covered in a general algebra  trigonometry sequence. The approach will be conceptual, rather than computational. This course covers various topics outside the usual algebracalculus sequence. This course is intended to help students gain an appreciation for the methods and scope of mathematics in everyday life. Possible topics include graph theory (Euler paths, Hamiltonian circuits, minimalcost spanning trees, the travelling salesperson problem), discrete probability and counting, and coding (check digits, Postnet, Soundex, error correcting codes, binary numbers, basic cryptography, etc.).
Use of Technology: We will use simple scientific calculator. Graphing calculators are not allowed.
