Course Information and Descriptions
MCS 240
Computer Organization
3 Hours
and Architecture (3-0)
This course is designed to fulfill the requirements established by the
Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) for its Computer
Organization and Architecture course. Topics include computer
structure, machine language, assembly language principles,
addressing techniques, macros, program segmentation and linkage.
Extensive time commitment required in computer lab.
Prerequisite: MCS 142 (C or better)
Course fee
Mathematics (MTH)
Engineering, Math and Physical Sciences Division,
Room T102, (847) 543-2044
MTH 101
Elementary Concepts
of Mathematics (Variable)
1-4 Hours
Basic principles of arithmetic: fractions, decimals, ratios,
proportions, percent, very basic algebra, descriptive graphs and basic
statistics from a calculator based perspective.
Note: This course does not apply to any associate degree or career
certificate. For students required to complete MTH 115 or MTH 117,
basic algebra readiness is better demonstrated by completing MTH
114. A specific graphing calculator is required for this course.
Contact the EMPS division office for a referral or additional
information.
Prerequisite: Score of 34 or higher on the arithmetic portion of the
Math Placement Test. A student who scores below 34 on the
arithmetic portion of the Math Placement Test should meet with a
counselor to discuss options.
May be taken four times, but any topic only once
MTH 102 Basic Algebra (4-0)
4 Hours
This developmental course is the first course in the algebra sequence.
Basic algebra topics include, but are not limited to: expressions,
linear equations and functions with graphing, exponents, basic
polynomial operations, and factoring. Modeling and problem solving
will be introduced throughout the course.
Note: This course does not apply to any associate degree or career
certificate program. A specific graphing calculator is required for the
course. Contact the EMPS division office for details.
Prerequisite: MTH 101 (C or better) or Basic Algebra Readiness
which includes an appropriate score on the Math Placement Test or
Math ACT of 17 or higher.
MTH 104 Geometry (4-0)
4 Hours
This course covers the fundamental concepts of geometry for
students who lack credit in one year of high school geometry with a
grade of C or better or for students who need a review of the subject
matter. The course includes the concepts of undefined terms, axioms
and postulates, and theorems. Topics also include: construction,
locus, and properties of lines, angles, polygons (with emphasis on
triangles and quadrilaterals), and circles. The writing of proofs
(deductive and indirect) and problem solving are integrated
throughout the course.
Note: This course does not apply to any associate degree or
certificate.
Prerequisite: MTH 102 (C or better) or appropriate score on Math
Placement Test or Math ACT of 22 or higher.
MTH 106 Intermediate Algebra A (4-0)
4 Hours
This developmental course is primarily intended for students who
intend on enrolling in MTH 140, MTH 141, or MTH 222. This
course also serves as the first course for students in a yearlong
option (MTH 106 and MTH 107) to master Intermediate Algebra.
Intermediate Algebra A topics include, but are not limited to, systems
of equations, exponential and logarithmic expressions; equations and
functions that are quadratic, rational, and radical. Modeling and
problem solving will be introduced throughout the course.
Note: This course does not apply to any associate degree or career
certificate program. Successful completion (C or better) of both
MTH 106 and MTH 107 is equivalent to successfully completing
MTH 108 Intermediate Algebra. Credit will not be given in MTH
106 to those with prior credit in MTH 108. A specific graphing
calculator is required for the course. Contact the EMPS division
office for details.
Prerequisite: MTH 102 (C or better) or appropriate score on Math
Placement Test or Math ACT of 22 or higher.
MTH 107 Intermediate Algebra B (3-0)
3 Hours
This developmental course is a continuation of MTH 106
Intermediate Algebra A. Intermediate Algebra B further develops the
topics of MTH 106. Other Intermediate Algebra B topics include, but
are not limited to, polynomial inequalities, inverses; equations and
functions that are exponential and logarithmic. Modeling and
problem solving will be introduced throughout the course.
Note: This course does not apply to any associate degree or career
certificate program. Successful completion (C or better) of both
MTH 106 and MTH 107 is equivalent to successfully completing
MTH 108 Intermediate Algebra. Credit will not be given in MTH
107 to those with prior credit in MTH 108. A specific graphing
calculator is required for the course. Contact the EMPS division
office for details.
Prerequisite: MTH 106 (C or better)
MTH 108 Intermediate Algebra (5-0)
5 Hours
This developmental course is the second course in the algebra
sequence that further develops the concepts of basic algebra.
Intermediate algebra topics include, but are not limited to:
polynomial inequalities, systems of equations and inequalities;
quadratic, rational, radical, exponential and logarithmic equations
and functions. Modeling and problem solving will be introduced
throughout the course.
Note: This course does not apply to any associate degree or career
certificate program. A specific graphing calculator is required for the
course. Contact the EMPS division office for details.
Prerequisite: MTH 102 (B or better) or appropriate score on the
Math Placement Test or Math ACT of 22 or higher.
MTH 114 Applied Mathematics I (3-0)
3 Hours
This course covers the basic principles of mathematics, with
application to problems encountered in various industries. Review of
fractions, decimals, ratios, proportions, and percent are covered.
Introductory algebra, practical geometry, measuring systems,
precision, accuracy, and scientific notation are also covered.
Note: For students required to complete MTH 115 or MTH 117,
basic algebra readiness is better demonstrated by taking MTH 114. A
specific calculator is required for this course. Contact EMPS division
office for details.
Prerequisite: Score of 34 or higher on the arithmetic portion of the
math placement test. A student who scores below 34 on the
arithmetic portion of the math placement test should meet with a
counselor to discuss options.
