Courses will be held in-person on our campus in Newport, RI.
MTH170: Concepts in Mathematics (3 Credits)
Fulfills Core Requirement in Mathematics
This course stresses the breadth of mathematics both continuous and
discrete, probabilistic as well as deterministic, computational and
conceptual while providing students with tools needed to
investigate, explore and understand the thematic connections that
exist between discipline-based courses. Students investigate
appropriate mathematical subject matter drawn from areas such as
graphs and networks, the concept of change, combinatorics and
probability, modern algebra, number theory, and personal finance.
In addition to considering mathematical concepts that are the
foundations of these areas in mathematics, students investigate
applications of mathematics.
MTH172: Quantitative Methods for Business (3 Credits)
Fulfills Core Requirement in Mathematics
Students study some of the great achievements and concepts in the
discipline of mathematics along with their use in the analysis and
solution of business problems. Students study the mathematics of
finance, decision analysis, project management, and demand
forecasting. Students study and apply the mathematical concepts
related to expected value decision making and linear programming.
Students also study exponential, trend adjusted, and seasonal
forecasting as well as quantitative financial concepts such as
interest, discounts, annuities, and present value analysis.
STA173: Statistical Methods (3 Credits)
This course will address a broad spectrum of fundamental statistics
concepts. The topics include exploratory data analysis, basic
probability distributions, sampling distributions, interval
estimations, hypothesis testing, and significance testing
(P-Values) with single, paired and two-sample problems.
