Math 120 SLO and CMO

MATH 120 SLO

  1. Students will be able to solve a linear programming problem using the geometric approach.
  2. Students will be able to solve a binomial probability distribution problem.

MATH 120 CMO

  1. Apply techniques of mathematical modeling to problems from business, economics and social sciences using formulas, graphs, and systems of equations. 
  2. Apply linear programming techniques for maximizing and minimizing linear functions.
  3. Apply formulas for calculating interest, present value, annuities, and sinking funds, as well as determine payments and lump sum deposits. 
  4. Translate large amounts of real life data into mathematical models involving matrices, and use matrix theory to manipulate data. 
  5. Propose appropriate counting models involving sets, permutations, and combinations for situations where straightforward counting is impractical. 
  6. Formulate probabilistic models and calculate the probability of various events. 
  7. Develop models that use Markov chains to study patterns for the future and to make predictions. 
  8. Analyze, organize, and interpret numerical data.
