Math Counts!

10 credits for 16 students.  Coordinator: V. Klawitter
Discover Calculus and hone your writing and critical thinking in creative and effective ways. A good FIG for students considering mathematics or the sciences as a major. 

Students choose one of the following Calculus classes plus take COMP 101 and FY 100. These math courses each satisfy the General Education FM requirement and count for 4 credit hours. For Math course placement, consult Victoria Klawitter or an adviser from the Mathematics Department.

COMP 101-F20 Writing and Critical Thinking 4 Cr. TuTh 11:00-12:15pm Stanavage, L.
Encourages development of writing, critical thinking and the use of information resources. Addresses how language permits communication, shapes thought and changes through time. NOTE:  Plus 1 hour TBA.  Satisfies General Education FW requirement.

Choose ONE of the following three MATH courses:

MATH 141-F20 Integrated Calculus IA 4 Cr. Tu 9:30-10:45am; MWF 10:00-10:50am Miller, C.
First course of a two-semester sequence that provides mathematical background sufficient for study of calculus and integrates it with the study of calculus. Recommended for students who need a stronger preparation for Calculus I. TI-83 or compatible required. Completion of this two semester sequence is equivalent to the completion of Math 110 (Precalculus) and Math 151 (Calculus I). Satisfies General Education FM requirement.

MATH 151-F20 Calculus 1 4 Cr. Tu 9:30-10:45am; MWF 10:00-10:50am Person, L.
Continuity and differentiability of real valued algebraic and trigonometric functions of a single variable, applications and anti-differentiation. Required for mathematics majors. NOTE: T183 or equivalent graphing calculator required.  High school Precalculus or MATH 110 with a minimum grade of 2.0 or three years of high school Regents level mathematics with at least a 90 in each course recommended. Satisfies General Education FM requirement.

MATH 152-F20 Calculus 2  4 Cr. MWF 9:00-9:50am and Tu 9:30-10:45am  Ellingsen, H. Differentiation of transcendental functions, integration with applications, sequences and series. Required for Mathematics majors. Prerequisite: MATH 151 or MATH 141 and MATH 142.  NOTE:  T183 or equivalent graphing calculator required.  Satisfies General Education FM requirement.

FY 100-F20 @First Year Success Seminar 2 Cr. Tu 3:30-4:45pm Klawitter, V.
The First-Year Success Seminar (FYSS) is a two-credit course designed to accelerate students’ transition to SUNY Potsdam. FYSS provides students with the opportunity to become integrated into the life of the campus by exploring their academic and social development.  A strong emphasis is placed on critical inquiry – enhancing reading and writing, time management, and study skills.  In addition, the course provides an orientation to campus resources and services and encourages self-exploration and personal development.
