Mathematics: Calculus, Statistics, and Logic Courses

Approved courses introduce students to or extend their knowledge of precalculus, calculus, discrete mathematics, probability, statistics and/or data analysis. Courses may be offered in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and in other departments that have expertise in quantitative reasoning and data analysis and that offer appropriate courses, particularly in statistics or discrete structures.

A student who has achieved a score of 85 or above on the Regents “Math B” Exam (former “Mathematics Course III” Exam) or on a recognized standardized examination indicating readiness to enter precalculus will be considered to have fulfilled this requirement.

Learning Objectives for Mathematics: Calculus, Statistics, and Logic

Students will demonstrate:

  1. the ability to decipher, interpret, and draw conclusions from formal or mathematical models such as formulas, graphs, and/or truth tables, and an understanding of the concepts used in such models
  2. the ability to formulate and/or represent problems in manners appropriate to mathematical, statistical, or logical analysis
  3. the ability to employ appropriate mathematical computations, statistical techniques, or logical methods to solve problems and/or draw conclusions from data
  4. the ability to evaluate results and recognize the limits of methods and/or models within the context of the discipline, as appropriate
