An introduction to mathematics for business and economics students using examples from business to motivate mathematical techniques. Necessary mathematical terms and concepts are developed, but emphasis is on applications to business with sufficient theory to support applications. Topics: algebraic functions, mathematics of finance, analysis of functions, differential and integral calculus.

Prerequisite(s): Foundations of Mathematics 30 or Pre-Calculus 30 (Pre-Calculus 30 preferred); or MATH 102
Note(s): Students can have credit for only one of MATH 104, MATH 110, MATH 121, MATH 123, MATH 125, or MATH 176. Students without credit for MATH 102 are strongly recommended to take the Math Placement Test to assess their readiness for MATH 121. Students who score below 60% on the Math Placement Test should take MATH 102 before taking MATH 121. More information is available at
