# Undergraduate Programs

Mathematics provides a powerful language for expressing and answering questions about the world around us. The evolution of communication and technology has made that language part of our daily lives.**Objective #3** of ISU's General Education requirements recognize the importance of mathematics in a university education. Upon completion of a course in this category, a student is able to demonstrate the following competencies:

- Read, interpret, and communicate mathematical concepts.
- Represent and interpret information/data.
- Select, execute and explain appropriate strategies/procedures when solving mathematical problems.
- Apply quantitative reasoning to draw and support appropriate conclusions.

Courses that satisfy Objective #3 are:

**MATH 1123, Mathematics in Modern Society, 3 cr.**

*Prerequisite: MATH 0025*

**MATH 1127, The Language of Mathematics, 3 cr.**
