About This Course
This course, Math 102, covers a broad range of mathematical topics and provides you with a solid overview of concepts that non-mathematics majors need to know. Whether you need to review some key concepts or learn them for the first time, instructors Luke Winspur, Jennifer Scharf and Kathryn Maloney use easy-to-follow examples to take concepts like the Pythagorean theorem and standard deviation and make them accessible.
Though it's designed for students who don't intend to major in mathematics or hard sciences, Math 102 contains foundational knowledge that can prepare you for advanced math courses.
You can take all the lessons in this course in sequence, or just focus on the concepts you need to learn and skip the ones you don't. Course topics covered in Math 102 include: logic, probability and statistics, real number systems, functions and their graphs and more.
All topics are broken down into bite-sized videos and our self-grading online quizzes allow you to see how much you've learned and what you may need to review.
