We like to call this course  Math Bootcamp. It is required for EGGS majors and designed to give you an introduction to the math concepts you will need for 90% of a career in our field: statistics, algebra, and trigonometry. It is application driven, and ALL of the topics will be seen again in one or another upper level EGGS courses. Many of the topics are not covered in any other mathematics course, which is why we do it here.
Of course, we'd like you to take more math. It will only help you in your career or graduate school.
