Undergraduate Course Descriptions

Calculus Workshop I (2)

MATH 1330

Intensive calculus problem-solving workshop with topics drawn from MATH 1310. Prerequisite: Instructor permission; corequisite: MATH 1310.

Calculus Workshop II (2)

MATH 1340

Intensive calculus problem-solving workshop with topics drawn from MATH 1320. Prerequisite: Instructor permission; corequisite: MATH 1320.

New Course in Mathematics (1.00 - 4.00)

MATH 1559

This course provides the opportunity to offer a new topic in the subject of mathematics.

Calculus III (4.00)

MATH 2310

A continuation of Calculus I and II, this course is about functions of several variables.  Topics include finding maxima and minima of functions of several variables, surfaces and curves in three-dimensional space and integration over these surfaces and curves.  Additional topics include conservative vector fields and Stokes’ and the divergence theorems as well as how these concepts relate to real world applications. 

Prerequisite: MATH 1320 or the equivalent. 

Advanced Calculus and Linear Algebra I (4.00)

MATH 2315

Covers the material from MATH 2310 (Multivariable Calculus) plus topics from complex numbers, set theory, and linear algebra.  Prepares students for taking advanced mathematics courses at an early stage.  Success in this course and MATH 3315 (grades of B- or higher) exempts the student from the math major requirement of taking MATH 3351 and MATH 3250.

Prerequisite:  MATH 1320 or the equivalent.

New Course in Mathematics (1.00 - 4.00)

MATH 2559

This course provides the opportunity to offer a new topic in the subject of mathematics.

Euclidean and Non-Euclidean Geometry (3.00)

MATH 2700

Examines assumptions and methods in the original text of Euclid's Elements. Covers selected geometric topics such as symmetries, spherical geometry, curvature, the dissection theory of area, constructible numbers, and the discovery of non-Euclidean geometry.

Prerequisite: Some familiarity with calculus.

Transition to Higher Mathematics (4.00)

MATH 3000

Covers basic concepts with an emphasis on writing mathematical proofs. Topics include logic, sets, functions and relations, equivalence relations and partitions, induction, and cardinality. Prerequisite: Math 1320.

Introduction to Probability (3.00)

MATH 3100

Introduces the fundamental concepts and techniques of probability, the theory of randomness. Focuses on problem solving and understanding key theoretical ideas. Topics include sample spaces, combinatorial analysis, discrete and continuous random variables, classical distributions, expectation, Chebyshev’s inequality, independence, central limit theorem, conditional probability, and generating functions.

Prerequisite: MATH 1320. A knowledge of double integrals is recommended.

Introduction to Mathematical Statistics (3.00)

MATH 3120

Includes sampling theory, point estimation, interval estimation, testing hypotheses (including the Neyman-Pearson lemma and likelihood ratio tests), and regression and correlation. Prerequisite: MATH 3100.
