Introduction to College Mathematics
Fall, Spring. Credit, two hours. This course is designed for students who need to strengthen their mathematical backgrounds before entering regular college mathematics courses. The course includes a review of algebra and topics from discrete mathematics. Students attend three hours of lecture and one two-hour special session (laboratory) per week.
Graph Models and Math Models
On demand or every other year. Credit, four hours. Students have the opportunity to confront and solve problems related to graph theory.
Transition to Calculus
Fall, Spring. Credit, four hours. Pre-calculus topics with beginning calculus. For students who need a review of transcendental functions before taking calculus. Not for GER.
Mathematics 111 and 112
Calculus I and II
Fall, Spring. Credit, four hours each semester. This sequence includes differential and integral calculus of algebraic and transcendental functions of one variable, with applications and infinite series, including power series. Students receiving credit for Math 111 cannot take Math 119, Business Calculus for credit.
Introduction to Probability and Statistics
Fall, Spring. Credit, four hours. Basic concepts in counting, probability, hypothesis testing, linear regression and correlation, ANOVA, plus several nonparametric models. Statistical analysis using both R and Excel will also be addressed. Calculator is required.
Introduction to Pure Mathematics
When schedules allow. Credit, four hours. Proofs and the foundations of mathematical thought, namely, definitions, axioms, and logic. Specific topics include geometry and number theory. Intended for non-mathematics majors.
Codes and Connections: An Introduction to Number Theory
When schedule allows. Credit, four hours. Using secret codes, puzzles, and curious mathematical oddities as motivation, this course explores the elementary concepts behind the theory of numbers and their unexpected connections with other major branches of mathematics. Intended for non-mathematics majors.
