## MATHEMATICS 108—CORNERSTONES IN MATHEMATICS (QR)

Fall, Spring. Credit, four hours. Beginning with "strange arithmetics" connected to braiding cords, paper-flipping, and clocks, and ending with the fundamental theorem of algebra and Abel’s shocking "impossibility theorem" -- this course reveals new connections and unexpected motivations for familiar ideas from precalculus. (e.g., trigonometry as birthed by complex numbers; solutions to the general cubic and quartic equations; hyperbolic trigonometry derived from logarithms) In doing so, the course includes a good review of algebra and transcendental functions and provides a solid foundation for subsequent study of calculus.

## MATHEMATICS 111—CALCULUS I (QR)

Fall, Spring. Credit, three hours. This sequence includes differential and integral calculus of algebraic and transcendental functions of one variable, with applications and infinite series, including power series.

## MATHEMATICS 112—CALCULUS II (QR)

Fall, Spring. Credit, three hours. This sequence includes differential and integral calculus of algebraic and transcendental functions of one variable, with applications and infinite series, including power series.

## MATHEMATICS 117—INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS (QR)

Fall, Spring. Credit, four hours. Covers basic concepts in counting and probability, hypothesis testing, linear regression and correlation, ANOVA, plus several nonparametric models.  Statistical analysis using both R and Excel will also be addressed.

## MATHEMATICS 120—INTRODUCTION TO PURE MATHEMATICS (QR)

When schedules allow. Credit, three 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.

## MATHEMATICS 125—CODES AND CONNECTIONS: AN INTRODUCTION TO NUMBER THEORY (QR)

When schedule allows. Credit, three hours. Using secret codes, puzzles, and curious mathematical oddities such 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.

## MATHEMATICS 185—TOPICS IN MATHEMATICS

On demand. Credit, three hours. Rotating topics in math. May be repeated for credit when the topic varies. Prerequisites and co requisites depend on the topic offered.

## MATHEMATICS 202—MATHEMATICS CENTER PRACTICUM

TBA. Credit, one hour. Designed as a companion to the first semester experience as a Mathematics Center tutor. Course includes reflection on tutoring experiences and practice in tutoring strategies. Included will be an in-depth review of essential mathematical concepts and proofs in the Calculus sequence, theoretical and pedagogical readings, and tutoring reflections and observations.

## MATHEMATICS 210—ADVANCED CALCULUS FOR DATA SCIENCE (QR)

TBA. Credit, four hours. Prerequisite: Mathematics 111. This course is a short treatment of Math 112 and 211 with a lab component. It is not appropriate for students who have taken Math 211. Topics include: advanced integration, Taylor series; and multivariable differentiation, optimization and integration; and applications to statistics and science.

## MATHEMATICS 211—MULTIVARIABLE CALCULUS (QR)

Fall. Credit, three hours. Prerequisite: Mathematics 112. Vectors, multivariable functions, partial derivatives, multiple integrals, vector and scalar fields, Green’s and Stokes’ theorems, and divergence theorem.
