Mathematics

MATH 101 Introductory Finite Mathematics I

This is an introductory course intended to familiarize the students with the basic concepts of arithmetic, number theory, set theory, symbolic logic, and finite mathematics. Topics include logic, sets, numeration systems, arithmetic in non-decimal systems, system of integers, elementary number theory and modular arithmetic. There will be a strong emphasis on critical thinking, problem solving, understanding concepts and their applications.

 

MATH 108 Mathematical Problems, Ideas and Personalities

This course explores some of the most significant and enduring ideas in mathematics.   From early numeration systems to many of the great theorems of mathematics, this course seeks to place mathematics within its historical context, illustrating not only the concepts but the societies and personalities behind these discoveries of beauty and insight that stand today as monuments to the human intellect.

 

MATH 110 Calculus I

One of the great mathematical advances of all time, calculus has broad applicability across disciplines.  This introductory calculus class covers the theory and techniques of differentiation and integration of algebraic and trigonometric functions. Topics will include limits, optimization, curve sketching, and calculation of areas.

 

MATH 111 Calculus II

A continuation of Math 110, this course covers differentiation and integration of exponential and logarithmic functions, inverse functions, methods of integration with applications, indeterminate forms and L'Hospital's Rule, improper integrals, parametric equations, polar coordinates, power series, and Taylor series.

 

MATH 122 Linear Algebra I

This course introduces students to elementary linear algebra with a focus on computation and application. Topics include matrices and systems of linear equations, matrix inversion and determinants, vectors, inner products, eigenvectors and eigenvalues.  In addition to its utility in solving a large class of common mathematical problems, linear algebra is foundational for many higher courses in mathematics and science.
