MATH-3103-001 (3) Monday / Tuesday / Wednesday / Thursday 9:30-10:20
3M56

This course covers methods and applications of advanced calculus. Topics are chosen from: differentiation and integration of vector valued functions; arc length and speed; curvature and general motion in 3-dimensional space; vector fields, line integrals and surface integrals; the fundamental theorems of vector analysis (Green's Theorem, Stokes' Theorem, and the Divergence Theorem); Fourier series and other topics in harmonic analysis.

MATH FOR EARLY/MIDDLE YEAR TEACHERS I
MATH-2903-001 (3) Monday / Wednesday / Friday 10:30-12:20
2L17

This course is for prospective elementary or middle years teachers who wish to gain a thorough understanding of the mathematics underpinning many of the topics taught in the K-8 curriculum. Topics include discrete math (logic and deductive reasoning, proof techniques, sets), properties of number systems (natural numbers, rational numbers, irrational numbers, real numbers), number theory (algorithms, numeration systems, Euclidean algorithm, prime factorization, modular arithmetic, divisibility, greatest common factors and least common multiples), ratios and proportional reasoning and the role of algebra and functions in problem solving.

LINEAR ALGEBRA I
MATH-1201-001 (3) Monday / Tuesday / Wednesday / Thursday 2:30-3:45
2M67

This is an introduction to fundamental results concerning systems of linear equations, matrices, determinants, properties of complex numbers, vector geometry, and vector space properties of n-dimensional Euclidean space.

LINEAR ALGEBRA II
MATH-2203-001 (3) Monday / Tuesday / Wednesday / Thursday 2:30-3:45
2M74

This course covers finite dimensional vector spaces; linear transformations and matrices; change of bases; eigenvalues and eigenvectors; and diagonalization.

INTRODUCTION TO CALCULUS II
MATH-1104-001 (3) Monday / Wednesday / Friday 8:30-10:20
3M60

This course covers single variable integral calculus. Topics include: definite and indefinite integrals, the natural logarithm defined as an integral, L'Hopital's rule, techniques of integration, and improper integrals. Applications covered include areas between curves, volumes of solids of revolution, and arc length of a curve. The combined material from MATH-1103(3) Introduction to Calculus I and MATH-1104(3) Introduction to Calculus II is equivalent to MATH-1101(6) Introduction to Calculus.

MATH ACCESS FOR EARLY/MIDDLE YEAR TEACHERS
MATH-0031-002 Monday / Wednesday / Friday 10:30AM-12:20PM
2M77

This course covers selected topics from the K-12 math curriculum in preparation for the course MATH-2903. Topics include the real number system, integer and fraction arithmetic, proportions and percentages, exponents, the distributive property, solving linear equations, basic geometry, the Pythagorean theorem and the Cartesian coordinate system. A grade of C+ or higher in this course can be used to satisfy the prerequisite for MATH-2903 but this course cannot be used as a prerequisite for MATH-0042 or any other mathematics course.

ELEMENTARY BIOLOGICAL STATISTICS
STAT-1501-001 (3) Monday / Wednesday / Friday 10:30-12:20
2M74

This is an elementary course providing students in biological and health sciences with an introduction to statistical analysis of data and the making of inferences about them. Topics include: descriptive statistics, probability and probability distributions, and tests of hypotheses and estimation. Applications are drawn from biology, chemistry and other sciences.

STATISTICAL ANALYSIS II
STAT-1302-001 (3) Monday / Wednesday / Friday 10:30-12:20
1L13

This course is an extension of STAT-1301(3). Topics include: review of sampling distributions and estimation of parameters; statistical testing and confidence intervals using z, t, F, and chi-square distributions; analysis of variance; goodness-of-fit tests and contingency tables; linear regression and correlation; and non-parametric procedures.
