Geometrical mathematics involves many topics other than traditional Euclidean geometry. This course explores various topics from semester to semester and may include some, but not all of the following: symmetry, groups, frieze and wallpaper patterns, graphs, surfaces, knots, and higher dimensions. Prerequisite: eligibility for Q courses and a willingness to explore new ideas and construct convincing arguments is a necessity.

Schedule |
Mon Th 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm LC 115 |
A course for students who intend to take calculus and need to acquire the necessary skills in algebra and trigonometry. The concept of function is stressed, with particular attention given to linear, quadratic, general polynomial, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Graphing in the Cartesian plane and developing the trigonometric functions as circular functions are included. This class makes extensive use of the TI-82 graphing calculator.
Prerequisites: eligibility for Q course, satisfactory performance on precalculus entrance exam.

Multivariable Calculus |
||
Professor |
Mark Halsey |
||
Schedule |
Mon Wed 8:30 am - 10:20 am HEG 102 |
This course will start with a review of definite integration and introduce several important techniques of integration. Several applications of the definite integral will be discussed. To begin the study of multivariable calculus we will discuss the basic geometry of vectors in two and three-dimensional Euclidean space. From there the topics covered will include: graphs of multivariable functions including contour maps, partial differentiation and the gradient, the chain rule, multiple integration, and change of variables.
Prerequisite: Mathematics 111 or permission of the instructor.

Schedule |
Mon Wed Fri 8:30 am - 9:50 am ROSE 108 |
This course is both an introduction to ordinary differential equations as well as the final course in our three-semester Calculus sequence. The course is organized around methods for solving ordinary differential equations, and incorporates ideas from Calculus as needed (such as sequences and series). Topics include first and second order differential equations, Laplace transforms and series solutions.
