In this course, we will choose serious applications of
probability and statistics and make these the focus of the course. Concepts in probability and
statistics will only be developed to the extent necessary to understand the applications. Most
topics will be introduced in a case study fashion, usually by reading an article in a current
periodical such as the *New York Times*. From there other accounts of a topic will be read
in journals such as: *Chance, Science, Nature, and Scientific American*. The primary
reading will be supplemented by readings on basic probability and statistics ideas relating to the
topics we cover. The goal is to make you better able to make critical judgments and come to
your own conclusions about current issues involving chance. Prerequisite: eligibility for Q
courses.

Geometrical thinking in mathematics involves many topics other than the traditional Euclidean geometry taught in schools. This course will explore various such topics. Areas covered will vary from semester to semester, and may include some (but not all) of the following: symmetry, groups, frieze and wallpaper patterns, graphs, surfaces, knots, higher dimensions. There is no particular mathematical prerequisite for this course beyond eligibility for Q courses, though a willingness to explore new ideas and construct convincing arguments is a necessity. Prerequisite: eligibility for Q courses.

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 courses, satisfactory performance on precalculus entrance exam.

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.

This course gives an introduction to the theory of abstract vector spaces. The concept of a vector space is often useful when studying physical phenomena. Topics covered will include linear independence and dependence, bases and dimension, linear transformations, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, diagonalization, inner product spaces, and orthogonality. Prerequisites: Mathematics 231 or permission of the instructor.
