Topics in Geometrical Math |
Professor |
Ethan Bloch |
Schedule |
Tu Th 10:00 am - 11:20 am PRE 128 |
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 course and a willingness to explore new ideas and construct convincing arguments is a necessity.

Precalculus |
Professor |
Robert Vivona |
Schedule |
Mon Wed 3:30 pm - 4:50 pm ROSE 108 |
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.

Multivariable Calculus |
Professor |
Lauren Rose |
Schedule |
Tu Th 1:30 pm - 3:20 pm HEG 106 |
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.

Statistics and Probability |
Professor |
Matthew Deady |
Schedule |
Mon Wed 8:30 am - 9:50 am ROSE 108 |
This course focuses on mathematical methods used in designing and analyzing the results from experiments in the sciences, particularly biology and chemistry. Among topics covered are elementary probability and statistics, fitting and hypothesis testing, characteristics of frequency distributions, regression analysis, and propagation of uncertainties. Learning computer methods of statistical analysis will be a central aim of the course.

Introduction to Ordinary Differential Equations |
Professor |
Ranny Bledsoe |
Schedule |
Mon Wed 1:30 pm - 3:20 pm 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.
Prerequisite: Math 111 and Math 114, or permission of the instructor.

Linear Algebra |
Professor |
Lauren Rose |
Schedule |
Tu Th 10:00 am - 11:50 am ROSE 113 |
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.
Prerequisite: Mathematics 231 or permission of the instructor.
