Geometrical mathematics involves many topics other than traditional Euclidean geometry. This course explores topics that vary 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.

 CRN 15057 Distribution E/G Course No. MATH 110 Q Course Title Precalculus Mathematics Professor Robert Vivona Schedule Tu Th 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm HEG 102
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.

 CRN 15058 Distribution E/G Course No. MATH 111 Q Course Title Calculus of One Variable Professor Ethan Bloch Schedule Tu Th 3:00 pm - 4:50 pm HEG 106
An introduction to the basic ideas of differentiation and integration in one variable. Topics include limits, techniques of differentiation, definite integrals, the fundamental theorem of calculus, and applications. Prerequisite: background in precalculus mathematics.

 CRN 15059 Distribution E/G Course No. MATH 114 Q Course Title Multivariable Calculus Professor Lauren Rose Schedule Tu Th 1:30 pm - 3:20 pm ALBEE 106
This course will start with a review of definite integration and introduce several important techniques of integration. 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.

 CRN 15060 Distribution E Course No. MATH 125 Q Course Title Statistics and Probability Professor Matthew Deady Schedule Mon Th 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm 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.

 CRN 15061 Distribution E/G Course No. MATH 135 Q Course Title Game Theory Professor Mark Halsey Schedule Mon Wed 1:00 pm - 2:20 pm HEG 106
In the twentieth century, the theory of games gained prominence for its application to the social sciences. Game theory is a mathematical approach to modeling situations of conflict whether real of theoretical. This course will introduce the student to this exciting area of mathematics. Using algebra and some analytical geometry, students will be able to explore the mathematical foundations of game theory. At the same time students will encounter a wide range of applications of the theory of games. Topics covered will be chosen from: zero sum games, nonzero sum games, pure and mixed strategies, von Neumann's Minimax Theorem, Nash equilibria, and cooperative games. Prerequisities: Precalculus or permission of the instructor.
