### MATH 106: Introduction to Statistics

Designed for students in health-related majors, the social sciences, business, or other fields in which a basic knowledge of statistical methods is required. Topics include sampling, descriptive statistics, probability, the normal and binomial distributions, confidence intervals and hypothesis testing for means and proportions, and chi-square tests. Additional topics may include simple linear regression, simulation, and one-way analysis of variance. Computer-based lab activities are required.

### MATH 113: Math for Elementary Teachers II

A continuation of MATH 112.  Topics include algebraic and functional reasoning, graphing, coordinate geometry, the geometry of shapes, measurements, transformations and symmetry, congruence and similarity, descriptive statistics, and an introduction to probability.  Emphasizes constructing concrete models for these concepts and lab work is required.

### MATH 122: Precalculus II

A continuation of MATH 121.  Topics include trigonometric functions and their graphs, trigonometric identities, matrices, determinants, sequences, mathematical induction, and the binomial theorem.

### MATH 171: Calculus I

Designed for students majoring in mathematics, engineering, or the physical sciences, or for those seeking a rigorous introduction to Calculus with early transcendentals. Topics include limits, continuity, derivatives, and applications. Includes formal definitions and proofs.

### MATH 239: Introduction to Linear Algebra

Designed to introduce students majoring in mathematics, computing, engineering, or the physical sciences to the concepts of linear algebra. Topics include systems of linear equations, matrices, linear transformations, determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, vector spaces, basis and dimension, and Euclidean n-space.  Additional topics may include the inner product, orthogonal projections, and least squares.

### MATH 273: Calculus III

A continuation of MATH 172. Topics include sequences, series, tests for convergence, Taylor and Maclaurin series, polar coordinates, parametric equations, and vector calculus. Includes formal definitions and proofs.

### MATH 274: Calculus IV

### MATH 286: Ordinary Differential Equations

Designed to introduce students majoring in mathematics, engineering, or the physical sciences to ordinary differential equations. Topics include linear and non-linear first order equations and systems of equations, higher order linear equations, elementary phase plane analysis, and Laplace transform techniques. Additional topics may include elementary numerical techniques, nonlinear dynamics, power series methods, and modeling.

### MATH 315: Probability and Statistics

Designed for students majoring in mathematics, engineering, or the physical sciences, or for those seeking a calculus-based survey of probability and statistics. Topics include combinatorics, probability distributions and densities, mathematical expectation, functions of random variables, sampling distributions, interval estimation, hypothesis testing, linear regression, and analysis of variance.

### MATH 351: Mathematical Modeling

Designed to give students majoring in mathematics, computing, engineering, or the physical sciences an introduction to mathematical modeling and its applications. Topics may include discrete- and continuous-time deterministic and stochastic models, linearization, bifurcations, chaos, computer simulation and others. Areas of application may include biology, business, engineering, physics, or others chosen by the instructor.

### MATH 498: Senior Mathematics Seminar III

Continuation of MATH 497. Students will critique the oral reports given in MATH 497, expand on their research if necessary, and prepare a professionally formatted scholarly paper in consultation with their assigned faculty research supervisor.

### MDEV 003: Intermediate Algebra

Designed for students who enter university without having met the mathematics entrance requirements of a one-year course in high school Algebra II. Topics include sets, numbers, exponents, polynomials, factoring rational algebraic expressions, graphs, first and second degree equations, and inequalities.
