Welcome to the  Walla Walla University Department of Mathematics Moodle server. Here you will find resources for all MATH courses offered by the department.

    Available courses

    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. Credit does not apply toward graduation. (Course fees apply.)

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

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

    Designed for students majoring in mathematics, engineering, or the physical sciences, or for those seeking a rigorous introduction to the Calculus. Topics include limits, continuity, derivatives and applications, and integration up through substitution. Includes formal definitions of the limit, derivative, and Riemann integral as well as proofs of standard theorems, including the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.

    A continuation of MATH 181 (Calculus I).  Topics include definite and indefinite integrals, L'Hôpital's rule, techniques and applications of integration, and an introduction to differential equations.  Includes formal definitions and proofs of standard theorems, including the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.

    A continuation of MATH 281. Topics include sequences, series, tests for convergence, Taylor and Maclaurin series, polar coordinates, parametric equations, and vector calculus. Includes formal definitions and proofs of standard theorems.

    A continuation of MATH 282. Topics include differential and integral calculus of multi-variable functions, line and surface integrals, Green's theorem, the divergence theorem, and Stokes' theorem. Includes formal definitions and proofs of standard theorems. 

    Designed to introduce students majoring in mathematics, engineering, or the physical sciences to ordinary differential equations as dynamical systems. Topics include linear and non-linear first order equations and systems, higher order linear equations, modeling, standard analytic and qualitative solution methods, equilibria and stability, and phase plane analysis.

    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. Includes formal definitions and proofs of standard theorems.

    A continuation of MATH 315. Topics include decision theory, methods of estimation and properties of estimators, the theoretical underpinnings of hypothesis testing, multiple linear regression, the design and analysis of experiments, and nonparametric statistical tests. Offered odd years.

    Designed for mathematics majors who are preparing to take the Senior Mathematics Seminar Sequence. Students will read and discuss a scholarly paper of current interest in the instructor's field of mathematics.

    Designed to provide advanced students the opportunity to study topics of interest from outside the typical undergraduate mathematics curriculum. The topic for this term is Number Theory.

    A continuation of MATH 452. Covers functions of several variables, and other selected topics such as differential forms, measure theory, and Lebesgue integration. Offered odd years.

    Continuation of MATH 496. Students will critique the oral reports given in MATH 496, expand on their research if necessary, and prepare a professionally formatted scholarly paper in consultation with their assigned faculty research supervisor.
