Degree Type Offered: Minor
MATH-131 Calculus I
Term Offered: Fall and Spring
Study of differential calculus of a single
variable. Applications of the derivative are made
to curve sketching, max-min problems, and linear
approximation, and I'Hopital's Rule. Also
included are applications of the Intermediate
Value Theorem and Mean Value Theorem. Credit may
not be received for both MATH 130 and 131.
Prerequisites: MATH-120 or satisfactory
performance on placement test
MATH-132 Calculus II
Study of integral calculus of a single variable.
Included are techniques of integration and
numerical methods of integration. Applications of
the integral are made to computing area, volume,
arc length, and selected topics.
MATH-200 Introduction to Number Theory
Term Offered: Fall Only
Emphasis is on mathematical proofs. Topics
include properties of integers (such as odd,
even, prime, etc.), division algorithm, least
common multiples, greatest common divisors,
binary operations ad modular arithmetic.
MATH-210 Introduction to Linear Algebra
Term Offered: Spring Only
Emphasis on finite dimensional vector spaces and
the algebra of matrices. Vector topics include
n-dimensional vectors, dot product, norm,
orthogonality, lines, planes, projections and
cross products. Matrix topics include systems of
equations, matrix operations, Gauss elimination,
determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
MATH-231 Calculus III
Continuation of Calculus I and II. Included are
Taylor polynomials, infinite series, and polar
coordinates. Also included is an introduction to
multivariate calculus and multiple integrals.
And two additional MATH courses numbered 300?450, excluding MATH-360
