Notes
1. All students who are interested in going to IBEX
should consult their advisor as early as possible.
2. All students in the Mathematics Education
Emphasis are strongly urged to take ED400 and
ED410 during their last two years,
in addition to
the courses required for the Bachelor’s degree
as a preparation for the Fifth Year Program.
Contact the Department of Teacher Education
for more information.
3. A maximum of two (non-general education)
upper division courses from another department
may be used to satisfy the “Additional Upper
Division Mathematics Courses” requirement,
subject to the
prior
approval of the student’s
advisor.
Course Offerings in
Mathematics
MA078 Basic Mathematics (1)
This course covers the nature of numbers and fundamentals
of operations, an introduction to geometry, solving
consumer applications, and algebra. This course does not
count toward a degree and is graded on a Pass/Fail basis.
MA090 Intermediate Algebra (1)
This course covers further studies in linear equations
and inequalities, rational expressions, roots and radicals,
systems of equations, and functions and their graphs:
polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic. This
course is intended for those who need a refresher course
before enrolling in ACC210, BUS310 and MA101. This
course does not count toward a degree and is graded on
a Pass/Fail basis.
MA101 College Algebra & Trigonometry (3)
A standard course combining algebra and trigonometry
intended as a preparation for MA121 Calculus I.
Prerequisite:
Two years of high school algebra, successful completion of MA090,
or instructor approval.
MA111 Introduction to Scientific Computing (2)
This course is an introduction to programming using the
Matlab scientific computing environment. This class does
not require any previous programming experience.
The basics of programming will be introduced and
illustrated using the Matlab language. The techniques
seen in class (variables handling, iteration, visualization,
data analysis, simulation) will be then used to learn how
to solve “real-life” problems. The emphasis is on the
interplay between computation, theory and experiment
and is illustrated by examples coming from mathematics
but also from other scientific or quantitative disciples
like biology and business.
Prerequisite: MA 101 or instructor
approval (Lab Fee $20.)
MA121 Calculus I (4)
The first semester of a unified course, this class covers
basic analytic geometry, limits, continuity, differentiation,
applications of the derivative, antiderivatives, and the
definite integral and its applications.
Prerequisite: MA101
or equivalent
MA122 Calculus II (4)
The second semester of a unified course, this class
covers differentiation and integration of exponential,
logarithmic, and trigonometric functions, additional
integration techniques, numerical methods, indeterminate
forms, improper integrals, infinite sequences, and series.
Prerequisite: MA121
