This course is a study of discrete structures commonly

used in computer science and mathematics, including

topics from sets and relations, permutations and

combinations, graphs and trees, induction, recursion, and

Boolean Algebras.

This is a general course in elementary statistics dealing

with the collection, organization, display and inferential

techniques of modern data analysis. Topics covered may

include descriptive statistics, bivariate data, probability

distributions, sampling distributions and common

hypothesis tests.

This course covers the forms and solutions of many

different types of ordinary differential equations and

their applications in the sciences.

A practical introduction to formal mathematical

proof emphasizing preparation for advanced study in

mathematics. Special attention is paid to reading and

building proofs using standard forms and models within

the context of specific examples.

This course covers finite geometries, modern Euclidean

geometry, constructions, non-Euclidean geometries and

other topics in geometry.

This course is designed to acquaint the student with the

widely known theorems, conjectures, unsolved problems

and proofs of number theory. In addition, the history of

mathematics, from the beginning of recorded civilization

to the present, will be covered. Topics may include

divisibility, primes, congruences, Diophantine equations

and arithmetic functions.

A general course in elementary probability theory. Topics

to be covered may include the normal distribution, random

variables, uni- and multi-variate probability distributions,

and the Central Limit Theorem.

This class covers the mathematical foundations and some

applications of statistical methods. Statistics make possible

data-based decision making based on the collection,

tabulation, analysis, and interpretation of quantitative

and qualitative data. Topics covered will include sampling

The first semester of a unified course that provides basic

mathematical competency for teachers at the elementary

school level. Emphasis is placed upon problem solving

and understanding the principles underlying mathematical

concepts. This course is strictly intended for liberal

studies majors seeking to meet breadth requirements in

mathematics. Topics to be covered include sets, whole

numbers, functions, whole-number computation, integers,

basic number theory, rational numbers, decimals, percents

and real numbers.

The second semester of a unified course that provides

basic mathematical competency for teachers at the

elementary school level. Topics to be covered include

probability, statistics, introductory geometry, constructions,

congruence, similarity, measurement, motion geometry

and tessellations.

The third semester of a unified course, this class covers

such topics as vectors, calculus on vector-valued functions,

functions of several variables, partial differentiation and

multiple integration.

(Lab fee $20.)

The fourth semester of a unified course, this class covers

topics in advanced vector analysis including vector fields,

line integrals, Green’s Theorem, surface integrals, the

Divergence Theorem, and Stokes’ Theorem.

(Lab fee $20.)

A course on the theory of linear equations and vector

spaces. Topics to be covered include linear equations,

matrices, determinants, vectors, real vector spaces,

eigenvalues, eigenvectors and linear transformations.

An interdisciplinary course designed to provide the student

with the analytical tools and concepts for dealing with

practical “everyday” problems. Emphasis is placed on

developing critical, analytical thinking and reasoning skills

in the context of quantitative and logical applications.

Topics covered may include logic, fallacies, abuse of

numbers and percentages, problem-solving techniques,

financial calculations, statistics, correlation, the normal

distribution, probability, and mathematics in the arts and

politics.
