## MATH 100 STEM Scholars Vocation and Math Modeling (WB2)

In this interactive two-credit course, students connect their STEM interests to social problem-solving and community-based vocational leadership. Students will participate in project-based math modeling, validating alumni panels, employer excursions, guided discussions, and small-group faculty mentoring. Through this collaborative learning, students will foster a sense of community, launch their college careers confidently, and exhibit the mindset of change agents.

### Credits

### Prerequisites

MATH 130## MATH 140 Quantitative Reasoning (MT)

For students with one or two years of high school algebra. This course is at the level of college algebra, but is not focused on algebra. It stresses application of mathematics in careers of non-scientists and in the everyday lives of educated citizens, covering basic mathematics, logic, and problem solving in the context of real-world applications.

### Credits

## MATH 150 Pre-Calculus (MT)

Algebra review, functions and graphs, logarithmic and exponential functions, analytic geometry, trigonometric functions, trigonometric identities and equations, mathematical induction, complex numbers. Students completing this course are prepared to enter calculus.

### Credits

## MATH 151 Calculus I (MT)

Limits and continuity for functions of one real variable. Derivatives and integrals of algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Applications of the derivative. Introduction to related numerical methods.

### Credits

## MATH 152 Calculus II

Techniques of integration, numerical integration, and applications of integrals. Infinite series including Taylor series. Introduction to differential equations. Calculus in polar coordinates.

### Credits

## MATH 153 Calculus III

The calculus of vector-valued functions, functions of several variables, and vector fields. Includes vector operations, equations of curves and surfaces in space, partial derivatives, multiple integrals, line integrals, surface integrals, and applications.

### Credits

## MATH 200 Foundations of Mathematics

Bridges the gap between computational, algorithmic mathematics courses and more abstract, theoretical courses. Emphasizes the structure of modern mathematics: axioms, postulates, definitions, examples conjectures, counterexamples, theorems, and proofs. Builds skill in reading and writing proofs. Includes careful treatment of sets, functions, relations, cardinality, and construction of the integers, and the rational, real, and complex number systems.

### Credits

### Prerequisites

MATH 152## MATH 220 Linear Algebra

Vector spaces, linear independence, basis and dimension, linear mappings, matrices, linear equations, determinants, Eigen values, and quadratic forms.

### Credits

### Prerequisites

MATH 152## MATH 280 Introduction into Statistics using R (MT)

This course introduces descriptive and inferential statistics coupled with basic probability theory. Both traditional (normal and t-distribution) and simulation approaches including confidence intervals and hypothesis testing on means (one-sample, two-sample, paired), proportions (one-sample, two-sample), regression, and correlation are covered. Students will be introduced to numerous examples of real-world applications of statistics that are designed to help you develop a conceptual understanding of statistics. R and R Studio (free statistical software) will be used for lab exercises and final projects. The concepts and techniques in this course serve as building blocks for the inference and modeling used in later courses.

### Credits

## MATH 305 Applied Regression

The quality of an applied course is measured by how well they can apply the techniques covered in the course to the solution of real problems encountered in their field of study. Consequently, we advocate moving on to new topics only after the students have demonstrated the ability (through testing) to apply the techniques under discussion. In-class consulting sessions, where a case study is presented and the students have the opportunity to diagnose the problem and recommend an appropriate method of analysis, are very helpful in teaching applied regression analysis. This approach is particularly useful in helping students master the difficult topic of model selection and model building and relating questions about the model to real-world questions.

### Credits

## MATH 310 Differential Equations

Methods of solving first and second order differential equations, applications, systems of equations, series solutions, existence theorems, numerical methods, and partial differential equations.

### Credits

### Prerequisites

MATH 152## MATH 315 Probability and Statistics

Probability as a mathematical system, random variables and their distributions, limit theorems, statistical inference, estimation, decision theory and testing hypotheses.

### Credits

### Prerequisites

MATH 152## MATH 316 Statistical Inference

This course content develops the basic statistical techniques used in applied fields like engineering, and the physical and natural sciences. Principal topics include point and interval estimation; tests of hypotheses. Applications include one-way classification data and chi-square tests. This course act as a gateway to other higher-level statistical courses like Bayesian Statistics, Statistical Theory, and Design & Experiment.
