4 credit hours

MATH 112: Intermediate Algebra

Prerequisites: Appropriate score on the math placement test or a “C” or better in MATH 100

Offered: Fall and Spring

This course is designed to prepare the student for college algebra. It is a comprehensive course, staritng with pre-algebra material and extending through a second year algebra course. Topics covered will include: general math, order of operations, graphing, real numbers, exponents, polynomials, rational numbers, complex numbers, absolute value, equations, inequalities, quadratics, and variation and proportion.

4 credit hours

MATH 113: College Algebra

Prerequisites: Admission by entrance exam or completion of MATH 112 with a “C” or better

Offered: Fall and Spring

Topics include Equations and Inequalities, Functions and Graphs, Polynomial and Rational Functions, Exponential and Logarithmic Functions, Sequences and Series, and the Binomial Theorem. This course is similar to high school Precalculus and assumes students have successfully completed two years of high school algebra and one year of high school geometry.

4 credit hours

MATH 114: Trigonometry

Prerequisites: MATH 113 or permission of instructor

Offered: Spring

Topics include properties of trigonometric functions, trigonometric identities, applications to analytical geometry, vectors, polar coordinates, and complex numbers. Intended to prepare students for courses in calculus and physics.

MATH 201: Basic Concepts and Teaching of Elementary Math I

Prerequisites: MATH 110 or 113

Note: Cannot be used to fill Natural Sciences and Mathematics area of the General Education requirement.

Offered: Fall

A study of the history of numbers, set theory, whole numbers, system of integers, and other bases. An emphasis will be placed on understanding these mathematical concepts and developing strategies for teaching them to elementary school students. Classroom teaching and observation will be required of all students. The lab experiences will include areas such as Introduction to NCTM Standards and Analysis of Documents. The introduction of strategies in the use of manipulatives and technology is to be incorporated into the lesson plan process. A field experience of 5 hours is required. Lecture: three credit hours; lab: one credit hour.

4 credit hours

MATH 202: Basic Concepts and Teaching of Elementary Math II

Prerequisites: MATH 201

Note: Cannot be used to fill Natural Sciences and Mathematics area of the General Education requirement.

Offered: Spring

A continuation of MATH 201; additional topics include rational numbers, real numbers, topics in geometry, and elementary logic. An emphasis will be placed on understanding mathematical concepts and developing strategies for teaching such concepts. The lab experiences will utilize NCTM Standards to discover relationships, generalities, and problem solving through the use of manipulatives and technology, which coincide with specific content with innovative strategies, reflected through a well-developed lesson plan. Students will analyze various learning theories and provide hands-on exercises to evoke effective teaching practices through lesson plan design. A field experience of 5 hours is required. Lecture: three credit hours; lab: one credit hour.

4 credit hours

MATH 225: Multivariable Calculus

Prerequisites: MATH 126

Offered: Fall

Topics covered will include: vectors, graphing in space, surfaces, areas, volumes, cylindrical and spherical coordinates, functions of more than one variable, partial derivatives, multiple integration, Green’s Theorem, Stoke’s Theorem, and Gauss’s Divergence Theorem.

4 credit hours

MATH 226: Differential Equations

Prerequisites: MATH 225

Offered: Spring, as needed

Topics covered will include: first order equations, second order equations, linear equations of arbitrary order, series solutions, the Laplace Transform, systems of linear equations, numerical methods, and Fourier Series.

4 credit hours

MATH 227: Linear Algebra

Prerequisites: ACT score of 24 in Mathematics or completion of MATH 114 with a grade of “C” or better

Offered: Spring

Systems of linear equations, matrices and matrix operations, determinants, vectors in the plane and space, linear combinations, linear independence, dot and cross products, groups, rings, fields and vector spaces, basis and dimension, orthonormal bases, linear transformations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and appropriate applications.

3 credit hours

MATH 250: Introduction to Probability and Statistical Inference

Prerequisites: MATH 110, 113, 114, or 125

Offered: Fall, as needed

Probability in the social and nature sciences. Topics such as permutations, combinations, discrete sample spaces, mutually exclusive and independent events, conditional probability, random drawings, binomial distribution, Bayes’ Theorem, central limit theorem, continuous probability distributions, sampling, estimation, hypothesis testing, linear regression and correlation analysis.

4 credit hours

MATH 315: Topics in Algebra and Discrete Mathematics
