  • MATH 1212 - Data and Models
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020 / Spring 2021
    Engages students in statistical and algebraic problem solving through modeling data and real world questions taken from the social and life sciences. The course will emphasize these skills and the mathematical background needed for a university level statistics course. Credit not granted for this course and MATH 1011.
  • MATH 1300 - Calculus 1
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2018 / Summer 2019 / Fall 2021
    Topics include limits, derivatives of algebraic and transcendental functions, applications of the derivative, integration and applications of the definite integral. Students who have already earned college credit for calculus 1 are eligible to enroll in this course if they want to solidify their knowledge base in calculus 1. For more information about the math placement referred to in the Enrollment Requirements, contact your academic advisor. Degree credit not granted for this course and APPM 1345 or APPM 1350 or ECON 1088 MATH 1081 or MATH 1310 or MATH 1330.
  • MATH 2130 - Introduction to Linear Algebra for Non-Mathematics Majors
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Examines basic properties of systems of linear equations, vector spaces, inner products, linear independence, dimension, linear transformations, matrices, determinants, eigenvalues, eigenvectors and diagonalization. Intended for students who do not plan to major in Mathematics. Degree credit not granted for this course and MATH 2135 or APPM 3310. Formerly MATH 3130.
  • MATH 2300 - Calculus 2
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2018 / Summer 2019 / Spring 2020 / Summer 2020 / Summer 2021
    Continuation of MATH 1300. Topics include transcendental functions, methods of integration, polar coordinates, differential equations, improper integrals, infinite sequences and series, Taylor polynomials and Taylor series. Department enforced prerequisite: MATH 1300 or MATH 1310 or APPM 1345 or APPM 1350 (minimum grade C-). Degree credit not granted for this course and APPM 1360.
  • MATH 2400 - Calculus 3
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Summer 2020 / Fall 2020 / Summer 2021
    Continuation of MATH 2300. Topics include vectors, three-dimensional analytic geometry, partial differentiation and multiple integrals, and vector analysis. Department enforced prerequisite: MATH 2300 or APPM 1360 (minimum grade C-). Degree credit not granted for this course and APPM 2350.
  • MATH 2510 - Introduction to Statistics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019 / Fall 2019
    Elementary statistical measures. Introduces statistical distributions, statistical inference, hypothesis testing and linear regression. Department enforced prerequisite: two years of high school algebra.
  • MATH 3510 - Introduction to Probability and Statistics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Introduces the basic notions of Probability: random variables, expectation, conditioning, and the standard distributions (Binomial, Poisson, Exponential, Normal). This course also covers the Law of Large Numbers and Central Limit Theorem as they apply to statistical questions: sampling from a random distribution, estimation, and hypothesis testing. Credit not granted for this course and MATH 2510 or MATH 4510.
  • MATH 3850 - Seminar in Guided Mathematics Instruction
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019 / Fall 2019 / Spring 2020
    Provides learning assistants with an opportunity to analyze assessment data for formative purposes and develop instructional plans as a result of these analyses. These formative assessment analyses will build on the literature in the learning sciences. Students gain direct experiences interacting with the tools of the trade, especially with actual assessment data and models of instruction. May be repeated up to 3 total credit hours. Restricted to learning assistants in Math.
  • MATH 4510 - Introduction to Probability Theory
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2021
    Studies axioms, combinatorial analysis, independence and conditional probability, discrete and absolutely continuous distributions, expectation and distribution of functions of random variables, laws of large numbers, central limit theorems, and simple Markov chains if time permits. Degree credit not granted for this course and APPM 3570 or ECEN 3810 or MATH 3510. Same as MATH 5510.
  • MATH 4520 - Introduction to Mathematical Statistics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020
    Examines point and confidence interval estimation. Principles of maximum likelihood, sufficiency, and completeness: tests of simple and composite hypotheses, linear models, and multiple regression analysis if time permits. Analyzes various distribution-free methods. Same as MATH 5520 and STAT 4520 and STAT 5520.
  • MATH 4540 - Introduction to Time Series
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021

  • MATH 4820 - History of Mathematical Ideas
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Examines the evolution of a few mathematical concepts (e.g., number, geometric continuum, or proof), with an emphasis on the controversies surrounding these concepts. Begins with Ancient Greek mathematics and traces the development of mathematical concepts through the middle ages into the present. Recommended restriction: completion of upper division Written Communication requirement. Same as MATH 5820.
