  • APPM 1235 - Pre-Calculus for Engineers
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018
    Prepares students for the challenging content and pace of the calculus sequence required for all engineering majors. Covers algebra, trigonometry and selected topics in analytical geometry. Prepares students for the calculus courses offered for engineering students. Requires students to engage in rigorous work sessions as they review topics that they must be comfortable with to pursue engineering course work. Structured to accustom students to the pace and culture of learning encountered in engineering math courses. For more information about the math placement referred to in the Enrollment Requirements, please contact your academic advisor. Degree credit not granted for this course and MATH 1021 or MATH 1150. Formerly GEEN 1235.
  • COEN 1236 - Precalculus Work Group
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Develops and enhances problem solving skills for students enrolled in APPM 1235. Course is conducted in a collaborative learning environment with students working in groups under the guide of a facilitator.
  • CSCI 2824 - Discrete Structures
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2019 / Spring 2021
    Covers foundational materials for computer science that is often assumed in advanced courses. Topics include set theory, Boolean algebra, functions and relations, graphs, propositional and predicate calculus, proofs, mathematical induction, recurrence relations, combinatorics, discrete probability. Focuses on examples based on diverse applications of computer science. Same as CSPB 2824.
  • CSCI 2830 - Special Topics in Computer Science
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
