Credit not granted for this course and MATH 2001.
  • MATH 2135 - Introduction to Linear Algebra for Mathematics Majors
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    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 plan to major in Mathematics. Degree credit not granted for this course and MATH 2130 or APPM 3310. Formerly MATH 3135.
  • MATH 3001 - Analysis 1
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Fall 2020
    Provides a rigorous treatment of the basic results from elementary Calculus. Topics include the topology of the real line, sequences of numbers, continuous functions, differentiable functions and the Riemann integral.
  • MATH 6210 - Introduction to Topology 1
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Fall 2020
    Introduces elements of point-set topology and algebraic topology, including the fundamental group and elements of homology. Department enforced prerequisites: MATH 2130 and MATH 3140 and MATH 4001. Instructor consent required for undergraduates.
