Courses  []

2015 Spring

  • HONR 312-046 HONR RESRCH/CREATIVE PROJ
    Develop a research or creative project suitable for presentation at an undergraduate research conference or equivalent public venue. Work one-on-one with a faculty mentor from a department of the student's choosing and with Honors administrative faculty to complete and present the independent project. Prerequisites: Admission to Honors Program. One hour per week. (P/F)
  • MATH 210-002 INTRO TO DISCRETE MATH
    Introduction to basic techniques and modes of reasoning for discrete problem solving. Set theory, recurrence relations, counting, graphs and lattices, number theory. Prerequisites: MATH 140 or equivalent. Four hours per week. Meets General Education IVB or IVC (Prior to Fall 2008: IIIB or IIIC).
  • MATH 230-001 FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS II
    Continuation of the process begun in MATH 130 of preparing prospective elementary school teachers to teach mathematics. Like MATH 130, it fosters a thorough understanding of fundamental mathematics and emphasizes the ability to communicate this understanding effectively. Cannot receive credit for both MATH 104 and 230. Prerequisites: MATH 130 completed with a C or better. Three hours per week. Meets General Education IVB or IVC (Prior to Fall 2008: IIIB or IIIC).
  • MATH 230-005 FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS II
    Continuation of the process begun in MATH 130 of preparing prospective elementary school teachers to teach mathematics. Like MATH 130, it fosters a thorough understanding of fundamental mathematics and emphasizes the ability to communicate this understanding effectively. Cannot receive credit for both MATH 104 and 230. Prerequisites: MATH 130 completed with a C or better. Three hours per week. Meets General Education IVB or IVC (Prior to Fall 2008: IIIB or IIIC).
  • MATH 300-001 INTRO TO ABSTRACT MATH
    Designed for students majoring and minoring in mathematics. Students experience the power of mathematical thought and develop facility with mathematical expression, both written and oral. Assignments make use of both inductive and deductive reasoning. Prerequisite: MATH 210 or a course in discrete mathematics with a grade of C or better. Three hours per week.
  • MATH 506-001 SELECTED TOPICS
    Designed for students with a major in mathematics to develop topics in mathematics not included in their undergraduate program, or to extend areas previously studied. Specific topic may be indicated on transcript. May be taken twice under different course subtitles recorded with the registrar. Graduate credit only. Prerequisite: Approval of the department.

2015 Fall

  • MATH 130-003 FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS I
    For prospective elementary school teachers, the course provides a thorough understanding of the mathematical concepts covered in grades one through eight. Moves through the mathematical content into the ability to explain the mathematical ideas and relationships. Emphasizes the ability to explain the concepts in everyday language appropriate for the listener, using correct vocabulary, and the ability to demonstrate these ideas using physical models and/or activities. Use of technology is required. Includes non-routine problem solving. May not receive credit for both MATH 103 and MATH 130. Three hours per week each. Does not meet General Education requirements.
  • MATH 230-001 FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS II
    Continuation of the process begun in MATH 130 of preparing prospective elementary school teachers to teach mathematics. Like MATH 130, it fosters a thorough understanding of fundamental mathematics and emphasizes the ability to communicate this understanding effectively. Cannot receive credit for both MATH 104 and 230. Prerequisites: MATH 130 completed with a C or better. Three hours per week. Meets General Education IVB or IVC (Prior to Fall 2008: IIIB or IIIC).
  • MATH 230-002 FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS II
    Continuation of the process begun in MATH 130 of preparing prospective elementary school teachers to teach mathematics. Like MATH 130, it fosters a thorough understanding of fundamental mathematics and emphasizes the ability to communicate this understanding effectively. Cannot receive credit for both MATH 104 and 230. Prerequisites: MATH 130 completed with a C or better. Three hours per week. Meets General Education IVB or IVC (Prior to Fall 2008: IIIB or IIIC).
  • MATH 441-001 ABSTRACT ALGEBRA I
    Introduction to the theory of groups, rings, integral domains and fields, including basic properties of polynomials. May be offered for undergraduate or graduate credit. Prerequisite: MATH 210 and/or 306 (both recommended). Three hours per week. Meets General Education IVB or IVC (Prior to Fall 2008: IIIB or IIIC).
  • MATH 561-001 ABSTRACT ALGEBRA I
    Introduction to the theory of groups, rings, integral domains and fields, including basic properties of polynomials. May be offered for undergraduate or graduate credit. Prerequisite: MATH 210 and/or 306 (both recommended). Three hours per week. Meets General Education IIIB or IIIC.
