2014 Spring

  • MATH 210-502 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 230-004 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 385-003 DIRECTED STUDY
    For students who desire to pursue a special topic in mathematics not covered in the current curriculum. Under most circumstances students will take this course for three credit hours. This course may be repeated under different subtitles but only a total of four credit hours from MATH 385 and/or COSC 385 may be used toward a major or minor. Prerequisite: Consent of instructor and chair of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. One to four hours per week.

2014 Fall

  • MATH 390-001 UNDERGRAD RESEARCH PROJ
    Offers study of some area of the mathematical sciences in more depth than is possible in the usual classroom setting. Students work on a project under the direction of faculty members. Prerequisite: Department chair and research committee approval. (P/F)
  • MATH 430-001 MATH CNNECTN SEC SCH TCHRS
    Connection of the undergraduate mathematics curriculum to the secondary mathematics curriculum by examining high school curriculum topics from an advanced and historical perspective. Contributions from diverse cultures as students examine the historical development of numbers and number systems, algebra, Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries, calculus, discrete mathematics, statistics, probability, and measurement. Prerequisites: SCED 373 and MATH 441 or MATH 451. Four hours per week.
  • MATH 441-002 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 506-151 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.
  • MATH 531-001 MATH CNNCTNS SEC SCH TCHRS
    Connects the undergraduate mathematics curriculum to the secondary mathematics curriculum by examining high school curriculum topics from an advanced and historical perspective with the goal of deepening understanding of the mathematics required for teaching in secondary schools. Considers contributions from diverse cultures in the examination of the historical development of numbers and number systems, algebra, Euiclidean and non-Euclidean geometries, calculus, discrete mathematics, statistics, probablility, and measurement. Prerequisite: Mathematics teaching experience. Four hours per week.
  • MATH 561-002 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.
