An introduction to concepts and applications of mathematics, with examples drawn from such areas as voting methods, apportionment, consumer finance, graph theory, tilings, polyhedra, number theory and game theory. This course is not avaialable for credit to persons who have received credit in any mathematics course of a higher number with the exceptions of MA 112, 123, 162, 201 and 202. This course does not serve as a Pre-requisite for any calculus course. Credit not available on that basis of special examination. Lecture: 3 credits (45 contact hours).
A course in one-variable calculus, including topics from analytic geometry. Derivatives and integrals of elementary functions (including the trigonometric functions) with applications. Lecture, three hours; recitation, two hours per week. Students who enroll in MA 113 based on their test scores should have completed a year of pre-calculus study in high school that includes the study of the trigonometric functions. Note: Math placement test recommended. Lecture: 3.0 credits (45 contact hours). Discussion: 1.0 credit (30 contact hours).
Finite mathematics with applications to business, biology, and the social sciences. Linear functions and inequalities, matrix algebra, linear programming, probability. Emphasis on setting up mathematical models from stated problems. Lecture 3.0 credits (45 contact hours).
MA 213 is a course in multivariate calculus. Topics include three dimensional vectors calculus, partial derivatives, double and triple integrals, sequences, and infinite series. Lecture, 3 hours; recitation, 2 hours per week. Lecture: 3.0 credits (45 contact hours). Discussion: 1.0 credit (30 contact hours).
MA 214 is a course in ordinary differential equations. Emphasis is on first and second order equations and applications. The course includes series solutions of second order equations and Laplace transform methods. Lecture: 3.0 credits (45 contact hours).
