# MATH - Mathematics

## MATH 1034 - College Algebra of Functions

MATH 1014 with C or better

This course includes topics such as polynomials, radicals, exponents, coordinate geometry, rational expressions and equations, and solutions to linear and quadratic equations. Students are introduced to the concept of functions and their graphs. Additional topics may include conic sections, matrices, variation, and nonlinear inequalities. Emphasis will be placed on problem solving. A graphing calculator is required. The course is designed to give students additional time above that allotted in MATH 1033 working on mastery of concepts and skills in the student learning outcomes.

## MATH 3003 - Linear Algebra

This course is an introduction to linear algebra. Topics covered include solution of systems of linear equations, linear independence, matrix algebra, vector spaces, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, orthogonality, and least squares problems.

## MATH 6114 - Differential Equations

This is the beginning study of the solution of differential equations with emphasis on both analytic and numerical solutions. Topics include first and second order differential equations and their solutions, series solutions, Laplace transforms, linear equations of higher order, numerical solutions or ordinary differential equations using Euler and Runge-Kutta methods, and the use of Eigenvalue methods to solve linear systems. In addition, this course emphasizes the development of differential equations as mathematical models for a variety of practical applications.

## MATH 6104 - Multivariate & Vector Calculus

This course is designed as a continuation of MATH 2094. Topics will include: parametric equations, polar, cylindrical and spherical coordinate systems, vectors and vector valued functions, functions of several variables, partial derivatives and applications, multiple integrals, and vector analysis, including Green's theorem, Stokes' theorem, and Gauss' theorem. The course will include several major projects outside of class.

## MATH 1004 - Mathematical Concepts*

This course will introduce the students to the following topics: order of operations, operations on real numbers, simplifying algebraic expressions, integer exponents, solving linear equations in one variable, graphing linear equations in two variables, and applications such as geometry and modeling. Emphasis is placed on reviewing basic arithmetic skills and elementary algebra topics. Development of arithmetic skills throughout the semester is essential, therefore students will not be allowed to use calculators.

## MATH 1014 - Algebra Concepts

MATH 1004 with C or better

This course is intended for students who need more preparation to be successful in College Algebra or other courses of that level. Topics covered include: review of first degree equations, systems of equations and inequalities, graphing, polynomials, factoring, radicals and rational exponents, quadratic equations, rational expressions, relations and functions and an introduction to triangle trigonometry.

## MATH 7123 - Statistics for Engineering Technology

This calculus-based course offers the theoretical basis for probability and statistics related to engineering applications. Topics include data analysis techniques, random variables, expectation, important probability distributions and densities, inferences concerning one or more means and standard deviations. Reliability, correlation and regression, curve fitting, and quality control charts are introduced. Graphing calculators are required. Computer applications may be included.

## MATH 7113 - Economic Analysis for Engineering Tech

This course is designed for the engineering technology student. It covers techniques for comparing alternative projects based on economic considerations; time value of money; present worth; equivalent uniform annual cost; rate of return on investment; minimum cost life; expected value; decisions under risk; effects of income tax and inflation.

## MATH 5900 - Directed Study

A student may contract from one to four credit hours of independent study in mathematics through an arrangement with an instructor of mathematics. The student and instructor will develop a course of study which must be approved by the department chairperson and the school dean. The instructor and the student will confer regularly regarding the student's progress.

## MATH 4900 - Directed Study

A student may contract for one to six credit hours of independent study through an arrangement with an instructor who agrees to direct such a study. The student will submit a plan acceptable to the instructor and to the department chair. The instructor and student will confer regularly regarding the process of the study.
