A student may contract for 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 chair and the school dean. The instructor and the student will confer regularly regarding the student's progress.
This course is designed for Information Technology and Mathematics and Science students. The course will introduce and discuss the following topics: functions, relations, sets, logic, counting methods, methods of proof, network graphs and trees, algorithmic analysis, complexity and computability, and matrices. A graphing calculator is required.
A continuation of MATH 1123 emphasizing probability distributions with predictive and inferential aspects of statistics: the normal distribution with applications, central limit theorem, hypothesis testing and estimation as applied to the mean, standard deviation, and proportions. Other topics include normal approximation to binomial, Chi-Square applications, linear regression, correlation, and nonparametric statistics. Use of calculators for analysis and computer statistical packages are utilized.
This is a one-semester (non-calculus based) course which covers descriptive as well as inferential statistics. Included are topics on collecting, organizing, and summarizing data. Other topics include correlation and regression, probability, normal and binomial probability distributions, normal approximation to the binomial, central limit theorem, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, and nonparametric statistics.
A continuation of MATH 1084 with a concentrated study of integration techniques along with applications. Applications include but are not limited to areas, volumes, arc length, and work problems to name a few. The course involves the methods of integration and applications as they apply to both the algebraic and transcendental functions. Infinite Series will be included. Graphing Calculator required. Student cannot receive credit for both MATH 2094 and MATH 2074.
A continuation of MATH 1063 with further study in differentiation and integration of both the algebraic and transcendental functions. Applications will be included in each topic. An introduction to Matrix Algebra may be included. Graphing Calculator required. Student cannot receive credit for MATH 2074 if they have received credit for MATH 1084.
This course is designed for the college student who has demonstrated mastery of algebra skills and techniques. Topics include trigonometric functions and their properties with the study of identities, formulas, equations, and graphs. Also included are the solution of right and oblique triangles using the law of sines and cosines. In addition, time is spent exploring logarithmic and exponential functions. Emphasis is placed on contextual applications and problem solving. A graphing calculator is required. Credit cannot be received for both MATH 2043 and MATH 1054.
The content of this course will apply geometrical truths in a variety of contexts, including knots, tessellations and graphical symmetry. In addition, it will cover some principles of Gestalt perceptual properties, the exploration and creation of models of geometric art from other cultures, and any additional material deemed suitable by the instructor. The material will involve experimentation by the student in a geometric forum to discover or verify properties of two- and three-dimensional objects and patterns.
This course is designed for curricula where quantitative reasoning is required. The course content includes critical thinking skills, arithmetic and algebra concepts, statistical concepts, financial concepts, as well as numerical systems and applications. A graphing calculator is required.
This is a one semester course whose basic objective is to develop an interest and appreciation for Mathematics in students with little background in the subject. Included in the course are topics from the following areas: Problem Solving, Inductive Reasoning, Logic, Sets, Probability, Statistics, Consumer Math, and Geometry. It may also include topics from the following areas: History of Math, Number Systems, Metric, Algebra, Linear Programming, Finite Math, Matrices, Computer Applications.
