Currently Teaching

MATH-190
3 Credits
This course introduces students to ideas and techniques from discrete mathematics that are widely used in Computer Science. Students will learn about the fundamentals of propositional and predicate calculus, set theory, relations, recursive structures and counting. This course will help increase students’ mathematical sophistication and their ability to handle abstract problems.
MATH-371
3 Credits
This course provides an introduction to the study of the set of integers and their algebraic properties. Topics include prime factorization and divisibility, linear Diophantine equations, congruences, arithmetic functions, primitive roots, and quadratic residues.
MATH-221
4 Credits
This course is principally a study of the calculus of functions of two or more variables, but also includes a study of vectors, vector-valued functions and their derivatives. The course covers limits, partial derivatives, multiple integrals, Stokes' Theorem, Green's Theorem, the Divergence Theorem, and applications in physics. Credit cannot be granted for both this course and MATH-219.
MATH-441
3 Credits
This course covers basic set theory, number theory, groups, subgroups, cyclic and permutation groups, Lagrange and Sylow theorems, quotient groups, and isomorphism theorems. Group Theory finds applications in other scientific disciplines like physics and chemistry.
MATH-671
3 Credits
This course is an introduction to the standard results and techniques of number theory. Topics include divisibility, congruences, Diophantine equations, Moebius inversion, quadratic reciprocity, and primitive roots. Cryptography and other applications will be discussed. Projects may be required.
