MATH-233
4 Credits
This is an introductory course in linear algebra and ordinary differential equations in which a scientific computing package is used to clarify mathematical concepts, visualize problems, and work with large systems. The course covers matrix algebra, the basic notions and techniques of ordinary differential equations with constant coefficients, and the physical situation in which they arise.
MATH-421
3 Credits
This course explores problem solving, formulation of the mathematical model from physical considerations, solution of the mathematical problem, testing the model and interpretation of results. Problems are selected from the physical sciences, engineering, and economics.
MATH-219
3 Credits
This course is principally a study of the calculus of functions of two or more variables, but also includes the study of vectors, vector-valued functions and their derivatives. The course covers limits, partial derivatives, multiple integrals, and includes applications in physics. Credit cannot be granted for both this course and MATH-221.
MATH-220
1 Credits
This course introduces students to the concepts, techniques, and central theorems of vector calculus. It includes a study of line integrals, conservative vector fields, the flux of vector fields across curves and surfaces, Green’s Theorem, the Divergence Theorem, and Stokes’ Theorem. Credit may not be earned for this class if it is earned in COS-MATH-221.
