Currently Teaching

MATH-182
4 Credits
This is the second in a two-course sequence intended for students majoring in mathematics, science, or engineering. It emphasizes the understanding of concepts, and using them to solve physical problems. The course covers techniques of integration including integration by parts, partial fractions, improper integrals, applications of integration, representing functions by infinite series, convergence and divergence of series, parametric curves, and polar coordinates.
MATH-241
3 Credits
This course is an introduction to the basic concepts of linear algebra, and techniques of matrix manipulation. Topics include linear transformations, Gaussian elimination, matrix arithmetic, determinants, vector spaces, linear independence, basis, null space, row space, and column space of a matrix, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, change of basis, similarity and diagonalization. Various applications are studied throughout the course.
MATH-181A
4 Credits
This is the first in a two-course sequence intended for students majoring in mathematics, science, or engineering. The course includes the same topics as MATH-181, but the focus of the workshop component is different. Whereas workshops attached to 181 emphasize concept development and real-world applications, the workshops of MATH-181A emphasize skill development and provide just-in-time review of precalculus material as needed. The course covers functions, limits, continuity, the derivative, rules of differentiation, applications of the derivative, Riemann sums, definite integrals, and indefinite integrals.
