Undergraduate Research

Independent research conducted under the guidance of a faculty member.

Knot Theory and Grid Homology

Special topics course offered in Spring 2020 by Jennifer Hom.

College Algebra

Study of the properties of algebraic, exponential, and logarithmic functions as needed for pre-calculus and calculus.

Statistical Theory

This course is an introduction to theoretical statistics for students with a background in probability. A mathematical formalism for inference on experimental data will be developed.

Probability Theory

This course is a mathematical introduction to probability theory, covering random variables, moments, multivariate distributions, law of large numbers, central limit theorem, and large deviations.

A Second Course on Linear Algebra

This course will cover important topics in linear algebra not usually discussed in a first-semester course, featuring a mixture of theory and applications.

Probability and Statistics with Applications

Introduction to probability, probability distributions, point estimation, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, linear regression and analysis of variance.

Introduction to Discrete Mathematics

Mathematical logic and proof, mathematical induction, counting methods, recurrence relations, algorithms and complexity, graph theory and graph algorithms.

Foundations of Mathematical Proof

An introduction to proofs in advanced mathematics, intended as a transition to upper division courses including MATH 4107, 4150 and 4317. Fundamentals of mathematical abstraction including sets, logic, equivalence relations, and functions. Thorough development of the basic proof techniques: direct, contrapositive, existence, contradiction, and induction. Introduction to proofs in analysis and algebra.
