Mathematics (BA/BS) Teaching Emphasis :: 1.12 FEATURED COURSES
Exploration of problems in algebra, trigonometry, analytic geometry, calculus, Euclidean geometry, probability, statistics and discrete mathematics using technology. The course is intended as a capstone study for prospective secondary teachers of mathematics. Graphing calculators and computers will be employed to illustrate and encourage conjecturing and problem solving with an emphasis on applications. In addition, a brief survey will be made of major documents and resources pertinent to secondary mathematics teachers, such as the NCTM Standards.
Covers real and complex vector spaces, subspaces, linear operators, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, inner product spaces, operators on inner product spaces, singular value decomposition and pseudo-inverse, canonical forms.
A course designed to prepare math, computer science, and engineering majors for a background in abstraction, notation, and critical thinking for the mathematics most directly related to computer science.Topics include: logic, relations, functions, basic set theory, countability and counting arguments, proof techniques, mathematical induction, combinatorics, discrete probability, recursion, sequence and recurrence, elementary number theory, graph theory, and mathematical proof techniques.
