Not open to students who received a scored of 4 or better on the AP Calculus BC test or completed MATH 211 with a grade of C or better.

MATH 232 Linear Algebra 6 credits
Linear algebra centers on the study of highly structured functions called linear transformations. Given the abundance of nonlinear functions in mathematics, it may come as a surprise that restricting to linear ones opens the door to a rich and powerful theory that finds applications throughout mathematics, statistics, computer science, and the natural and social sciences. Linear transformations are everywhere, once we know what to look for. They appear in calculus as the functions that are used to define lines and planes in Euclidean space. In fact, differentiation is also a linear transformation that takes one function to another. The course focuses on developing geometric intuition as well as computational matrix methods. Topics include kernel and image of a linear transformation, vector spaces, determinants, eigenvectors and eigenvalues.
This course is not open to students who have received credit for MATH 134.
 Fall 2024
 FSR, Formal or Statistical Reasoning

Student has completed any of the following course(s): MATH 120 – Calculus 2 or MATH 211 – Introduction to Multivariable Calculus with a grade of C or better or equivalent.

MATH 241 Ordinary Differential Equations 6 credits
Ordinary differential equations are a fundamental language used by mathematicians, scientists, and engineers to describe processes involving continuous change. In this course we develop ordinary differential equations as models of real world phenomena and explore the mathematical ideas that arise within these models. Topics include separation of variables; phase portraits; equilibria and their stability; nondimensionalization; bifurcation analysis; and modeling of physical, biological, chemical, and social processes.

STAT 120 Introduction to Statistics 6 credits
Introduction to statistics and data analysis. Practical aspects of statistics will be emphasized, including extensive use of programming in the statistical software R, interpretation and communication of results. Topics include: exploratory data analysis, correlation and linear regression, design of experiments, the normal distribution, randomization approach to inference, sampling distributions, estimation, and hypothesis testing. Students who have taken Mathematics 211 are encouraged to consider the more advanced Mathematics 240/Statistics 250 Probability/Statistical Inference sequence.
