GSCI-3060 4 hours Environmental Science for Middle School Educators –Sp Introduction to the interdisciplinary study of the dynamic relationships that exist between the earth’s organisms and their environment and how human activity affects these relationships. Students will identify and analyze environmental problems both natural and human-made and identify and explore sustainable solutions to the problems. This course will include pertinent pedagogy for teaching environmental science in a middle school setting. Three lectures and one laboratory session per week. This course does not satisfy the general education requirement for biology.

MATH-1880 Topics in Calculus –Fa, Sp, Su 1–3 hours This course is for students who are attempting to transfer credit for MATH-1710 or MATH-1720 Calculus I and II when those transferred courses lack some of the topics contained in MATH- 1710 or MATH-1720. It requires full participation in a MATH-1710 or MATH-1720 course during the sections in which the student’s transferred course is found to be deficient or in a stand-alone course offered during Summer School I. Prerequisite: GMTH-1030 Precalculus or equivalent; permission of instructor. Corequisite: partial transfer credit for MATH-1710 and/or MATH-1720 or approved transient credit for a Calculus I or II course that will provide less than full credit for MATH-1710 or MATH 1720. MATH-1990 3 hours Beautiful Math Structures and Thinking –Fa This course introduces freshmen math majors to interesting mathematical ideas and applications beyond the usual scope of standard math courses. Topics include an introduction to propositional logic, function theory, and infinite sets. Other topics will be chosen from elementary number theory, modular arithmetic, error-correcting codes, Fibonacci numbers and the golden ratio, fractals, discrete dynamical systems and chaos, Euler and Hamilton Circuits, democracy and impossibility theorems, game theory, the Platonic solids, n-dimensional space, and other topics up to the discretion of the instructor. MATH-2210 Logic and Methods of Proof –Fa 3 hours Introduction to formal mathematical logic; emphasis on preparing students for the abstraction of upper-division courses. Special attention is given to the development of students’ skills with a variety of methods of proof, using examples from numerous areas. Prerequisites: MATH-1720 Calculus II; MATH- 1990 Beautiful Math Structures and Thinking; or permission of instructor. MATH-2510 Discrete Math for Computer Science –Sp 3 hours An introduction to mathematical foundations of computer science, including propositional and predicate calculus, methods of proof, sets and relations, recurrences, graphs and trees, and program correctness and proofs. This course does not satisfy any requirements for the B.A. or B.S. in mathematics or the B.A. in integrated mathematics education. Prerequisite: MATH-1710 Calculus I. MATH-2520 3 hours Discrete Math and Probability Principles for Computer Science –Sp An introduction to mathematical foundations of computer science, including propositional and predicate calculus, methods of proof, sets and relations, recurrences, program correctness and proofs, probability models, random variables, probability distributions, estimation, and hypothesis testing. This course does not satisfy any requirements for the B.A. or B.S. in mathematics or the B.A. in integrated mathematics education Prerequisites: MATH-1720 Calculus II; EGCP-1010 Digital Logic Design. MATH-2710 Calculus III –Fa, Sp 3 hours Introduction to differential and integral calculus of several variables, multiple integrals, vector analysis, line integrals, and surface integrals.

MATH-2740 Differential Equations –Fa, Sp 3 hours Study of the standard techniques employed in the solution of differential equations with emphasis on those arising from physical problems. Prerequisite: MATH-1720 Calculus II or equivalent. MATH-2800 LaTeX for Technical Documents –Sp 1 hour In this course students will be introduced to the typesetting language of LaTeX through the use of tutorials, example documents, and homework assignments. They will learn to easily prepare professional-looking theses, conference papers, and journal papers. They will also learn how to create professional- looking presentations, homework, quizzes, examinations, syllabi, resumés, and curriculum vitae.
