World Geography
This course examines the implications of global location and topography for the people of planet Earth. Students will explore how geography shapes the dynamics of human societies, with an emphasis on the geoenvironmental, geopolitical, and geosocial phenomena that help to define the modern world.

PHL

Calculus I: SingleVariable Calculus
Calculus is the mathematical study of change that has widespread applications in science, engineering, economics and business. This course provides a rigorous introduction to singlevariable calculus. Topics include limits, continuity, differentiation and integration of algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions, applications of derivatives, and integration, including the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. This course will encourage students to think beyond memorizing formulas and to work towards understanding concepts. Students may not take both MAT 210 and MAT 225 for credit.

MAT
275
Calculus II: Integration & Series
This course is a continuation of MAT 225 that deepens a student's understanding of singlevariable calculus. Students will learn new techniques of integration, including substitution, integration by parts, partial fractions, and integration tables. This course will also extend a student's knowledge of addition. That is, students already know how to add two, three, or n numbers together but, in this course they will learn how to add an infinitely many numbers together. This will enable students to represent differentiable functionsincluding exponential, trigonometric and logarithmic functionsas functions that look like polynomials with infinitely many terms. In doing so, students will enhance their abilities to evaluate and estimate integrals. Finally, students will also learn about parametric curves and polar coordinatesboth useful tools for describing the motion of moving objects such as projectiles, planets, or satellitesin order to apply singlevariable calculus skills in additional settings. Students may not take both MAT 211 and MAT 275 for credit.

MAT

Mathematical Proof and Problem Solving
This course introduces students to the language and methods used to create and write mathematical proofs and solve problems. Methods of proof will include: direct, contrapositive, contradiction, and induction. Methods of problem solving will be based on Polya's four steps for problem solving. Students will learn about and utilize the many functions of proof including: verification, explanation, communication, discovery, justification, and inquiry. The course will also explore the relationship between problem solving and the process of proving. Students will explore fundamental abstract concepts in mathematics including: functions and relations, set theory, number theory, and logic.

Calculus III: Multivariable Calculus
Many realworld applications of calculus in science, engineering, economics, and business employ functions with many variables. This course extends the basic concepts of singlevariable calculus developed in MAT 225 and MAT 275 to functions of several variables. Topics include vectors, the geometry of space, vectorvalued functions, motion in space, partial derivatives and multiple integrals.

MAT

Differential Equations
Differential equations are useful in modeling realworld phenomenon involving rates of change such as the spread of disease, the change in a population, the free fall of an object, and the decay of a radioactive substance. This is a first course in differential equations. Topics include solving first and higherorder differential equations and modeling with first and higherorder differential equations.

MAT
350
Applied Linear Algebra
This is a first course in linear algebra and matrices. Topics include systems of linear equations, linear independence, matrices of linear transformations, matrix algebra, determinants, vector spaces, eigenvalues and eigenvectors. After mastering the basic concepts and skills, students will use their knowledge of linear algebra to model a selection of applied mathematics problems in business, science, computer science and economics.

MAT

Abstract Algebra
Algebra is concerned with sets of objects and operations on these sets. This course will take students beyond the real number and polynomials to groups and other algebraic structures. In a modern, or abstract algebra course, one assumes a small number of basic properties as axioms and then proves many other properties from the axioms. This will assist the student in becoming more proficient at proofwriting.

MAT

Real Analysis
This course provides a theoretical foundation for singlevariable calculus concepts. Topics include the structure of the real numbers, sequences, continuity, differentiation and Riemann integration. This course will be run as a seminar that emphasize problem solving, proof writing and orally defending proofs.

MAT

Mathematical Modeling
This course introduces students to the art of mathematical modeling. Using a scenariobased approach, students will examine model construction, analysis, interpretation, and evaluation in a wide variety of contexts. Graphical, numerical, and symbolic techniques are employed to investigate real world data and phenomena.

MAT

Seminar in Applied Mathematics
In this culminating course, students apply mathematical and/or statistical skills to a particular focus area by completing a research project in applied mathematics. The topic of the project is selected from a list of topics in the applied sciences (economics, engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, epidemiology, pharmacology, physiology, music, or the social sciences) or may be chosen by the student with instructor approval. Application of technology tools is required to model the problem, obtain quantitative results, and complete the project.

Applied Statistics II: Regression Analysis
This is a second course in statistics that builds upon knowledge gained in MAT 240 or an AP statistics course. Students will learn to build statistical models and implement regression analysis in realworld problems from engineering, sociology, psychology, science, and business. Topics include multiple regression models (including firstorder, secondorder and interaction models with quantitative and qualitative variables), regression pitfalls, and residual analysis. Students will gain experience not only in the mechanics of regression analysis (often by means of a statistical software package) but also in deciding on appropriate models, selecting inferential techniques to answer a particular question, interpreting results, and diagnosing problems.

MAT

Operations Research
This course introduces students to deterministic modeling in the field of operations research. Using a scenariobased approach, students will explore linear, integer, and nonlinear programming as applied to classical and contemporary optimization problems.

MAT

Dynamical Modeling
This course introduces students to dynamical models within the field of science. Linear and nonlinear models and systems are explored through the lens of classical and contemporary science applications. Emphasis is placed on stability, bifurcations, and linearization.
