INTD 308: NeuWrite:CollaborativeSci Wr I
This course, linked to Collaborative Science Writing II, sees students investigate creative ways to communicate scientific research. Students will work in collaborative pairs to produce a creative nonfiction science essay for a popular audience. Students will learn skills useful to grant writing, science reviewing, and revision while deepening their understanding of both scientific research and creative writing. Students are required to also take Collaborative Science Writing II. Prerequisites: Permission of instructor. Co-requisites: INTD 309. Credits: 1 (1-0) Offered every fall.
MATH 222: Calculus II
Derivatives and antiderivatives of the transcendental functions, methods of integration, applications of definite integrals, sequences, improper integrals, and series. Prerequisites: MATH 221. Offered every semester
MATH 239: Intro to Mathematical Proof
The course will provide an introduction to the language of advanced mathematics and to mathematical proof. It will emphasize rigorous argument and the practice of proof in various mathematical contexts. Topics will include logic, set theory, cardinality, methods of proof, and induction. Other mathematical topics chosen at the discretion of the instructor will be included as material through which proving skills will be honed. Prerequisites: MATH 222 or permission of the department. Offered every semester
MATH 324: Real Analysis I
A study of the underlying theory of elementary calculus. Topics include the structure and properties of the real numbers, sequences, functions, limits, continuity, the derivative, the Riemann integral, and Taylor's theorems. Prerequisites: MATH 223 and MATH 239. Offered every semester
