MATH 222: Calculus II
Topics studied are methods of integration, applications of definite integrals, sequences, improper integrals, and series, parametric equations and polar coordinates.

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.

MATH 330: Abstract Algebra
A study of the basic properties of groups, rings, and integral domains, including the fundamental theorem of group homomorphisms. The concepts basic to the development of algebraic systems are studied initially.
