MATH 221: R/Calculus I
Topics studied are limits and continuity; derivatives and antiderivatives of the algebraic, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, and inverse functions; the definite integral; and the fundamental theorem of the calculus.
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.
