## Classes

• MATH 112: Precalculus

This course is designed primarily for the student who needs a foundation in algebra and trigonometry for the study of calculus. The concept of function and graphical representation of functions is stressed. Topics covered: real numbers; algebra of real numbers including equations and inequalities; functions and their graphs including polynomials, rational expressions, logarithmic and exponential, trigonometric; algebra of the trigonometric functions including identities, equations, polar coordinates, complex numbers, systems of equations.

• MATH 223: Calculus III

Vector calculus, functions of several variables, partial derivatives, multiple integrals, space analytic geometry, and line integrals.

• MATH 360: Probability

Topics include probability definitions and theorems; discrete and continuous random variables including the binomial, hypergeometric, Poisson and normal random variables. Both the theory and applications of probability will be included.

• MATH 366: Math Fdtn of Actuarial Sci-Lab

The purpose of this course is to develop knowledge of the fundamental tools of probability that are useful for quantitatively assessing risk. The application of these tools to problems encountered in actuarial science is emphasized. A thorough command of the supporting calculus is assumed. Additionally, a very basic knowledge of insurance and risk management is assumed.
