Courses

An introduction to the main concepts and techniques of college algebra. Topics include: linear, quadratic, exponential and logarithmic functions, as well as modeling of data using functions. This is the first semester of the college math sequence designed for students interested in Biology and Life Sciences. This course fulfills the general education core requirements for Biology and Life Sciences majors who matriculated prior to Fall 2012 and has been approved by University Studies Curriculum for students matriculating in Fall 2012 or later.

Continuation of MTH 211. Ordinary differential equations of the first order, linear differential equations of the nth order, some nonlinear second order equations, series solutions and Laplace transforms.

Analytic functions, differentiation, integration, conformal mapping, calculus of residues and infinite series.

Numerical methods for solving parabolic, hyperbolic, and elliptic partial differential equations. The course will emphasize the concepts of consistency, convergence and stability. Topics include: implicit and explicit methods, truncation error, Von Newmann stability analysis, and the Lax equivalence theorem.
