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.

An introduction to ordinary differential equations and their analysis. Topics cover first order linear and nonlinear ordinary differential equations, second order and higher order homogeneous and nonhomogeneous linear differential equations, the linear system of ordinary differential equations, qualitative analysis, numerical solutions, series solutions.

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.

An introduction to numerical linear algebra. Numerical linear algebra is fundamental to all areas of computational mathematics. This course will cover direct numerical methods for solving linear systems and linear least squares problems, stability and conditioning, computational methods for finding eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and iterative methods for both linear systems and eigenvalue problems.
