    Graduate Mathematics Courses

    APPLIED STATISTICS

    Mathematics 542, Credits: 3

    This course will cover the basics of statistical testing, regression analysis, experimental design, analysis of variance, the use of computers to analyze statistical problems.

    INFINITE PROCESSES FOR THE ELEMENTARY TEACHER

    Mathematics 552, Credits: 3

    This course is primarily for pre-service elementary and middle school teachers. Students will be introduced to the concepts of calculus, which include infinite precesses, limits, and continuity. In addition, dirivatives and integrals, and their relationship to area and change will be covered.

    DEVELOPMENT OF MATHEMATICS

    Mathematics 575, Credits: 3

    A study of the development of mathematical notation and ideas from prehistoric times to the present. Periods and topics will be chosen corresponding to the backgrounds and interests of the students.

    GEOMETRY FOR THE ELEMENTARY TEACHER

    Mathematics 616, Credits: 3

    A study of the intuitive, informal geometry of sets of points in space. Topics include elementary constructions, coordinates and graphs, tessellations, transformations, problem solving, and symmetries of polygons and polyhedra and use of geometry computer software.

    THEORY OF NUMBERS

    Mathematics 617, Credits: 3

    A study of the properties of integers, representation of integers in a given base, properties of primes, arithmetic functions, modulo arithmetic. Diophantine equations and quadratic residues. Consideration is also given to some famous problems in number theory.

    MATHEMATICS FOR HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS I

    Mathematics 621, Credits: 3

    The course revisits the high school curriculum from an advanced perspective. The focus is on deepening understanding of concepts, highlighting connections and solving challenging problems. The mathematical content includes number systems, functions, equations, integers, and polynomials. Connections to geometry are emphasized throughout the course.

    TOPOLOGY

    Mathematics 631, Credits: 3

    An introduction to point-set topology, including such topics as topological spaces, mappings, connectedness, compactness, separation axioms, metric spaces, complete spaces, product paces and function spaces.

    MATHEMATICAL STATISTICS

    Mathematics 642, Credits: 4

    This course will cover moment generating functions, moment of linear combinations of random variables, conditional expectation, functions of random variables, sampling distributions, the theory of estimation, Bayesian estimation, hypothesis testing, nonparametric tests, and linear models.

    PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS

    Mathematics 659, Credits: 3

    Fourier analysis, partial differential equations and boundary value problems, complex variables, and its potential theory.

    ADVANCED CALCULUS

    Mathematics 664, Credits: 3

    This course presents a rigorous treatment of the differential and integral calculus of single variable functions, convergence theory of numerical sequences and series, uniform convergence theory of sequences and series of functions, metric spaces, function of several real variables, and the inverse function theorem. This course contains a written component.
