Department Assistant: Marsha Peruo

## General Information

Students who have special placement problems, or are unclear about their level, should make an appointment with a faculty member or the chair.

Two help rooms, one in 404 Mathematics and one in 333 Milbank, will be open all term (hours will be posted on the door and the online) for students seeking individual help and counseling from the instructors and teaching assistants. No appointments are necessary. However, resources are limited and students who seek individual attention should make every effort to come during the less popular hours and to avoid the periods just before midterm and final exams.

## Courses for First-Year Students

The systematic study of Mathematics begins with one of the following alternative sequences:

Code | Title | Points |
---|---|---|

Calculus I, II, III, IV | ||

MATH UN1101 | Calculus I | |

MATH UN1102 | Calculus II | |

MATH UN1201 | Calculus III | |

MATH UN1202 | Calculus IV | |

Honors Math A-B | ||

MATH UN1207 | Honors Mathematics A | |

MATH UN1208 | Honors Mathematics B |

Credit is allowed for only one of the calculus sequences. The calculus sequence is a standard course in differential and integral calculus. *Honors Mathematics A-B * is for exceptionally well-qualified students who have strong advanced placement scores. It covers second-year Calculus (MATH UN1201 Calculus III–MATH UN1202 Calculus IV) and MATH UN2010 Linear Algebra, with an emphasis on theory.

*Calculus II *is NOT a prerequisite for *Calculus III*, so students who plan to take only one year of calculus may choose between I and II or I and III. The latter requires a B or better in Calculus I and is a recommended option for some majors.

MATH UN2000 An Introduction to Higher Mathematics is a course that can be taken in their first or second year by students with an aptitude for mathematics who would like to practice writing and understanding mathematical proofs.

## Placement in the Calculus Sequence

**College Algebra and Analytical Geometry **is a refresher course for students who intend to take Calculus but do not have adequate background for it.

**Advanced Placement: **Students who have passed the advanced placement test for Calculus AB with a grade of 4 or 5 or BC with a grade of 4 receive 3 points of credit. Those who passed Calculus BC with a grade of 5 will receive 4 points of credit or 6 points on placing into Calculus III or Honors Math A and completing with a grade of C or better.

**Calculus I, II, III:** Students who have not previously studied calculus should begin with Calculus I. Students with 4 or higher on the Calculus AB or BC advanced placement test may start with Calculus II. Students with 5 on the Calculus BC test should start with Calculus III.

**Honors Mathematics A:** Students who have passed the Calculus BC advanced placement test with a grade of 5, and who have strong mathematical talent and motivation, should start with Honors Mathematics A. This is the most attractive course available to well-prepared, mathematically talented first-year students, whether or not they intend to be mathematics majors. Students who contemplate taking this course should consult with the instructor. If this is not possible ahead of time, they should register and attend the first class.

**Chair:** David A. Bayer (Professor)

## Requirements for the Major

The major programs in both Mathematics and Applied Mathematics are appropriate for students who plan to continue their training in graduate school. The major in Mathematical Sciences combines the elements of Mathematics, Computer Science and Statistics. It is designed to prepare students for employment in business, administration, and finance, and also give excellent background for someone planning graduate study in a social science field. Students who plan to obtain a teaching qualification in mathematics should plan their course of study carefully with an advisor, since courses that are too far from mathematics do not count towards certification.

**For a major in Mathematics: **14 courses as follows:

Four courses in calculus or Honors Mathematics A-B, including Advanced Placement Credit. Six courses in mathematics numbered at or above 2000, and four courses in any combination of mathematics and cognate courses. The courses in mathematics must include:

Code | Title | Points |
---|---|---|

MATH GU4062 | Introduction To Modern Analysis II (II) | |

MATH UN3951 | Undergraduate Seminars in Mathematics I (at least one term) | |

or MATH UN3952 | Undergraduate Seminars in Mathematics II |

* | Note: It is strongly recommended that the sequences MATH GU4041 Introduction to Modern Algebra I - MATH GU4062 Introduction To Modern Analysis II and MATH GU4061 Introduction To Modern Analysis I - MATH GU4062 Introduction To Modern Analysis II be taken in separate years. |

However, students who are not contemplating graduate study in mathematics may replace one or both of the two terms of MATH GU4061 Introduction To Modern Analysis I - MATH GU4062 Introduction To Modern Analysis II by one or two of the following courses: MATH UN2500 Analysis and Optimization, MATH UN3007 Complex Variables, or MATH GU4032 Fourier Analysis and may replace MATH GU4042 Introduction to Modern Algebra II by one of MATH UN3020 Number Theory and Cryptography or MATH UN3025 Making, Breaking Codes. In exceptional cases, the chair will approve the substitution of certain more advanced courses for those mentioned above.

### Industrial Engineering and Operations Research

**CSOR E4010 Graph Theory: A Combinatorial View.** *3 points*.

Lect: 3.**Not offered during 2017-18 academic year.**

Prerequisites: Linear Algebra, or instructor's permission.

Graph Theory is an important part of the theoretical basis of operations research. A good understanding of the basic fundamentals of graph theory is necessary in order to apply the theory successfully in the future. This is an introductory course in graph theory with emphasis on its combinatorial aspects. It covers basic definitions, and some fundamental concepts in graph theory and its applications. Topics include trees and forests graph coloring, connectivity, matching theory and others. This course will provide a solid foundation for students in the IEOR department, on which further courses may build.
