Credits from this course are not applicable toward a degree.MA-112 Intermediate AlgebraIn this course students are introduced to equations and inequalities and learn the language of algebra and related functions, including polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions. Other topics include solving equations, inequalities and systems of linear equations; performing operations with real numbers, complex numbers and functions; constructing and analyzing graphs of functions; and using mathematical modeling to solve application problems.MA-114 Algebra and TrigonometryTopics in this course include the following. Algebra: basic operations on real and complex numbers, fractions, exponents and radicals, determinates. As well as solution of linear, fractional, quadratic and system equations. Trigonometry: definition and identities, angular measurements, solving triangles, vectors, graphs and logarithms.MA-124 Discrete MathematicsLogic sets and sequences; algorithms, divisibility and matrices; proof, induction and recursion; counting methods and probability; relations, closure and equivalence relations, graphs and trees; Boolean algebra.MA-230 Introduction to MATLABIntended for students with little or no experience with the software, the course covers its basic operations and features. Applications in engineering, physics and mathematics are examined, providing a grounding for developing tools for students’ own projects. Topics include import/export data, create and manipulate variables, program and run scripts (M-files), use graphics tools to display data, use the built-in help features.MA-262 Calculus IIMethods of integration: completing the square, substitution, partial fractions, integration by parts, trigonometric integrals, power series, parametric equations. Partial derivatives. Directional derivatives. Introduction to multiple integrals MA-330 Linear AlgebraThis course introduces the study of linear systems of equations, vector spaces, and linear transformations. Students will solve systems of linear equations as a basic tool in many mathematical procedures used in science and engineering. Topics include solving linear equations, performing matrix algebra, calculating determinants, finding eigenvalues and eigenvectors and developing an understanding of a matrix as a linear transformation relative to a basis of a vector space.MA-345 Probability and Statistics for Engineers Sets and methods of counting. Probability density functions, expected values and correlations. Binomial, Poisson, exponential and normal distribution. Central limit theorem and statistical estimation. Introduction to stochastic processes. Applications to noise and reliability. MA-355 Numerical AnalysisNumber systems, floating-point arithmetic and error analysis. Taylor, interpolating and mini-max polynomials. Integration and differentiation. Methods of solving equations, systems of linear equations
