This course is the culminating experience of mathematics majors. It is the culmination of hard work, dedication and practice. By the time students have graduated from NMSU, they should have developed a command of all the concepts taught in high school with the ability to reason and reason intuitively. Students should be ready for jobs in many areas including technical fields, such as engineering, medicine, or the sciences. Topics include: Probability and randomness. Operational calculus and trigonometry. Differential and integral calculus. Poisson’s, Stirling’s, Euler’s and Pascal’s approximations. Graphs and polygons. Sets and relations. Functions. Big O notation. Discrete probability and significance tests. Algebraic variables and equations. Computation using arrays. Matrices. And much more. Prerequisites: MATH 1140 with a minimum grade of C- or MATH 1141 with a minimum grade of C-Exclusion: MATH 2220, MATH 1700, MATH 1701, MATH 1390, COMP 1390 For more information, search for this course here.
The sequence of mathematics courses begins with a short exposition of key mathematical ideas. Then, examples and exercises are used to get students up to speed on the concepts. Next, applications are developed and problems addressed. Finally, the course concludes with a significant number of problems on some topics. After successfully completing MATH 1140 or MATH 1141, students may be placed in MATH 1390. - Lab Fee: $20
This course is an introductory course to discrete mathematics. The concepts that will be covered are permutations, combinations, mathematical induction, Boolean algebra, polynomials, quadratic equations, plane and space curves, and linear inequalities. Theorems and problems associated with each topic will be presented in a format that is designed to build students' ability to reason inductively from the most basic principles.
Math 1104 is a first semester calculus sequence designed to prepare students for further study in mathematics and related disciplines. This course covers linear functions, polynomial non-linear functions and the inverse of a polynomial and is followed by a second semester limits and continuity sequence Math 2231 and Math 2240. d2c66b5586
