This course presents the fundamental concepts and applications of linear algebra with emphasis on Euclidean space. Significant goals of the course are that the student develop the ability to perform meaningful computations and to write accurate proofs. Topics include bases, subspaces, dimension, determinants, characteristic polynomials, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and especially matrix representations of linear transformations and change of basis. Applications may be drawn from areas such as optimization, statistics, biology, physics, and signal processing.

This course involves **collaborative learning**. It is an introduction to single variable calculus aimed at students who have seen some calculus before, either before matriculation or in introductory calculus course (Math 1). Math 3 begins by revisiting the core topics in Math 1 - convergence, limits, and derivatives - in greater depth before moving to applications of differentiation such as related rates, finding extreme values, and optimization. The course then turns to integration theory, introducing the integral via Riemann sums, the fundamental theorem of calculus, and basic techniques of integration.

This course is a sequel to Math 3 and provides an introduction to Taylor series and functions of several variables. The first third of the course is devoted to approximation of functions by Taylor polynomials and representing functions by Taylor series. The second third of the course introduces vector-valued functions. It begins with the study of vector geometry, equations of lines and planes, and space curves. The last third of the course is devoted to studying differential calculus of functions of several variables.

This course is designed to provide students with the basic tools for building and analyzing mathematical models in Biology primarily using ordinary differential equations. In addition, you will learn how to analyze and simulate the models. You will also learn to interpret and communicate the results in the context of biology.

This course is a sequel to Math 8 and provides an introduction to calculus of vector-valued functions. The course starts with iterated, double, triple, and surface integrals including change of coordinates. The remainder of the course is devoted to vector fields, line integrals, Green’s theorem, curl and divergence, and Stokes’ theorem.

This course is a survey of important types of differential equations, both linear and nonlinear. Topics include the study of systems of ordinary differential equations using eigenvectors and eigenvalues, numerical solutions of first and second order equations and of systems, and the solution of elementary partial differential equations using Fourier series.
