• MATH 002: Intermediate Algebra. Topics include factoring and expanding, algebra techniques, the quadratic formula, inequalities and linear equations, exponents and radicals, and long division.
• MATH 115: Calculus I. Topics include basic properties of derivatives, applications of the derivative to business and economics, applications including optimization, exponential models, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, and integration by substitution.
• MATH 125: Calculus I. Topics include exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions, limits and continuity, derivatives, applications of differentiation, and basic properties and applications of antiderivatives.
• MATH 126: Calculus II. Topics include integration techniques, applications of integration, convergence of infinite series, Taylor series, complex numbers, vector and plane geometry.
• MATH 127: Calculus III. Topics include differentiation in multiple variables, the CBS inequality, optimization, Lagrange multipliers, matrices and determinants, 3D geometry, integration in several variables, and vector-analysis theorems.
• MATH 145: Honors Calculus I. Topics include basic properties of the real numbers, epsilon-delta definition of limits, continuity of real functions, trigonometry and the angle-addition formulas, strange functions, applications of the Mean Value Theorem, optimization, Newton’s Method, sigma notation and closed-form sums, Riemann sums, integration techniques and applications, problem-solving, and probability.
• MATH 126: Calculus II Enhanced. Similar topics to MATH 126, but taught 5 days a week in a lab setting. Emphasis on problem solving, algebra, and exploration.
