Supporting Courses

These courses give computer science majors a strong background in mathematics.  Sometimes computer science majors will gone on and take another three courses in mathematics in order to complete a minor in mathematics.  Occasionally, students like current senior Brian Heller double major in computer science and mathematics.

MATH 121 - Single Variable Calculus

A course in the basic concepts of single-variable calculus. Included are functions and their graphs, limits, derivatives, applications of the derivative, and an introduction to integration.

MATH 220 - Linear Algebra

Systems of linear equations, matrix algebra, dependence and independence, vector spaces, transformations. Applications of linear algebra are studied.

MATH 233 - Multivariable Calculus

Rectangular, cylindrical, and spherical coordinate systems in three dimensions, vectors, functions of several variables, limits and continuity, partial derivatives, optimization techniques, multiple integrals (including alternate coordinate systems).

MATH 235 - Advanced Single Variable Calculus

The second half of the single-variable calculus. Included are techniques of integration, applications of integration, infinite sequences and series, polar coordinates, and complex numbers.
