MATH 161 Calculus I

A traditional introduction to differential and integral calculus. Functions, limits, continuity, differentiation, the Intermediate Value and Mean Value Theorems, curve sketching, optimization problems, related rates, definite and indefinite integrals, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, logarithmic and exponential functions. Applications to the natural and social sciences.

MATH 212 Linear Algebra

An introduction to linear algebra in abstract vector spaces with particular emphasis on \(\mathbf{R}^n\). Topics include: Gaussian elimination, matrix algebra, linear independence, span, basis, linear transformations, determinants, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and diagonalization. Some of the basic theorems will be proved rigorously; other results will be demonstrated informally.
