Due to COVID-19, classroom courses during Fall 2021 will be offered in a live online format. We continue to offer self-paced online courses.
Analytic Geometry and Calculus |MATH XB16A
Review the function concept and basic graphing techniques for simple functions in this introductory calculus course. Study the limit concept and continuity, as well as the derivative and its application to optimization problems, related rates, and curve sketching. Study the basic properties of logarithms and exponents, and get an introduction to the logarithmic and exponential functions and their derivatives, as well as an introduction to integration. Examine the development of calculus concepts and their applications to problems in business and biological sciences. Note: Intended for students outside the physical sciences and engineering who do not plan to take more advanced mathematics courses.
Calculus 1 |MATH X11
Get an introduction to differential and integral calculus. Examine the key concepts of limit, derivative, and continuity, as well as the main applications of derivatives in graphing and optimizing functions. Explore the fundamental theorem of calculus. Finally, apply the concept of integration to calculating volumes through solids of revolutions.
Calculus 2 |MATH X12
This continuation of Calculus 1 MATH X11 includes techniques of integration, applications of integration, infinite sequences and series, first-order ordinary differential equations, exact equations, second-order ordinary differential equations, oscillation and damping, and series solutions of ordinary differential equations.
College Algebra |MATH X403
Study concepts in college algebra, including the solving of linear, quadratic, and other algebraic equations and identities; developing mathematical models; and the graphing of linear, exponential, rational, logarithmic, and polynomial functions. You also learn 2-variable graphs of the conic sections, and general ideas and properties of functions, complex numbers, and matrix algebra operations.
Introduction to Biostatistics |MCELLBI X471
The health and behavioral sciences commonly use several statistical methods (linear regression, ANOVA, logistical regression, survival analysis, and nonparametric methods) to study biological problems. Gain the statistical skills to read scientific articles in your field, understand the statistical methods used and interpret the results on your own. Learn to use computers and software for statistical analysis. This course is designed for upper-division undergraduate students, premedical students, and professionals who are interested in biostatistics.
Introduction to Statistics |STAT X10
Learn basic concepts of probability and statistical inference, focusing on an intuitive approach to understanding concepts and methodologies. Get an introduction to statistical and critical thinking, including descriptive statistics, probability, sampling distributions, interval estimation, hypothesis testing, and regression.
Mathematics Refresher |MATH 1003
Brush up on essential math skills, including selected topics in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, probability, and statistics. This course is intended for students planning to take statistics or more advanced mathematics and for those preparing for the mathematics sections of standardized tests, including the GRE, GMAT, and MCAT.
Precalculus |MATH X9
Gain exposure to concepts in basic and advanced algebra and some trigonometry. Explore topics such as logarithms, solving or graphing linear equations, and factoring a polynomial at a more advanced level than that of a beginning or intermediate algebra class. You gain a good foundation for study in future calculus classes.
