Bio

Ezra Halleck teaches courses traditionally thought of as first and second year courses such as statistics, linear algebra and differential equations. He has a particular interest in getting students to experience the power of mathematics both as a subject in its own right and as a tool for other disciplines. He did his graduate work under the tutelage of Adriano Garsia at University of California, San Diego.

My Courses

MAT1375 PreCalculus, SP2019

MAT1375 PreCalculus, SP2019

This course is designed to prepare students for the study of Calculus. Topics include an in-depth study of functions such as polynomial functions, inverse functions, radical functions, rational functions, trigonometric functions, exponential and logarithmic functions; solving inequalities; elements of vectors and complex numbers; solving trigonometric equations and identities involving sum, double and half-angle formulas; Binomial Theorem; and progressions. A graphing calculator is required.

MAT2440 Discrete Struc I, SP2019

MAT2440 Discrete Struc I, SP2019

This course introduces the foundations of discrete mathematics as they apply to computer science, focusing on providing a solid theoretical foundation for further work. Topics include functions, relations, sets, simple proof techniques, Boolean algebra, propositional logic, elementary number theory, writing, analyzing and testing algorithms.

MAT1575 Calculus II, FA2018

MAT1575 Calculus II, FA2018

A continuation of MAT 1475. Topics include Taylor polynomials, Mean Value Theorem, Taylor and Maclaurin series, tests of convergence, techniques of integration, improper integrals, areas, volumes and arc length. Prerequisite: MAT 1475

MAT1372 Statistics with Probability, FA2018

MAT1372 Statistics with Probability, FA2018

A 3 credit but 4 hour introductory course. Topics include sample space, expectation and variance, binomial, Poisson, normal, student and chi-square distributions, confidence interval, hypothesis testing, correlation and regression. Students do a group project comparing 2 numeric variables and present at the end of the semester. The extra classroom hour is designed to facilitate a hands-on feel to the course including a heavy use of R supplemented by some use of MS Excel.

MAT1275/D506 College Algebra and Trigonometry Fall 2016

MAT1275/D506 College Algebra and Trigonometry Fall 2016

An intermediate and advanced algebra course. Topics include quadratic equations, systems of linear equations, exponential and logarithmic functions; topics from trigonometry including identities, equations and solutions of triangles.
