2014 Fall – MAT 2071 Proofs and Logic – Reitz

2014 Fall – MAT 2071 Proofs and Logic – Reitz

This course is designed to prepare students for an advanced mathematics curriculum by providing a transition from Calculus to abstract mathematics. The course focuses on the processes of mathematical reasoning, argument, and discovery. Topics include propositional and first order logic, learning proofs through puzzles and games, axiomatic approach to group theory, number theory, and set theory, abstract properties of relations and functions, elementary graph theory, sets of different cardinalities, and the construction and properties of real numbers.

MEDU1010 Foundations of Math Ed, FA2016

MEDU1010 Foundations of Math Ed, FA2016

This course examines the historical, philosophical, and sociological foundations underlying the development of American educational institutions. The role of the schools, the aims of education, diverse learners, the mathematics curriculum in New York State, legal principles that affect education, and the role of state, local, and federal agencies will be emphasized.

MAT2572 Probability w/ Statistics, FA2016

MAT2572 Probability w/ Statistics, FA2016

Topics for the course include sample spaces and probabilities, discrete distributions (Binomial, Negative Binomial, Geometric, Hypergeometric, Poisson, and Gamma), continuous distributions (Uniform, Normal, Chi-squared), expectation and variance, hypothesis testing, interval estimation and confidence intervals. There will be extensive use of MS Excel and R, a statistical software program. At the end of the course, students should be able make meaningful connections between statistics and other areas of study, including and social sciences.

MAT 3021 Number Theory, Fall 2016

MAT 3021 Number Theory, Fall 2016

This course is an introduction to number theory. Topics include divisibility (division algorithm, GCD, etc), primes, congruence, the fundamental theorem of arithmetic, quadratic reciprocity, number theoretic functions and Fermat’s little theorem. Some applications will be done, which can be computer based, to encourage students to propose and test conjectures.
