MATU 203 Introduction to Statistics
Not recommended for the student who has taken a statistics course in another department or for mathematics majors. Students study probability, analysis of data, parametric and non-parametric statistics, examples from the social sciences and the natural sciences. 3 credits.
MATU 206 Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers
This course focuses on preparing future elementary school teachers for effective mathematics instruction. Topics include problem-solving strategies, number theory, fractions, decimals, proportions and their applications to geometry, basic geometry, and probability. Conceptual understanding is emphasized. In presenting the material, several instructional techniques will be modeled. These techniques may be incorporated when preparing your own lesson plans. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: MATU 210. Students study vector spaces, linear transformations, matrices, determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors. 3 credits.
MATU 250, 251 Discrete Mathematics I, II
Prerequisite: mathematics placement examination equivalent to placement in pre-calculus. This course provides the student with an introduction to the fundamental Mathematics of discrete phenomena and computation. This is a key course in the curriculum as it provides the theoretical background needed for many upper-division courses including Data Structures (combinatorics, formal languages), Logic Design (Boolean algebras, number representation) and Integrated Circuit Design (automata theory, finite state minimization, graph layout). 3/3 credits.
MATU 329 Experimental Topics in Mathematics
An examination of selected topics in Mathematics relevant to evolving areas in the field. Syllabi must be approved by the Dean and announced to the Curriculum and Academic Committee prior to being offered. May be repeated for credit provided that the course content is different each time. 3 credits.
MATU 499 Independent Study
Prerequisites: Instructor's approval and approval of petition. Directed reading and/or research designed to meet specific needs of superior upper division students. 1-3 credits.
