MATH-220 - Mathematical Structures and Proofs
|MATH-220||Mathematical Structures and Proofs||3 - credits||$318.06|
This course provides students with a transition from mathematics courses at the first-year level to rigorous, theoretical courses at the upper-division in which mathematical proof is emphasized. The nature and purpose of mathematical proof are examined. Many common techniques of proofs are studied and applied in analyzing a large number of elementary proofs. Students spend a considerable amount of time analyzing sample proofs and constructing their own proofs. No single area of mathematics will be emphasized; examples may be chosen from abstract algebra, number theory, analysis and combinatorics.
Prerequisites: MATH 104 (Calculus II)
Corequisites: At least one second year Mathematic course. MATH 201 (Calculus III), MATH 205 (Calculus III and IV) and MATH 221 (Linear Algebra) are recommended.
Delivery Method: On-Campus
