Courses

AUMAT 110 - Elementary Calculus I

Limits; differentiation and integration of algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions; applications. Prerequisite: Mathematics 30-1. Notes: Credit may be obtained for only one of AUMAT 110 and 116. Students with credit in Mathematics 31 who score 80% or more on the Calculus Placement Test should take AUMAT 116 instead of AUMAT 110. Students with unsatisfactory performance through the first four weeks of the course are advised to withdraw and register in the next offering of AUMAT 101.

Fall Term 2020
AUMAT 120 - Linear Algebra I

Vector and matrix algebra, determinants, linear systems of equations, vector spaces, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, applications. Prerequisite: Mathematics 30-1.

Winter Term 2021
AUMAT 220 - Linear Algebra II

Vector spaces, bases, linear transformations, change of bases, eigenvectors, characteristic polynomials, diagonalization, inner products and Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization, orthogonal and unitary operators. Prerequisites: AUMAT 120 and one of 110 or 116.

Winter Term 2021
