MATH 301 Mathematical Structures 3 credits, Fall (offered as needed) Introduces students to concepts and reasoning methods used in higher-level mathematics. This course will allow students to make the transition to abstract mathematical reasoning by exposing them to appropriate procedures for answering mathematical questions, forming conjectures, constructing proofs, and analyzing important mathematical constructs. Topics include set theory, functions, elementary group theory, and elementary real analysis. Prerequisite(s): A grade of "C" or better in MATH 136, MATH 137, and MATH 201 or in MATH 220 |
