Courses

MTG 3203   Elementary Geometry

3 sh (may not be repeated for credit)
Prerequisite: MAC 1105

A basic course that presents a variety of geometry topics using hands-on strategies. Students will employ paper-pencil, straight edge and compass, and the computer to solve problems related to polygons, lines, angles, circles, area, volume, similarity, and the Pythagorean theorem. Recommended for elementary / middle level Education majors. Math majors may not use this course to fulfill major requirements.

MTG 3905   Directed Study

1-12 sh (may be repeated indefinitely for credit)

MTG 4905   Directed Study

1-12 sh (may be repeated indefinitely for credit)

MTG 6348   Point set and algebraic topology

3 sh (may not be repeated for credit)

An introduction to the fundamental concepts of point set and algebraic topology. Topics covered include separation axioms, compactness, connectivity, completeness, simplicial topology, and homotopy. Applications to modern analysis and to the solution to classical geometrical problems. Must complete Abstract Algebra or have permission of instructor.
