Current Graduate Offerings

Fall 2016

You are welcome to contact the instructor for more information about any course below. E-mail addresses can be obtained from the Math Department Directory Page.

Roughly speaking, 500-level courses are intended as first-year M.S. courses, 600-level are more advanced M.S. level courses, and 700-level courses are doctoral courses. With the exception of Math 452, most 400-level courses do not count toward program requirements.

Note: Except as noted, all courses below the 600-level that are listed below are now planned on being offered annually.

Links with further information will be added as provided by the instructor. Comments on this page represent brief remarks by the Graduate Director as to how each course fits into the graduate program. Catalog descriptions of the courses are available through the University’s website or at Available Math Courses.

MATH 590. Teaching Practicum.

Credit Hours: 
variable hours
Semester Offered: 
Comments From Graduate Director: 
All GTA’s enroll for one credit hour of Math 590 each semester. This course will reflect the supervised duties assigned to the GTA each semester, which will change from semester to semester. Most GTA’s will take the Teaching Seminar in the Spring of their first year, followed by a second semester in the Fall of their second year. The Teaching Seminar is included in your Math 590 enrollment.

MATH 593G. SPTP: Applied Dynamics/Chaos.

Credit Hours: 
3
Syllabus: 
Semester Offered: 
Comments From Graduate Director: 
This is a special topics class in dynamical systems, an important and evolving area within applied mathematics. The pre-requisite is an undergraduate course in differential equations. Topics include stability, bifurcations, catastrophe theory, chaos, the butterfly effect, strange attractors, fractals. There are diverse applications to biology, physics, chemistry and engineering. The course is cross-listed with Math 493H.

MATH 696. Graduate Seminar.

Credit Hours: 
1
Semester Offered: 
Comments From Graduate Director: 
Ph.D. students are required to enroll for one credit of graduate seminar each semester they are in residence. Expectations of this course are contained in the linked document. In the spring, we offer Math 694 Seminar: Professional Tools, which needs to be taken once by each graduate student. During the semester Math 694 is taken, Ph.D. students do not need to enroll in Math 696.

Math 733 RUME 3: Advanced Learning Theories

Credit Hours: 
3
Semester Offered: 
Comments From Graduate Director: 
This is one of four graduate courses covering research in undergraduate mathematics education that form the basis of a specialization area in our Ph.D. program.

MATH 747. Advanced Topics in Modern Algebra

Credit Hours: 
3
Course coordinator: 
Professor Wojciechowski
Semester Offered: 
Comments From Graduate Director: 
Provides, in essence, a “third semester” of modern algebra after Math 541-641. This course can be used with Math 641 to make a minor area in algebra for Ph.D. students. It is offered every one or two years and sometimes continues in the spring. The course can be repeated for credit, as the topics will change from year to year. Please contact the instructor for further information on the topics to be covered this year.
