Fall Semester 2020
|Introduction to Calculus I|
|Gupta, Sarita||T TH||GMH, 207||11:30AM-12:50PM|
A review of analytic geometry and functions; derivatives of algebraic functions; mean value theorem; fundamental theorem of calculus; applications of differentiation, including extreme values and related rates; integration; differentials. Three hours of lecture and one tutorial per week. Prerequisite: grade 12 mathematics or equivalent.
|Introduction to Logic|
|Stapleford, Scott||T TH||GMH, 304||10:00AM-11:20AM|
A lecture course in which students learn how to identify and evaluate arguments drawn from a wide variety of sources. It will develop informal methods such as the identification of argument structure and informal fallacies. It will also develop formal methods that involve taking arguments in English, symbolizing them in a formal language, and evaluating strengths and weaknesses of the argument forms. Also covered are basic probability theory, inductive logic, and statistical reasoning.
Winter Semester 2021
|Introduction to Calculus II|
|Gupta, Sarita||T TH||TBA, TBA||11:30AM-12:50PM|
Conic sections; transcendental functions and their derivatives; techniques of integration; areas and volumes; Taylor's theorem. Prerequisite: a grade of C or higher in MATH 1013.
|Intro. to Logic II|
|Stapleford, Scott||T TH||TBA, TBA||10:00AM-11:20AM|
This is a course in first-order symbolic logic in its second main branch (predicate logic). The aim is to acquaint students with the formal language of modern deductive logic and to develop the basic techniques of good deductive reasoning. The course will be of interest to philosophy majors in particular (especially those who are planning to do graduate work in philosophy), but will benefit anyone who wants to acquire skills in abstract thinking. A good grounding in sentential logic is presupposed.
