Currently Teaching
NMTH275
Advanced Mathematics
3 Credits
Topics from precalculus mathematics are studied with an emphasis on functions and graphs. Topics include the algebra of functions and the study of inverse functions. Rational, exponential, logarithmic and piecewisedefined functions are among those studied. Students, who earn credit for NMTH275, cannot take NMTH260 or NMTH272.
MATH790
Research & Thesis
0  9 Credits
Masterslevel research by the candidate on an appropriate topic as arranged between the candidate and the research advisor.
NMTH250
Elementary Statistics
3 Credits
An introductory statistics course utilizing a lecture/lab format in which statistics concepts, probability, probability distributions, and bivariate data are studied. Statistical concepts that are essential for an understanding of social and political issues of contemporary life will be emphasized. Statistical software and applications will be introduced.
