This course introduces the mathematical foundations of computer science. The course topics cover propositional and predicates calculus. Students will learn to apply proofs, probability models, random variables, probability distributions, estimation, and more.

The prerequisites of the course are both EGCP-1010 Digital Logic Design and MATH-1720 Calculus II. The professor of the course is Dr. Adam Hammett. The course is worth 3 credits.

8. MATH-4880 Topics in Mathematics

linear programming

This course covers some topics in linear programming. Students will learn about numerical analysis, stochastic calculus, and non-parametric statistics. Students will also learn about partial differential equations and mathematical modelling.

In order to register for the course, students must have received the permission from the instructor. The course is bworth 1-3 credits. The course is taught by Dr. Adam Hammett.

9. MATH-1990 Beautiful Math Structures and Thinking

This course introduces freshmen and math majors students to interesting mathematical ideas and applications beyond the usual math. Students will learn about propositional logic, function theory, and infinite sets. Students will also learn about the golden ratio, fractals, discrete dynamical systems and chaos, and Euler and Hamilton Circuits.

If you are looking for a more unique math course, this would be a great one to take. The professor of the course is Dr. Darrin Frey. The course is worth 3 credits.

10. MATH-1700 Calculus and Dynamical Systems for the Life Sciences

Calculus Limit

This course is an introduction to calculus and dynamical systems and their application to life science. The course covers discrete and continuous dynamical systems, limits, and derivatives. Students will learn specifically about differential equations, and definite and indefinite integrals.

The professor of the course is Dr. Darrin Frey. The course is worth 4 credits. In order to register for the course, students must have completed GMTH-1030 Precalculus or equivalent, and received permission from the instructor.

Cedarville University offers a wide variety of math courses that help students build skill sets. The courses start off as basic as Introduction to Mathematics. The courses can also get more difficult and tailored to certain majors such as Math 1700 Calculus and Dynamical Systems for Life Sciences.
