The University of Windsor is a public comprehensive and research university in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. One of the most notable alumni of the school is Richard A. Peddie is a Canadian businessman. He is the former president and CEO of Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment. In order to have majored in business students must have plenty of math courses taken, here are 10 math courses you need to check out.

1.MATH-1020. Mathematical Foundations

 math logic with p and q


This course will cover mathematical logic. Students will learn about proof methods and the development of proof techniques. Students will also learn about mathematical induction, sets, equivalence relations, partial ordering relations, and functions.

The prerequisite of the course before you can sign up to register is students must have at least one of COMP-1000, MATH-1250, MATH-1260, or MATH-1270.) (2 lecture hours, 2 tutorial hours per week). The professor of the course is Mohammad Hassanzadeh. This is a great course for those with not much math experience prior to or is looking for an easy transition from high school math.

2. MATH-2790. Differential Equations

 example of an ordinary diff equation


This course will cover first-order ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Students will learn about higher-order ODEs with constant coefficients, Cauchy-Euler equations,and systems of linear ODEs. Students will also learn about Laplace transforms, and applications to science and engineering.

The prerequisites of the course before being able to sign up are successful completion of MATH-1730, and one of MATH-1250, MATH-1260 or MATH-1270.) (3 lecture hours, 1 tutorial hour per week.) The professor of the course is Dillian Yang. This is a course you will need if you are pursuing math in the long run or majored in degrees such as engineering and computer science.

3. MATH-2250. Linear Algebra II

Vector space with w and v variables

This course is a rigorous and proof-based study of linear systems. Students will learn about vector spaces, linear transformations, projections, and pseudo-inverses. Students will also learn about determinants, inner product spaces and applications.

The prerequisites of the course are successful completion of MATH-1020 and one of MATH-1250, MATH-1260 or MATH-1270.) (3 lecture hours, 1 tutorial hour per week.) The professor of the course is Zhiguo Hu. This a great course to take if you havn't taken too math courses previously.

4. MATH-1260. Vectors and Linear Algebra

Matrix algebra with n and a

This course is for students without Ontario Grade 12 Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U). The course MATH-1250 is for students with MCV4U. This course covers vectors, three-dimensional geometry, linear systems, matrix algebra, determinants, n- dimensional vectors, dot product and much more.

The prerequisite of the course is completion of Ontario Grade 12 Advanced Functions (MHF4U).) The course encompasses 4 lecture hours and 2 tutorial hours per week. The professor of the course is Alia Sajjad.

5. MATH-1270. Linear Algebra (Engineering)

 dot product and how its visualized

This course will cover linear systems, and linear transformations. Students will learn about matrix algebra, determinants, vectors in Rn, dot product, orthogonalization, and diagonalization. Students will also learn about eigenvectors and eigenvalues, in the context of applications in Science and Engineering.

The prerequisite of the course are successful completion of MATH-1280 or both Ontario Grade 12 Advanced Functions (MHF4U) and Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U)). The course is a commitment of 3 lectures hours and 1 tutorial hour per week. The professor of the course is Alia Sajjad.

6. MATH-1250. Linear Algebra I

 example of an n dimentional vector

This course will cover linear systems, and matrix algebra. Students will learn about determinants, n-dimensional vectors, and dot product. Students will also learn about cross product, orthogonalization, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, diagonalization and vector spaces.

The prerequisites of the course is having taken both Ontario Grade 12 Advanced Functions (MHF4U) and Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U) or MATH-1280.) The course is a commitment of 3 lecture hours as well as 2 tutorial hours per week. The professor of the course Alia Sajjad.

9. MATH-1980. Mathematics for Business

graphical linear programming with line

This course is an introduction to concepts and techniques of mathematics useful in business situations. Students will learn topics such as mathematical modeling of qualitative scenarios, linear simultaneous equations, and inequalities. Students will also learn about exponential and logarithmic functions, graphical linear programming, and probability.

This course is intended for students who specifically are in the program of Business Administration. This may not be taken for credit in any program within the Faculty of Science or the Faculty of Engineering. The prerequisite of the course is completion of any grade 12 “U” math course, or MATH-1780.) The professor of the course is Alia Sajjad.

8. MATH-1730. Integral Calculus

 example of a power series


This course will cover antiderivatives. Students will learn about the definite integral and the fundamental theorem of calculus. Students will also learn about techniques of integration, applications, improper integrals, sequences and series, convergence tests, power series, Taylor and Maclaurin series, and polar and parametric coordinates.

The prerequisite of the course is completion of MATH-1760 or MATH-1720.) The course is taught by professor Jing Wang. The course is 3 lecture hours as well as 1 tutorial hour per week.

9. MATH-1760. Functions and Differential Calculus

math students working together

This course will cover a review of functions, trigonometric functions and identities. Students will learn about transcendental functions, inverse trigonometric functions, introduction to limits, continuity, derivatives and applications. Students will also learn about mean value theorem, indeterminate forms and l’Hôpital’s rule, antiderivatives and an introduction to definite integrals.

This course is for students who have taken Ontario Grade 12 Advanced Functions (MHF4U), but have not taken Ontario Grade 12 Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U). Students who have credit for MCV4U should take MATH-1720. The course is equivalent to MATH-1720.This course is 4 lecture hours and 2 tutorial hours per week. The professor of the course is Jing Wang.

10. MATH-2251. Linear Algebra III
