Official Course Description:
General Mathematics and Computational Science I and II are the introductory first year courses for students in the two majors. In addition, these courses address anyone with an interest in mathematics and mathematical modeling. Each semester includes a selection of "pure"
and "applied" topics which provide a solid foundation for further study, convey the pleasure of doing mathematics, and relate mathematical concepts to real-world applications.
Topics covered in the first semester are:
- Fundamental concepts: sets, relations, functions, equivalence classes.
- Numbers: Peano axioms, proof by induction, rational numbers, real numbers; fundamental theorem of arithmetic, non-finiteness of the set of primes.
- Discrete Mathematics: combinatorics, matching problems, graph theory with applications in discrete optimization.
- Difference equations: solution of difference equations, modeling applications (e.g. population dynamics).
