MATH 1220: A Survey of Calculus II
Credits: 3
A second calculus course for business/biology/and social-science students. Topics include differential equations/infinite series/analysis of functions of several variables/analysis of probability density functions of continuous random variables. The course begins with a review of basic single-variable calculus. Prerequisite: MATH 1210 or equivalent; at most one of MATH 1220 and MATH 1320 may be taken for credit.
MATH 3000: Transition to Higher Mathematics
Credits: 4
Covers basic concepts with an emphasis on writing mathematical proofs. Topics include logic, sets, functions and relations, equivalence relations and partitions, induction, and cardinality. Prerequisite: Math 1320; and students with a grade of B or better in Math 3310, 3354, or any 5000-level Math course are not eligible to enroll in Math 3000.
MATH 3354: Survey of Algebra
Credits: 3
Surveys major topics of modern algebra: groups, rings, and fields. Presents applications to areas such as geometry and number theory; explores rational, real, and complex number systems, and the algebra of polynomials. Students without prior experience constructing rigorous proofs are encouraged to take Math 3000 before or concurrently with Math 3354. Prerequisite: MATH 1320.
MATH 4900: Distinguished Major Thesis
Credits: 3
This course provides a framework for the completion of a Distinguished Major Thesis, a treatise containing an exposition of a chosen mathematical topic. A faculty advisor guides a student through the beginning phases of the process of research and writing. Prerequisite: Acceptance into the Distinguished Major Program.
MATH 4993: Independent Study
Credits: 1–3
Reading and study programs in areas of interest to individual students. For third- and fourth-years interested in topics not covered in regular courses. Students must obtain a faculty advisor to approve and direct the program.
MATH 5653: Number Theory
Credits: 3
The study of the integers and related number systems. Includes polynomial congruences, rings of congruence classes and their groups of units, quadratic reciprocity, diophantine equations, and number-theoretic functions. Additional topics such as the distribution of prime numbers may be included. Prerequisite: MATH 3354.
MATH 5896: Supervised Study in Mathematics
Credits: 3
A rigorous program of supervised study designed to expose the student to a particular area of mathematics. Prerequisite: Instructor permission and graduate standing.
MATH 7010: Seminar on Research in Mathematics
Credits: 1–3
This seminar discusses the issues related to research in Mathematics. There are speakers from the different areas of mathematics represented at the University of Virginia. Credit may not be used towards a Master's degree. Prerequisite: Graduate standing in mathematics.
MATH 8510: Topics in Number Theory
Credits: 3
Studies selected topics in algebraic or analytic number theory
MATH 8999: Non-Topical Research
Credits: 1–12

MATH 9995: Independent Research
Credits: 3–9
Independent Research
MATH 9999: Non-Topical Research
Credits: 1–12
The Mathematics Colloquium is held weekly, the sessions being devoted to research activities of students and faculty members, and to reports by visiting mathematicians on current work of interest. For doctoral dissertation, taken under the supervision of a dissertation director.
