Covers the fundamental concepts necessary for success in engineering courses and Applied Mathemtics courses.
Advanced techniques of integration are introduced, and integration is used in physics applications like fluid force, work, and center of mass. Improper integrals and approximate integration using Simpson's Rule are also studied. Infinite series including Taylor series are studied and numerical methods involving Taylor polynomials are studied. Parametric equations and polar coordinates are introduced and applied. Complex numbers are introduced.
Introduces basic concepts of probability such as random variables, single and joint probability distributions, and the central limit theorem. The course then emphasizes applied statistics, including descriptive statistics, statistical inference, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, correlation, linear regression, and ANOVA. Students cannot receive credit for both this course and APMA 3120. Prerequisite: APMA 2120 or equivalent.
For master's students.
For doctoral students.
