Description

A deeper understanding and experience in the formulation of well-reasoned mathematics is developed in this course. Topics in linear algebra and introductory analysis provide specific knowledge and skills for later studies in mathematics. The focus of the course is on the concepts of linearity and continuity which are fundamental for higher mathematics and its applications.
