Mathematics

Students develop expertise in applied mathematics, and supplement math courses with courses in other fields. Biology, chemistry, computer science, and engineering are integrated with mathematic theory. Majors go on to attend graduate schools like MIT, Notre Dame, and Carnegie Mellon, and have successful careers in business, science, government, engineering and education. Carroll teams have placed as "Outstanding" (the top 1%) three times in the international Interdisciplinary Contest in Modeling in the past nine years.

MA 315 - Probability and Statistics

3.00 Cr
This course provides a calculus-based introduction to probability and statistics. After a brief introduction to probability, this course will focus on statistics with a strong emphasis on experimental design. Topics to be covered include the normal, binomial, and Poisson distributions, hypothesis tests, confidence intervals, ANOVA, design of experiments, and least squares regression. Particular attention will be given to applications in the sciences and engineering. This course includes an introduction to the R statistics language.

MA 141 - Intro to Mathematical Modeling

4.00 Cr
This course is an introduction to sequences, difference equations, differential calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra. This is the first course in a two semester, eight credit, sequence in differential equations and linear algebra. Specific topics include analytical and numerical solutions to difference equations and first-order and second-order linear differential equations, separation of variables, the method of undetermined coefficients, phase line analysis, stability of equilibrium, systems of equations, matrix equations, determinants, matrix inverses, Gaussian elimination, and eigenvalues and eigenvectors. There is a heavy emphasis on mathematical modeling and applications. We use technology extensively, and we also focus on learning how to explain mathematics orally and in writing. Prerequisite: High school mathematics through pre-calculus. A basic understanding of differential calculus is strongly recommended.

MA 314 - Prob & Stats for Engineers

2.00 Cr
This course is a calculus-based introduction to the topics in probability and statistics that are necessary in engineering. Topics to be covered include the normal, binomial, and Poisson distributions, hypothesis tests, and confidence intervals. Particular attention will be given to applications in the sciences and engineering. This course includes an introduction to the R statistics language. Note: this course is identical to the first 10 weeks of MA 315. Students may not receive credit for both MA 314 and MA 315.

MA 425 - Internship

1.00 Cr
Internship Experiences recognize that learning can take place outside the classroom. Carroll College allows its students to participate in opportunities that relate to their area of study. This opportunity must relate directly a student's program of study in order to qualify for an internship. Close cooperation among Carroll and the participating organizations ensures an experience that contributes significantly to the student's overall growth and professional development. Juniors and seniors in any major area may participate with the approval of faculty internship advisor and/or department chair, Career Services, and a site supervisor. Students will receive academic credit and may or may not receive monetary compensation for an internship. A student may apply a maximum of 12 semester hours to degree requirements; academic departments will determine the number of credits that may count toward the major (most majors accept 6 hours total). Enrollment in the course must be during the same semester in which the experience takes place. Interested students should contact their academic advisor and Career Services prior to the start of an experience.
