MATH 1030Q: Elementary Discrete Mathematics

Course Description:
Three credits. Recommended preparation: Algebra II or the equivalent. UConn ECE Math 1030Q cannot be taken concurrent with or after UConn ECE Math 1125Q, 1126Q, 1131Q or 1132Q. Problem solving strategies, solutions of simultaneous linear equations, sequences, counting and probability, graph theory, deductive reasoning, the axiomatic method and finite geometries, number systems.

Semester offered: Fall or Spring

Student Course Eligibility Guidelines for MATH 1030Q:

Successful completion of one year of pre-calculus is recommended.


MATH 1131Q: Calculus I

Course Description:
Four credits. Students who matriculate to UConn cannot receive credit for MATH 1131Q and 1151Q. Limits, continuity, differentiation of algebraic and transcendental functions, antidifferentiation, definite integrals, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, u-substitution, with applications to the physical and engineering sciences.

Semester offered: Fall Only


MATH 1132Q: Calculus II

Course Description:
Four credits. Prerequisite: MATH 1131Q in the immediately preceding semester. A continuation of MATH1131Q with techniques of integration, applications of integration, infinite sequences and series, power and Taylor series, polar coordinates and parametric equations, with applications to the physical sciences and engineering.

Semester offered: Spring Only


Student Eligibility Guidelines for MATH 1131Q & 1132Q:

Successful completion of one year of pre-calculus is required. A student must pass MATH 1131Q with a grade of a "C" or higher to continue on to MATH 1132Q. To receive credit for the MATH1131Q – MATH1132Q sequence a student must pass MATH1131Q in the fall with a C or higher and continue to MATH1132Q in the following spring. The sequence must be completed in one academic year.

Instructor Certification Requirements: 

The minimum degree requirement for instructors wishing to teach UConn ECE mathematics courses is typically a Master's degree in Mathematics. In exceptional cases, a strong Bachelor's degree with evidence that the candidate is enrolled in a program to earn a Master's degree may be considered. A candidate with a Master's in Education may also be considered if coupled with a strong Bachelor's degree in Mathematics. Interviews will be conducted before certification is granted. The Math Department will not certify candidates that have earned a degree completely through online coursework.  

**The transcript must include at least one course on the theory of calculus (i. e., Real Analysis or Theoretical Advanced Calculus) with a grade of B or better.**
