Previous Courses (Fresno State)

Mathematical Models with Technology (MATH 232) 

A technology-assisted study of the mathematics used to model phenomena in statistics, natural science, and engineering.

Applied Linear Statistical Models (MATH 106) 

Topics include simple linear regression, parameter inference, interval estimation, prediction, diagnostics and remedial measures, multiple linear regression, model selection and validation, generalized linear models, ridge regression, LASSO.

Mathematical Modeling (MATH 123) 

Application of mathematical techniques to solve selected problems in areas such as ecology, biology, economics, finance, social sciences, life sciences, physical sciences and engineering. The emphasis will be on building mathematical models and on interpreting the solutions of these models in terms of real-life applications.

Mathematical Programming & Software (MATH 120) 

Introduction to usage in mathematics and statistics including computer algebra software, interpreted object-oriented high-level programming language, one programming language related to statistics, database management, optimization, and cloud computing.

Introduction to Biostatistics (MATH 102) 

Introduction to statistical methods used in biological experiments and data analyses, with emphasis on interpretation, presentation, and writing statistical reports. Topics include describing and visualizing data, sampling methods, probability, experimental design, hypothesis testing, regression, ANOVA and nonparametric tests.

Elementary Statistics (MATH 11) 

Illustration of statistical concepts: elementary probability models, sampling, descriptive measures, confidence intervals, testing hypotheses, chi-square, nonparametric methods, regression.

Exploring Statistics (MATH 137) 

Descriptive and inferential statistics with a focus on applications to mathematics education. Use of technology and activities for student discovery and understanding of data organization, collection, analysis and inference.
