Title 
Add+VantageMR® I: Math Recovery Strategies for the Classroom 
Prerequisite 
An undergraduate degree in Elementary or Early Childhood Education 
Course Outline 
Course Outline 
Description 
Add+VantageMR® (AVMR): Math Recovery® Strategies for Elementary Classrooms 1 includes dynamic, diagnostic, individual assessments in number words and numerals, structuring numbers, and addition and subtraction strategies. The assessment, data collecting, and teaching tools accelerate the educator's ability to recognize the students' current levels of numeracy understanding to make datadriven instructional decisions. AVMR is beneficial for anyone working or supervising others in mathematics. It is most appropriate for prekindergarten through elementary educators.

Title 
Applied Variation, Proportionality, and Related Topics 
Prerequisite 
Be enrolled in a Masters program or have a prior Masters degree and have at least 15 credits of undergraduate mathematics with a course grades of C or better. 
Course Outline 
Course Outline 
Description 
This course is a comprehensive exploration of variation and proportion and its applications to the world around us. Students will begin by establishing strong skills in solving problems involving proportions. They will then develop the ability to view the worlds of science and engineering through the lens of proportions and variations and establish connections between different branches of mathematics. Finally, students will use their skills to develop methods to enhance understanding of the mathematical relationships that lead to variation, ratio, and proportion.

Title 
Mathematical Problem Solving 
Prerequisite 
Be enrolled in a Masters program or have a prior Masters degree and have at least 15 credits of undergraduate mathematics with a course grades of C or better. 
Course Outline 
Course Outline 
Description 
This course focuses on mastering effective strategies for solving a wide array of mathematical problems. The course will present a framework for mathematical problem solving that includes training in a variety of problem solving heuristics, learning metacognition and selfmonitoring skills, and developing a sound mathematical epistemology that supports effective problem solving. Class participants will be expected to complete problem sets that allow them to learn and practice effective mathematical problem solving in the context of actually solving problems over time periods ranging from a few days to one (or more) weeks.

Title 
Functions of Complex Variables and Applications 
Course Outline 
Course Outline 
Description 
The field of complex numbers is an extension of the field of real numbers. Complex numbers and the function of complex variables have application in many branches of mathematics, including algebraic geometry, number theory, analytic combinatorics, applied mathematics; as well as in physics, including the branches of hydrodynamics, thermodynamics, and particularly quantum mechanics.
In this course, we will study complex numbers, arithmetic of complex numbers, function of complex variables, limit, continuity, differentiation, integration of functions of complex variables and some important theorems on differentiation and integration, convergence of series, types of series, residues, poles, conformal mappings, and finally their applications.
