Courses

The Mathematics Department offers a rich variety of courses in analysis, algebra, combinatorics, topology, geometry, probability, statistics, and logic. Members of the department are available to discuss with students the appropriate course for their levels of ability and interest. Students are encouraged to avail themselves of this advice.

Next fall, award-winning professor and author William Dunham will be visiting Cornell and teaching our undergraduate history of math course, MATH 4030. Prof. Dunham is the author of the acclaimed books The Mathematical Universe, Journey through Genius, Euler: The Master of Us All, and The Calculus Gallery. Prof. Dunham has taught similar courses recently at Harvard, Princeton, and Penn, to great acclaim. This course is going to be an exceptional one-time treat for anyone curious about the history of mathematics. The prerequisites are two math courses at the 3000 level, or permission of the instructor.
