**CEN 109- Introduction to Algorithms and Programming:** The objective of this course is to equip the students with the basic understanding of algorithms and programming concepts. Flowcharts are also covered in the course.

**MTH 101- Calculus I:** Functions, Limits, continuity and derivatives. Applications. Extreme values, the Mean Value Theorem and its applications. Graphing. The definite integral. Area and volume as integrals. The indefinite integral. Transcendental functions and their derivatives. L'Hopital's rule. Techniques of integration. Improper integrals. Applications. Parametric curves. Polar coordinates.

**PHY 101- General Physics I:** Vectors, kinematics, Newton's laws of motion, work and energy, conservation of energy, linear momentum and its conservation, rotation of rigid bodies about a fixed axis, angular momentum and its conservation.

**ENG 103- Development of Reading and Writing Skills in English I:** The course reinforces academic reading skills (finding the main idea, skimming, scanning, inferring information, guessing vocabulary from context, etc.) through reading selections on a variety of topics. It also aims at developing critical thinking, which enables students to respond to ideas in a well-organized written format. Other reading related writing skills such as paraphrasing and summarizing are also dealt with.

**MTH 106- Discrete Mathematics:** To equip Computer Science students with the necessary mathematical background in enumeration, relations, logic and elements of graph theory. Sets and propositions: Finite and infinite sets, mathematical induction, propositions. Permutations, combinations and discrete probability. Relations and functions: binary, equivalence relations, partitions, partial ordering, functions. Graphs: weighted graphs, paths and circuits, shortest paths. Eulerian and Hamiltonian paths. Trees. Abstract algebra: groups, cosets, Lagrange's theorem, Boolean algebra.

**MTH 102- Calculus II:** Infinite series, power series, Taylor series. Vectors, lines and planes in space. Functions of several variables: Limit, continuity, partial derivatives, the chain rule, directional derivatives, tangent plane approximation and differentials, extreme values, Lagrange multipliers. Double and triple integrals with applications. The line integral.

**PHY 104- General Physics II:** Equilibrium of rigid bodies, oscillations, gravitation, fluid statics and dynamics, waves in elastic media, introduction to thermodynamics and kinetic theory, sound.

**ENG 104- Development of Reading and Writing Skills in English II:** The course reinforces academic writing skills. In this course students write different types of essays based on the ideas they are exposed to in the reading selections. The emphasis is on the writing process in which students go through many stages from brainstorming and outlining to producing a complete documented piece of writing.
