2013-2014 Undergraduate Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Mathematics (MATH) - BS Major


Return to: Degrees & Programs

59-60 S.H. (No Minor Required)

The BS Mathematics Program provides students with an extended program in the techniques, applications, and theories of mathematics. Consequently, all BS mathematics majors must complete a significant amount of course work beyond the Departmental Core. These additional courses are designed to expose the student to a diverse range of mathematical topics, provide in-depth rigorous study in a focused area, and supply the experience of an independent project. The BS Mathematics major is designed to prepare students for graduate school in mathematics, but also is suitable to prepare them to enter other technical disciplines. Students must earn a grade of “B” or better in MATH 212 - Calculus I  and MATH 213 - Calculus II  and a grade of “C” or higher in all required departmental courses.

Departmental Core (23 S.H.)


Techniques of Continuous Mathematics – MATH (12 S.H.)


Introduction to Theoretical and Discrete Mathematics – MATH (8 S.H.)


Statistics – STAT (3 S.H.)


Choose one:

Note:


MATH 313  is required for the mathematics major.
‡ With the academic advisor’s approval, a different upper-division MATH or STAT course may be substituted for the mathematics major.

CONTINUOUS MATHEMATICS (6 S.H.)


DISCRETE MATHEMATICS (6 S.H.)


NOTE:


† Students double-majoring with the

  are recommended to take  MATH 337 - Probability .

INDEPENDENT PROJECT – MATH (3 S.H.)


An independent project in mathematics is required for all students earning a Mathematics (MATH) - BS Major  in mathematics. The project will address a topic that is significantly beyond the standard undergraduate curriculum and will result in a product that is disseminated both orally and in written form. Such an experience will require students to complete a total of 3 S.H. of MATH 490 - Independent Problems in Mathematics  (Independent Problems in Mathematics), possibly taken over the course of several semesters, even if the experience includes an REU or an internship in mathematics. Students completing an independent project in another technical discipline may, in close consultation with their academic advisors, choose to substitute an additional MATH elective course (numbered ◆ MATH 347 - Number Theory  or above) for this requirement.

ELECTIVES - MATH (9 S.H.)


Three upper-division electives chosen from courses numbered MATH 337 - Probability  and above or ◆ STAT 320 - Statistical Quality Control  and above. At least 3 semester hours must be chosen from List A and at least 3 semester hours from List B. (See course descriptions for schedule of offerings.)

PROGRAMMING ELECTIVE (3-4 S.H.)


APPLICATIONS OF MATH ELECTIVES (6 S.H.)


Two courses involving the applications of mathematics.

Note:


◎ = Oral Intensive

◆ = Math/Critical Analysis Intensive

△ = Writing Intensive
