Catalog description:

Objectives—The mission of the discipline is to advance knowledge of mathematics: by teaching mathematics and its processes, by research in mathematics and mathematical pedagogy, and by dissemination of this knowledge to students and the community we serve.

The mathematics curriculum is designed to help students develop competence in mathematical techniques and methods. It aims to sharpen the students' mathematical intuition and abstract reasoning as well as their reasoning from numerical data. It also encourages and stimulates the type of independent thinking required for research beyond the confines of the textbook. The mathematics program aims to provide students with the basic knowledge and skills to make mathematical contributions to modern society, whether in the form of pure mathematics or of mathematics applied in other disciplines. The program seeks to enable students to see and communicate how the development of mathematics has been part of the development of several civilizations and is intimately interwoven with the cultural and scientific development of these societies. The curriculum prepares students to enter graduate school, pursue careers in applied mathematics, or teach mathematics.

Historically, the study of mathematics has been central to a liberal arts education.  The mathematics curriculum serves as an integral part of students' active pursuit of a liberal arts education.  The mathematics program serves students who major or minor in mathematics, seek secondary mathematics teaching licensure, major or minor in programs that require a mathematical background, or wish to fulfill components of a general education.

Other requirements:

Students are encouraged to focus their choices to specific electives if they are intending to pursue (1) teaching licensure in mathematics; (2) graduate work in pure mathematics; or (3) graduate work in applied mathematics.

The GPA in these courses must be at least 2.00. Courses may not be taken S-N unless offered S-N only.  Up to 5 credits of coursework with a grade of D or D+ may be used to meet the major requirements if offset by an equivalent number of credits of B- or above in courses at or above the 2XXX level. Exceptions to requirements may be granted on an individual basis, after consulting with the math faculty.

 

Majors should begin with Math 1011--Pre-Calculus or Math 1101--Calculus I.  Students with questions about placement are encouraged to discuss them with members of the mathematics faculty.

 

Recommended electives for students planning to pursue graduate work in pure mathematics are:

Math 4201--Complex Analysis

Math 4211--Real Analysis

Math 4221--Topology

Math 4231--Abstract Algebra II

Math 4241--Number Theory

Math 4252--Differential Geometry

Math 4253--Combinatorics

 

Recommended electives for students planning to work or pursue graduate work in applied mathematics or related fields are:

Math 2401--Differential Equations

Math 3401--Operations Research

Math 3411--Discrete and Combinatorial Mathematics
