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. 
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. 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. The
mathematics curriculum is designed to help students develop competence in
mathematical techniques and methods; to sharpen students' mathematical
intuition and abstract reasoning as well as their reasoning from numerical
data; to encourage and stimulate the type of independent thinking required
for research beyond the confines of the textbook; and to provide students
with the basic knowledge and skills to make mathematical contributions to
modern society. 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

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 SN
unless offered SN 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 1011PreCalculus or Math 1101Calculus 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
4201Complex Analysis Math
4211Real Analysis Math
4221Topology Math
4231Abstract Algebra II Math
4241Number Theory Math 4252Differential
