Mathematics
The Mathematics concentration is designed to increase the mathematical understanding of students by acquainting them with a broad range of math courses that emphasize concepts, procedures, and problem solving, including algebra and analysis.
Concentration Requirements:
A concentration designated as Mathematics may be established in one of two ways:
Option 1:
Required Courses:
Calculus 1  3cr 
Calculus 2  3cr 
Calculus 3  3cr 
Linear Algebra  3cr 
Abstract/Modern Algebra  3cr 
Real Analysis, Complex Analysis or Variables, or Advanced Calculus 
3cr 
Upper level electives  6cr 
Must include at least two upper level sequential courses in the same area, such as Real Analysis and Complex Analysis; Geometry, Topology or Graph Theory; CalculusBased Probability and Statistics. 

Math Electives  9cr 
Capstone  3cr 
Option 2:
The GRE Subject Test in Mathematics, evaluated at 24 credits (15 lower, 9 upper), plus 12 credits beyond the freshman level to include at least 3 upper level credits which may be selected from such areas as analysis, CalculusBased Probability and Statistics, Abstract or Modern Algebra, Topology, and Set Theory, plus capstone.
Recommended:
History of Mathematics
Knowledge of computer spreadsheet packages, especially Excel
Prerequisites or Corequisites:
Computer language
Laboratorybased science
Student Learning Outcomes
Students who graduate with a concentration in Mathematics will be able to:
 demonstrate knowledge of subject matter across the full range of mathematics curriculum;
 demonstrate depth of knowledge in one specific area of mathematics by completing at least two sequential upper level courses;
 develop competence in writing formal mathematical proofs;
 develop an awareness of the historical evolution of mathematics and the role mathematics plays in society;
 demonstrate basic skill or ability in at least one computer programming language;
 demonstrate awareness of math concepts in a labbased science.
Students planning to go on to graduate school in mathematics should consult catalogs of colleges which they plan to attend. Because of the diversity in programs, prerequisites vary. For instance, undergraduate courses in calculusbased statistics and geometry are required for graduate courses in these areas.
