(Mathematics and Secondary Education Dual Major)
The Mathematics Major
The mathematics curriculum provides preparation for graduate study and for a variety of careers in industry and government. There is enough flexibility in the program to allow a large choice of electives, and the program, when combined with further study in a second area, can provide an excellent foundation for graduate or professional study in the physical sciences, computer science, engineering, or business.
The major consists of 10 required courses, beginning with a twosemester calculus sequence along with a course in mathematical reasoning. These are followed by a five course mathematics core and two major electives to be chosen from a specified list of alternatives. The capstone course of the program is a problemsolving seminar which is designed to draw upon all courses in the foundation and to develop the student’s abilities in mathematical reasoning. Students are further advised to include courses in discrete mathematics, computer science and the history of mathematics in their studies.
Students wishing to teach mathematics at the secondary level must follow the Dual Major with Secondary Education and Mathematics. Students pursuing a double major in elementary education and mathematics may take either of the mathematics majors described below, but are encouraged to take the Dual Major with Secondary Education.
DEGREE REQUIREMENTS
Majors pursuing a Bachelor of Science in mathematics must satisfy University Core Curriculum requirements and the College speech requirement, COMM 210. In addition, they must complete the following courses and a sufficient number of electives to total 120 credits. Majors are encouraged to apply electives toward a minor or second major.
