## Curriculum

Dr. John E. Hammett III, *Chairperson*

The Department of Mathematics offers three majors and two minors in Mathematics and Statistics. Students must maintain an average GPA of at least 2.0 in all mathematics courses counted towards the B.S. degree or an average GPA of at least 2.5 in all other mathematics courses counted towards the B.A. degree in order to graduate with a mathematics major.

#### Special Notes on Core Curriculum Requirements

^{1} | The Core Curriculum Natural Science Requirement for the B.S. in Mathematics degree is ordinarily PC-185 General Physics I, and CS-180 Introduction to Programming. These Mathematics majors are encouraged to take PC-186 as well. A more advanced course in computer programming may substitute for CS-180, but a course in computer programming is expected. |

^{2} | Mathematics majors are encouraged to take EC-101 Macroeconomic Principles as part of their Social Sciences Requirement. |

^{3} | Ordinarily a student may not receive credit for more than one of the calculus sequences, nor may a student receive credit for both MA-132 Statistics for the Life Sciences and MA-212 Elementary Statistics. |

^{4} | Satisfactory completion of core mathematics courses with integrated mathematics reviews, such as MA-102 Mathematics for the Liberal Arts and MA-103 Probability and Statistics for the Liberal Arts, may be required based on placement test results |

^{5} | Students intending or expected to take calculus courses may first be required to take MA-100 Fundamentals of College Algebra and/or MA-101 Precalculus, unless exempted by placement test results |

^{6} | Students who receive advanced placement beyond the introductory calculus sequences may use MA-273 Multivariable Calculus I and MA-274 Multivariable Calculus II to satisfy the Mathematics Core Requirement. |

#### Special Note on Major Requirements

^{1} | The Chairperson of the Mathematics Department may reduce the 9 credit requirement in the Mathematics electives to 3 credits for the B.S. degree if the student has, in consultation with a departmental advisor, combined this Mathematics major with a specified program of courses in a related field. Such programs include, but are not limited to, major or minor programs in another department and the certification program in secondary education. |
