Mathematics Major: Bach Sci    
   Required Courses    
      MTH 2350   Probability & Statistics 4 cr.  Topics include data collection and graphic presentation; measures of central tendency; measures of dispersion; normal distribution; regression and correlation; sampling methods; design of experiments; probability and simulation; sampling distributions; statistical inference including confidence intervals and hypothesis testing for one-sample and two-sample problems. Prerequisite: two years of high school algebra within the last three years, or placement test, or MTH 1040. 
      MTH 2510   Calculus with Analytic Geometry I 5 cr.  Topics include a study of limits, continuity, derivatives of algebraic and transcendental functions, applications of derivatives, integrals, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Prerequisite: MTH 1210 or departmental approval. Computer Science majors must complete this course with a grade of C (2.0) or better within the first 20 semester hours of their major. 
      MTH 2520   Calculus with Analytic Geometry II 4 cr.  Topics include a study of methods of integration, applications of integrals, sequences, series and power series, parametric curves, and polar coordinates. Prerequisite: MTH 2510. Computer Science majors must complete this course with a grade of C (2.0) or better within the first 20 semester hours of their major. 
      MTH 3300   Modern Algebra 3 cr.  Topics include groups, subgroups, isomorphism, cosets and Lagrange's Theorem, group homomorphisms, rings, and integral domains. Prerequisite: MTH 2520 or permission of instructor. 
      MTH 3410   Linear Algebra 3 cr.  Use of multiple representations of linearity, solution of systems of linear equations, organizing data using matrices, performing matrix operations, using determinants, study of algebraic and geometric structures of vector spaces, recognizing subspaces and spanning sets, finding eigenvectors and Eigen values, using technology to explore ideas, developing logical proofs, and applying concepts to real-life situations. Prerequisite: MTH 2520 
      MTH 3510   Calculus with Analytic Geometry III 4 cr.  A study of vectors, vector-valued functions, differential calculus of functions of several variables and applications, multiple integrals, vector fields, and line and surface integrals. Prerequisite: MTH 2520. 
      MTH 4510   Introduction to Real Analysis 3 cr.  Logic, set theory, methods of mathematical proof, relations and functions, cardinality, and study of the properties of the real number system. Emphasis is on rigorous proofs of mathematical statements. Prerequisite: MTH 2520 or permission of instructor. 
      MTH 4650   Foundations of College Geometry 3 cr.  To broaden the understanding of Euclidean geometry; study finite geometries, geometric transformations and non-Euclidean geometries; write geometric proofs; apply geometric concepts to real world situations; and explore geometric concepts and relationships using interactive software. Prerequisite: MTH 2520. 
      MTH 4950   Senior Seminar 2 cr.  Designed to help students develop oral and written communication within the context of the mathematics major. An essential component of the course is the preparation and presentation of research paper. Taken by mathematics students with senior status as a requirement for graduation; to be taken in the final six hours of the program. 
   Support Course Choice     (3 cr. to be chosen)    
      CSC 2080   Computer Science I 3 cr.  An introductory course in the field of computer science. Topics include fundamentals of computation and algorithmic problem solving, data types, procedures, control structures, arrays, and applications. Recommended as the first computer science course taken by students in mathematics and science, as well as by those wishing to concentrate in computer science. 
      CSC 2250   Javascript Programming 3 cr.  Designing and writing programs using the JavaScript language. Emphasis is placed on devising modular programs that are easy to read and modify. Topics include structured programming concepts, variables, control structures, functions, arrays, and JavaScript operators, objects, and event handlers. The JavaScript programs are used to create dynamic HTML web pages.
