Mathematics is a basic tool for understanding modern society as well as a crucial requirement for many careers in science, engineering, business, and the professions. Research in this living, dynamic subject is at the highest level in history.

An undergraduate degree in mathematics prepares students for a variety of careers in government and business, secondary teaching, graduate study, and with proper planning, a variety of professional programs. Graduate study is advisable for some business and governmental positions and college and university teaching and research. The department also offers a minor.

The regular math sequence (MATH:1850 Calculus I, MATH:1860 Calculus II, MATH:2700 Introduction to Linear Algebra, MATH:2850 Calculus III, and MATH:3600 Introduction to Ordinary Differential Equations) and the engineering math sequence (MATH:1550 Engineering Mathematics I: Single Variable Calculus, MATH:1560 Engineering Mathematics II: Multivariable Calculus, MATH:2550 Engineering Mathematics III: Matrix Algebra, MATH:2560 Engineering Mathematics IV: Differential Equations, and MATH:3550 Engineering Mathematics V: Vector Calculus) are similar, but they cover material in different orders with different emphases. Students who have taken courses in one sequence must receive approval from their advisor before taking courses in the other sequence.

Students who consider taking MATH:1860 Calculus II after MATH:1350 Quantitative Reasoning for Business or MATH:1460 Calculus for the Biological Sciences must consult with their advisor; they also must take a math placement test.
