## Bachelor's Degrees in Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics and the Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mathematics. The Bachelor of Science degree may also be acquired with the explicit addition of one of these options: actuarial science, applied mathematics, pure mathematics, statistics, or secondary teaching certification.

The Bachelor of Science pure math option is primarily intended for students wishing to pursue graduate work in mathematics. The applied mathematics option is aimed at students seeking careers as mathematicians in the emerging high-tech industries. The actuarial science option is intended for students with an interest in a career involving various applications of mathematics to the world of business. The option with secondary teaching certification is intended for students desiring to teach mathematics at the secondary school level, and is offered in coordination with UT Arlington's UTeach program. The Bachelor of Arts degree is intended for those students seeking a traditional liberal arts education with an emphasis on mathematics.

All students seeking a bachelor's degree in mathematics must take at least two mathematics sequences. A sequence is defined as a 3300-level course followed by a 4300-level course in the same general area of mathematics. Each of the two sequences must build from distinct 3300-level courses. The approved sequences are as follows:

MATH 3313 & MATH 4311 | INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY and STOCHASTIC MODELS AND SIMULATION | 6 |

or STATS 3313 & STATS 4311 | INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY and STOCHASTIC MODELS AND SIMULATION | |

MATH 3313 & MATH 4312 | INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY and PROBABILITY | 6 |

or STATS 3313 & STATS 4312 | INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY and PROBABILITY | |

MATH 3313 & MATH 4313 | INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY and APPLICATIONS OF MATHEMATICAL STATISTICS | 6 |

or STATS 3313 & STATS 4313 | INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY and APPLICATIONS OF MATHEMATICAL STATISTICS | |

MATH 3321 & MATH 4321 | ABSTRACT ALGEBRA I and ABSTRACT ALGEBRA II | 6 |

MATH 3335 & MATH 4303 | ANALYSIS I and INTRODUCTION TO TOPOLOGY | 6 |

MATH 3335 & MATH 4334 | ANALYSIS I and ADVANCED MULTIVARIABLE CALCULUS | 6 |

MATH 3335 & MATH 4335 | ANALYSIS I and ANALYSIS II | 6 |

MATH 3345 & MATH 4345 | NUMERICAL ANALYSIS AND COMPUTER APPLICATIONS and NUMERICAL ANALYSIS & COMPUTER APPLICATIONS II | 6 |

MATH 3314 & MATH 4314 | DISCRETE MATHEMATICS and ADVANCED DISCRETE MATHEMATICS | 6 |

MATH 3318 & MATH 4324 | DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS and INTRODUCTION TO PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS | 6 |

MATH 3318 & MATH 4318 | DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS and MATHEMATICAL METHODS FOR SCIENCES | 6 |

For the statistics option, the second sequence must be one of the following:

MATH 3313 & MATH 4311 | INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY and STOCHASTIC MODELS AND SIMULATION | 6 |

or STATS 3313 & STATS 4311 | INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY and STOCHASTIC MODELS AND SIMULATION | |

MATH 3313 & MATH 4313 | INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY and APPLICATIONS OF MATHEMATICAL STATISTICS | 6 |

or STATS 3313 & STATS 4313 | INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY and APPLICATIONS OF MATHEMATICAL STATISTICS |

For the actuarial science option, the second sequence must be one of the following:

MATH 3335 & MATH 4335 | ANALYSIS I and ANALYSIS II | 6 |

MATH 3335 & MATH 4334 | ANALYSIS I and ADVANCED MULTIVARIABLE CALCULUS | 6 |

MATH 3345 & MATH 4345 | NUMERICAL ANALYSIS AND COMPUTER APPLICATIONS and NUMERICAL ANALYSIS & COMPUTER APPLICATIONS II | 6 |

It is strongly recommended that mathematics majors take MATH 3330 INTRODUCTION TO MATRICES AND LINEAR ALGEBRA and MATH 3300 INTRODUCTION TO PROOFS as early as possible, since these courses are prerequisites for many other 3000/4000-level courses. It is suggested to take MATH 3330 INTRODUCTION TO MATRICES AND LINEAR ALGEBRA simultaneously with Calculus III. Mathematics majors must take MATH 3300 INTRODUCTION TO PROOFS before attempting the required courses MATH 3321 ABSTRACT ALGEBRA I and MATH 3335 ANALYSIS I. It is strongly recommended that mathematics majors with little or no computer programming experience satisfy the computer programming requirement as early as possible with CSE 1310 INTRODUCTION TO COMPUTERS & PROGRAMMING, CSE 1311 INTRODUCTION TO PROGRAMMING FOR ENGINEERS, CSE 1320 INTERMEDIATE PROGRAMMING, CSE 1325 OBJECT-ORIENTED PROGRAMMING, or MAE 2360 NUMERICAL ANALYSIS & PROGRAMMING.

## Teacher Certification

Students interested in earning a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in mathematics with secondary teacher certification should refer to the “Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with Secondary Teaching Certification” degree plan for teacher certification requirements. Students should also see an advisor in the UTeach Arlington department.

## Second Major

A student who satisfies the requirements for any other baccalaureate degree qualifies for having mathematics named as a second major upon completion of nine mathematics courses at 3000/4000 level (except for capstone mathematics courses specifically for prospective middle or secondary grades mathematics teachers). The following courses are required:

MATH 3300 | INTRODUCTION TO PROOFS | 3 |

MATH 3314 | DISCRETE MATHEMATICS | 3 |

MATH 3330 | INTRODUCTION TO MATRICES AND LINEAR ALGEBRA | 3 |

MATH 3321 | ABSTRACT ALGEBRA I | 3 |

MATH 3335 | ANALYSIS I | 3 |

Select one of the following: | 3 | |

ABSTRACT ALGEBRA II | ||

ANALYSIS II | ||

ADVANCED MULTIVARIABLE CALCULUS | ||

Total Hours | 18 |

Besides the sequence MATH 3321 ABSTRACT ALGEBRA I-MATH 4321 ABSTRACT ALGEBRA II or the sequence MATH 3335 ANALYSIS I and (MATH 4335 ANALYSIS II or MATH 4334 ADVANCED MULTIVARIABLE CALCULUS), a second sequence must be part of the second major. The GPA requirements on the mathematics courses for a second major are identical to those listed below under the heading Graduation Requirements.

## First-time Admission Requirements

Students who wish to apply for major status in mathematics must first complete the University and College of Science requirements and the specific requirements of the Department of Mathematics listed below.

- Overall GPA of 2.25;
- Minimum GPA of 2.25 in at least nine hours of mathematics courses in residence at the level of MATH 1426 CALCULUS I or above, excluding capstone mathematics courses specifically for prospective middle or secondary grades mathematics teachers;
- At least six hours from the science or computer science courses listed in the mathematics degree plans; and
- Twelve hours of courses of the University core curriculum in disciplines other than science and mathematics.

Students currently enrolled at the University may qualify to change their major to mathematics by meeting the requirements listed above.

## Satisfactory Academic Standard Requirement

Majors whose overall GPA or GPA in major courses falls below 2.25 will be required to change their major.

To re-enter as a mathematics major, the student must meet the requirements listed in the First-time Admissions Requirements section.

## Non-Credit Courses

The following courses will not be counted for credit (as mathematics or electives) toward a bachelor's degree in mathematics:

MATH 1301 | CONTEMPORARY MATHEMATICS | 3 |

MATH 1302 | COLLEGE ALGEBRA | 3 |

## Minor

Students in non-engineering majors may minor in mathematics by taking 18 hours of mathematics courses with an average GPA in mathematics courses of 2.0, and with at least six hours of 3000/4000 level courses. The courses that may be counted toward a math minor are MATH 1426 CALCULUS I and above, except for capstone mathematics courses specifically for prospective middle or secondary grades mathematics teachers. Nine hours of the minor must be taken in residence. Engineering majors seeking a math minor should refer to the College of Engineering section of this catalog for the requirements for the engineering math minor.
