bachelor of science in mathematics
the mathematics major and minor programs are designed to:
additional requirements for a mathematics major leading to a general secondary teaching credential are listed in the college of education section. a student must declare a double major in mathematics and education for a secondary teaching degree.
bs mathematics goals include the following:
students completing the mathematics program at the uog will:
ma pr-1: demonstrate critical thinking, problem solving skills and ability to use mathematical methods by identifying, evaluating, classifying, analyzing, synthesizing data and abstract ideas in various contexts and situations.
ma pr-2: exhibit a sound conceptual understanding of the nature of mathematics, and demonstrate advanced mathematical skills in mathematical analysis, modern algebra and other mathematical discipline(s).
ma pr-3: argue and reason using mathematics, read, create and write down logically correct mathematical proofs, use exact mathematical language and communicate mathematics efficiently orally, in writing and using information technology tools.
ma pr-4: apply abstract thinking, mathematical methods, models and current practices in the sciences, including state-of-the-art mathematical software, to solve problems in theoretical mathematics or in a diverse area of mathematical applications.
ma pr-5: show maturity in mathematical knowledge and thinking that prepares and encourages students to pursue graduate studies in mathematics or in related fields.
ma pr-6: demonstrate an appreciation of and enthusiasm for inquiry, learning and creativity in mathematical sciences, a sense of exploration
that enables them to pursue lifelong learning and up-to-date professional expertise in their careers through various areas of jobs, including governmental, business
or industrial jobs in mathematics, related sciences, education or technology.
each mathematics major must complete studies with a cumulative gpa of 2.3 in the courses specified as required courses for the major.

ma341, ma411, ma421, ma422, and any one of ma301, ma361 or ma375.
electives (9 credit hours): a minimum of nine credit hours of upper division mathematics (ma) courses in addition to those already required.
required courses (17 credit hours): ma203, ma204, ma205 and ma302.
electives (12 credit hours): a minimum of six (6) credit hours of upper division mathematics (ma) courses in addition to ma302.
there are several job opportunities for (preferably but not necessarily) math major and minor students in the division of computer science and mathematics.
applicants must have passed ma203 (calculus i) with an a.
