A study of the calculus of functions of two or more more variables and of vector-valued functions. Topics may include techniques and applications of differentiation, techniques and applications of iterated integrals, line integrals and surface integrals, Green's Theorem, Stoke's Theorem and the Divergence Theorem. Prerequisite: MATH 1802.
(3 Hours)
MATH 2900

Intro to Mathematical Proofs

An introduction to reading and writing mathematical proofs. Proof techniques and methods will be applied in areas that may include logic, sets, relations, functions, continuity, convergence, and countability arguments. Prerequisite: MATH 1701 or MATH 1801.
(3 Hours)
MATH 3501

Linear Algebra

A study of the theory and applications of vector spaces, linear transformations, and matrices. Prerequisite: MATH 1701 or MATH 1801.
(3 Hours)
MATH 3533

Abstract Algebra

A study of basic algebraic structures, including groups, rings and fields. Prerequisites: MATH 2900 and MATH 3501.
(3 Hours)
MATH 3541

Advanced Calculus

Rigorous treatment of real numbers, elements of set theory, sequences, limits, continuity, differentiation, and integration. Prerequisites: MATH 1802 and MATH 2900.
(3 Hours)
MATH 4400

Capstone Experience

Same as CIS 4400. A capstone experience for advanced mathematics, mathematical finance or computer science majors to integrate content learned in courses spanning the major, including analysis, synthesis, and evaluation of learned knowledge, in a project having a professional focus and effective communication of the results of the study. Course requirements also include a satisfactory score on a major field achievement test. Prerequisite: Junior or Senior Mathematics, Mathematical Finance or Computer Science Major.
(3 Hours)

THREE Electives from Mathematics at or above 3000 level (9 hours)
