# BS in Mathematics

All baccalaureate degree programs at the University of North Georgia (UNG) have as a requirement the satisfactory completion of at least 60 semester credit hours comprising the six areas of the Core Curriculum. For the BS degree in Mathematics a student must either take MATH 1113 (Precalculus) in **Area A** and MATH 1450 (Calculus I) in Area D or take MATH 1450 (Calculus I) in **Area A **and MATH 2460 (Calculus II) in **Area D**.

##### Mathematics content requirements listed below. Click to expand.

MATH 1450 - Calculus I, if not taken in Area A or Area D

MATH 2460 - Calculus II, if not taken in Area D

MATH 2470 - Calculus III

MATH 2800 - Intro to Proof

Carry over hours from Area A and/or Area D (1-2 hours)

One of the following:

- MATH 2400 - Elementary Statistics
- MATH 2510 - Introduction to Discrete Mathematics
- Note that either MATH 2400 or MATH 2510 can replace MATH 2460 in Area F when MATH 2460 is in Area D.

One of the following:

MATH 3000 - Differential Equations

MATH 3600 - Abstract Algebra I

MATH 3650 - Linear Algebra

MATH 4200 - Real Analysis I

MATH 4950 - Senior Project

One of the following:

Mathematics Electives: 12 semester hours of MATH courses at the 3000 level or above. These may not include:

- MATH 3100
- MATH 3110
- MATH 3116
- MATH 3140
- MATH 3150

A minor is required. The content area for the minor is chosen by the student without restrictions.

Minors whose content is related to mathematics offer increased efficiency. The Department of Mathematics statistics minor is very compatible with the mathematics major, with the calculus requirements in Area F counting for both major and minor. Additionally, a minor in Computer Science requires CSCI 1301 which mathematics majors will already have taken in Area F.

Students should consult an advisor in the content area of their minor before beginning the coursework.

Minor - complete any UNG minor. Statistics and Computer Science minors have particular synergy.

## Degree Map

A degree map is provided below for a mathematics major who takes a statistics minor. Mathematics majors in their first two years should focus on completing the core curriculum, efficiently working through the Key Prerequisites for mathematics content (MATH 2460 and MATH 2800) and beginning 3000-level mathematics content courses. The degree map is a suggestion only. Please discuss your plan of study with your advisor to make sure that you meet all requirements.

Please note that a minor is required, but the content for the minor is left to the student's choice from current UNG minors. You should speak with an advisor in the content area of your chosen minor (at the latest) during your second year so that you can complete the prerequisites and coursework for that minor.

##### Click below for a year by year suggested course of study.

Mathematics majors should complete Calculus II (MATH 2460) during the first year because it is a **Key Prerequisite.** If Calc II has not been completed by spring semester of the first year, mathematics majors should consider taking it in the summer before the second year begins.

### Fall Semester - 14 hours

MATH 1450 Calculus I, 4 hours

ENGL 1101 English Composition I, 3 hours

HIST 1112 World Civilization II, 3 hours

### Why this student is on track

**Area A** of the core is complete (MATH 1450, ENGL 1101 and 1102) as are **Area B** (HIST 1112 and Foreign Language) and **Area D** (MATH 2460 and PHYS 1111(L) and 1112(L)). A lab science * sequence* is required in

**Area D**.

Mathematics majors should complete Intro to Proofs (MATH 2800) by end of the second year because it is a **Key Prerequisite.** If Proofs has not been completed by spring semester of the second year, mathematics majors should ensure that it is completed no later than fall semester of the third year. Otherwise, graduation may be delayed.
