# Mathematics B.S.

**Outcomes**

1. Students will demonstrate proficiency at formulating questions and use appropriate mathematical techniques to solve problems, both inside and outside mathematics.

2. Students will recognize the need for mathematical rigor, and competently analyze and produce rigorous mathematical arguments.

3. Students will seek out, understand, and clearly communicate mathematics with professional and non-professional audiences, using technologies as appropriate.

4. Students will be exposed to the major areas of mathematics with an emphasis on making connections between the disciplines.

## Curriculum

Must pass with a D- or better. Note: A course cannot be counted toward more than one core area, or toward both a core and a major requirement.### Recommended Schedule

A recommended course sequence for Mathematics B.S. is provided for students as guidance to complete their major in four years.
