Mathematics Major www.math.emich.edu Mathematics: A Major that Opens Doors An Invitation from the Department Head Mathematics is a perfect choice for your major as you plan a career in business, industry, or prepare for graduate school. You’ll find that in the Department of Mathematics there will be many opportunities for you to become a part of our mathematical community, whether you decide to tutor in our tutoring center, join the math modeling team, or participate in the undergraduate research symposium. For information and resources about mathematics and careers, visit the homepage of the Mathematical Association of America (www.maa.org) We hope you will consider a mathematics major at EMU! -Dr. Carla Tayeh, Department Head Major in Mathematics MATH 120 Calculus I MATH 121 Calculus II MATH 122 Elem. Linear Algebra MATH 211 Intro to Math Proofs MATH 223 Multivariable Calculus MATH 370 Probability and Statistics I One course from the following: MATH 411 Abstract Algebra or MATH 416 Linear Algebra or MATH 420 Intro to Analysis Restricted Electives (12 credit hours) Technology requirement* (3 credit hours) Writing intensive requirement** TOTAL 40 credit hours Minor in Mathematics MATH 120 Calculus I MATH 121 Calculus II MATH 122 Elem. Linear Algebra One course from the following: MATH 211 Intro to Proofs MATH 360 Statistical Methods MATH 370 Probability and Statistics I Restricted Electives (5-6 credit hours) Technology requirement* (3 credit hours) TOTAL 23 credit hours *NOTE : Student may satisfy the technology requirement with a computer programming class (COSC 111 or COSC 145) **NOTE : At least one of the restricted elective courses needs to be a writing intensive course. NOTE: Major requires at least 9 hours of 300/400 level coursework; Minor requires at least 6 hours of 300/400 level coursework October 2010 Mathematics Courses – Restricted Electives MATH 311W Mathematical Problem Solving MATH 319 Mathematical Modeling MATH 325 Differential Equations MATH 341 College Geometry MATH 372 Problems in Actuarial Studies I MATH 407 Elementary Number Theory MATH 409 Cryptology MATH 411 Abstract Algebra MATH 416 Linear Algebra MATH 418 Modeling with Linear Algebra MATH 419W Introduction to Stochastic Mathematical Modeling MATH 420 Intro to Real Analysis MATH 424 Intro to Complex Variables MATH 425 Math for Scientists MATH 436 Intro to Numerical Analysis MATH 460 Applied Survey Sampling MATH 461 Linear Regression Analysis MATH 462 Design and Analysis of Experiments MATH 471 Probability and Statistics II MATH 472 Problems in Actuarial Studies MATH 474W Applied Statistics With advisor’s approval: MATH 479 Special Topics The writing intensive courses are denoted with a W after the course number. Join a Professional Organization Consider joining a professional organization, beginning your professional reading, and attending professional conferences. More information about the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) can be found at www.maa.org and the American Statistical Association (AMSA) can be found here www.amstat.org Learn more about the Michigan Section of the MAA at www.michmaa.org Calculate Your Major GPA Using An Online Calculator There is an online calculator available at http://www.emich.edu/aac/gpacalc.htm Enter the number of credit hours and grades earned for the courses on your major. Then, click on compute. Your major GPA must be 2.50 How do I declare my major? Please declare your major and minor at http://www.emich.edu/aac/majmin.htm When Am I Done? Students should file for a Graduation Audit once they have earned 95 credit hours. Applications are available online at http://www.emich.edu/registrar/gradinfo.htm Transfer Classes Before you take a class elsewhere, look up the Eastern Michigan University transfer equivalency here: http://it.emich.edu/service/online/tranequiv/ Math Advisors If you have more questions, please E-mail or visit a mathematics advisor.
