Mathematics - Major
A MAJOR IN MATHEMATICS
Schreiner University offers courses leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree and the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Mathematics. The Mathematics program is designed for those students who wish to pursue a career in business or in education. It also builds a solid foundation for advanced study in Mathematics. Students who wish to become teachers can use the required professional education courses as electives in the prescribed program. French or German is recommended as foreign language. The major in Mathematics consists of 25 advanced hours.
For the B.A. degree: MATH 2422, 2423, 3312, 3313, 3324, 3425. Either 4321, 4326, 4333, or 4399 must be designated as the capstone experience. Students may choose 21-23 hours of electives. PHYS 1401 and 1402 are recommended electives.
For the B.S. degree: MATH 2422, 2423, 3305, 3330, 3312, 3313, 3324, 3425. Either 4321, 4326, 4333, or 4399 must be designated as the capstone experience. In addition PHYS 1401, 1402, IS 2310, 6 hours of additional information systems, and ENGL 1302. Students may choose 16-18 hours of electives. Students who did not enroll in MATH 2422 and MATH 2423 to satisfy their basic Mathematics distribution requirement must schedule these courses as part of their electives. NOTE: If a student is not prepared to enroll in MATH 2422 and MATH 2423 in his freshman year, he should enroll in MATH 1310 or MATH 1321. In this event the student should then enroll in MATH 2422 and MATH 2423 in sequence the next two semesters.
Students completing MATH 1321 at Schreiner University with a grade of "C'' or better will, upon written request to the Registrar, be given credit for MATH 1310. Students completing either MATH 2422 or a more advanced mathematics course at Schreiner University with a grade of ``C'' or better will, upon written request to the Registrar, be given credit for MATH 1310 and MATH 1321. Students who plan to major in Mathematics, Information Systems, Physics, Chemistry, or Engineering should enroll in MATH 2422 and MATH 2423 if their background in mathematics is sufficiently good. If not, they should enroll in MATH 1310 or MATH 1321 first. Students majoring in Business Administration should enroll in either of these: (1) MATH 1311, or (2) MATH 2422. If not, they should take MATH 1310 first. Students seeking teacher certification in mathematics should consult the Teacher Education section of this catalog for specific course selection.
Placement in mathematics courses is based on mathematics placement assessment.
