1 Mathematics (MAT) Faculty Mary Hayward, Chair Charles B. Carey Garnet Hauger, Affiliate Tim Wegner About the discipline The number of applications of mathematics has grown enormously in the natural, physical and social sciences over the past century. In addition, the computer has transformed problemsolving in both pure and applied mathematics. The mathematics department at Spring Arbor University has responded by developing a program designed to prepare students for a variety of careers or graduate and professional schools. The department offers three majors and three minors. The department provides services for three types of students. 1. All graduates of the University must have at least one quantitative literacy course. The department takes seriously its responsibility to design and teach courses that prepare University graduates to be quantitatively literate. Our selection of quantitative literacy courses takes into consideration applications in a variety of areas. 2. Some students major in programs that require the study of specialized mathematics. The department supplies courses for students from computer science, biology, chemistry, physics, health and exercise science, education and business. 3. For students wishing to major or minor in mathematics, the department offers a program consistent with the recommendations of Mathematical Association of America ( org), National Council of Teachers of Mathematics ( and Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences. Career opportunities Students who major or minor in mathematics pursue a variety of careers. Many certify to teach mathematics in elementary and secondary schools. A good proportion prepare for graduate school in mathematics or related fields. Still others combine their mathematics major or minor with other majors or minors (such as computer science, biology, chemistry, physics, business, accounting and health and exercise science) to prepare for entrylevel positions in business and industry. A probability and statistics minor is available for students who want to enhance their career options within their academic discipline with a quantitative emphasis. An interdisciplinary actuarial science major is available to help students prepare for careers that use mathematics in business and industry. Actuarial Science majors would be positioned to pass the first two actuarial exams (P and MF) before graduation, to obtain employment using their skills, and to pursue other educational opportunities that will allow them to advance in the field (graduate school, passing additional exams, etc.). See Actuarial Science. The department has a strong commitment to prepare students for careers in specific areas. For example, the department conducts special problem seminars to help students prepare to take the GRE and actuarial exams. The GRE exams are needed for students going to graduate school and the actuarial exams are needed by those preparing for careers in insurance, pension planning and risk management. The department has information on graduate schools in mathematics and related areas. In addition, the department often arranges independent studies for advanced work in mathematics for those students who have taken all of our current mathematics offerings and wish to prepare for specific graduate or professional programs. The department also works with majors in arranging internships and practica for students preparing for entrylevel jobs in businesses and industry. (See and 168
2 Program strengths and emphases The mathematics program at Spring Arbor University stresses two major strands in mathematics pure/ classical mathematics and applied mathematics. It is our belief that each complements the other, that the techniques of applied mathematics are based on the concepts and results of pure/classical mathematics, and that applications of mathematics often serve as an appropriate pedagogical segue into a study of pure/classical mathematics. The course offerings of the department have traditional pure/classical offerings like abstract algebra, linear algebra, real analysis and vector calculus. Within each of these courses, significant applications of concepts and results are considered. The department also offers courses more appropriately considered applied mathematics, such as differential equations, probability and statistics (see probability and statistics minor), numerical analysis, and mathematical modeling. Each of the topics studied in these courses is based firmly on theoretical aspects of pure/classical mathematics. The probability and statistics minor is intended for students who are not math majors or minors but who might want to strengthen their program with a quantitatively based minor. Students who take this minor with a major in biology or health and exercise science, are then prepared for graduate programs in biostatistics or other quantitatively oriented health related science programs. The combination of this minor with a major in finance or business, are then prepared for graduate programs in finance or more quantitatively oriented business programs. The faculty members in the mathematics department work closely with faculty from computer science, biology, chemistry, physics, health and exercise science, business, and education to provide mathematical experiences that serve their students. Requirements The hour mathematics major requires: MAT 232 Proof and Discrete Structures (3) Two additional courses from MAT level or above (excluding MAT 330, 331 and 342) OR Two courses from CPS level or above OR Two courses from PHY level or above The 30hour mathematics major for those certifying to teach elementary requires: Electives from the following to reach 30 hours: MAT 322 Abstract Algebra II (3) The 35hour mathematics major for those certifying to teach secondary requires: 169
3 The 20hour mathematics minor requires: Six additional hours in MAT level or above (excluding MAT 330,331 and 342). The 23hour mathematics minor for those certifying to teach elementary requires: The 26hour mathematics minor for those certifying to teach secondary requires: MAT 342 Foundations of Secondary School Mathematics (3) Note: MAT 342 and one other upper level course in this minor must be taken with SAU. The 24hour probability and statistics minor requires: CPS 201 Foundations of Computing I (4) MAT 363 Theory of Statistics I (3) MAT 364 Theory of Statistics II (3) See Physics for the Physics/Mathematics major. Students planning to attend graduate school in mathematics or a related area Recommended courses: MAT 422 Seminar: Topics in Advanced Mathematics (13) Students planning on entry level careers in business and industry Recommended courses: At least two courses in computer science beyond CPS 150. Students maximize their chances for employment and career advancement by obtaining a minor or second major in biology, business, chemistry, computer science, economics, accounting, health and exercise science or physics. Notes for general education: MAT 201 is required for the major and also meets the requirement for one of two natural science liberal arts courses. Mathematics majors who minor in biology, chemistry or physics will take courses in those programs that meet the requirement for the lab natural science liberal arts course. Notes for students certifying to teach: The mathematics for elementary major and minor meet certification requirements for elementary (complete Option I). The mathematics for secondary major and minor meet certification requirements for secondary. See Education for details. 170
