* This course may also be used to satisfy Core requirements.
** MTH 400 Secondary Methods in Mathematics may not be used for this requirement.
PHY 240, 241, 250, 251, are recommended general electives.
Students who plan to do graduate study in mathematics should select MTH 421 Abstract Algebra II and MTH 441 Mathematical Analysis II as electives in mathematics.
Students who wish to teach secondary school mathematics must satisfy admission requirements for the Liberal Arts Teacher Education Concentration (LATEC) and complete the General Education Core and Education Theory curriculum in the Secondary Education Certification Program. Additionally, these prospective mathematics teachers must take MTH 360, Probability and Statistics; MTH 380, Modern Geometry; and MTH 400, Secondary Methods in Mathematics, which may be used as a general elective but not as a mathematics elective.
