1413, 1510, 1520, 1521, 2105, and 12 additional credits in mathematics
electives numbered 1500 and higher; also three correlate courses chosen from
the course offerings in physics, computer science and economics (PHY 1041-1042
R&L and COM 1300 are strongly recommended).
MAT 1412, 1413, 1510, 2105, and any two of the following
electives: MAT 1520, 1521, 2215, 2461, 2462, 2601, 2651, 5000-level courses.
Also COM 1300, 1320, 1504, 1621, 2113, 2545, and one of COM 3610, 3640.
MAT 1412, 1413, 1510, 2105, 2461, either 2462
or 5266, plus any two 500-level courses or MAT 1520 and MAT 1521. Also two
electives in mathematics numbered 1500 or higher. Required correlate courses:
ECO 1010, COM 1300, ECO 1421, and one additional course having prefix ECO
are urged to take "honors" versions of the above courses, which will
in every case be accepted as a substitute for the generic
version. Students who are interested in becoming actuaries after
graduation should apply for an actuarial internship in the summer before their
senior year. They are urged to contact the Career
Center in the fall semester of their junior year. It is recommended that
applicants for actuarial internships have completed at least one of the
professional exams before applying; for information on the professional exams,
Beginning Fall, 2013, either or both of the courses "Natural World"
or "Experimental and Quantitative Methods" may be used as correlates
for the Mathematics major. But if either or both of these courses are used as
correlates, the three courses used to satisfy the correlate requirement must
also include COM 1300C. Similarly, a first-year seminar in economics, computer
science, or physics may be used to satisfy a correlate requirement if and only
if COM 1300C is also used to satisfy a correlate requirement.
The college exit requirement for
the mathematics major may be satisfied by any one of the following:
1. Graduate Record Examination Subject Test in Mathematics
2. First Actuarial Exam
3. Major Field Achievement Test in Mathematics
4. Putnam Examination
failed exam may be retaken once. A departmental exam may be given, at the
discretion of the chair, after the second failure. A departmental exam will not
be given unless there are special circumstances. A failed departmental exam may
not be retaken. The Putnam Examination may not be
taken without departmental permission; permission will not usually be granted
unless both semesters of Advanced Calculus or the equivalent have been taken
with high record.
MAT 1412, 1413, 1510, 2105 and 6
additional credits in mathematics electives numbered 1500 or higher.
The normal sequence of courses in the first two years is 1412, 1413, 1510, and
2105. A mathematics placement examination is administered at the beginning of
the semester to all students enrolled in MAT 1412. Students who fail to achieve
a satisfactory grade on the placement examination will be requested to transfer
to MAT 1160.
policy on exemption tests:
tests will only be considered for the courses COM 1300C, MAT 1412, MAT 1413.
Such tests may only be used to register for the next course in the appropriate
sequence: COM 1320C, MAT 1413, or MAT 1510, respectively. Exemption tests will
not be given unless the course was taken previously, either as an AP high
school course or in a college or university. Even in that case, a valid reason
must be given for the test. (For example, an exemption test may not be used to
replace a grade that was too low to transfer; but it may be used, for example,
for a course taken at a foreign university under a different system than ours.)
A student who places out of a required course via an exemption test must
replace the course with an advanced elective. No credit will be given as a
result of an exemption test. Calculus AP or BC courses may be used for advanced
placement, with credit, only if the score received was a 5.
