## Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics

To qualify for a bachelor’s degree, a student must satisfactorily complete with a **grade of B or better** each of the courses in the appropriate track with one possible exception of a C/C+.

In addition, for the bachelor of science a student must take:

**50:640:190 Foundations of Calculus**(to be offered first in Spring 2015), and**50:640:252 Advanced Linear Algebra**(to be offered first in Fall 2015) instead of the existing 50:640:250 Linear Algebra.

The total number of credits for the degree is 48.

The requirements for** Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mathematics** remain **unchanged**. The total number of credits for B.A. is 45.

## Master of Science Program

The graduate program in mathematics offers a master’s degree in Pure Mathematics, Industrial/Applied Mathematics, Mathematical Computer Science or Teaching in Mathematical Sciences.

## Learning Outcomes for Mathematical Literacy

This General Education Foundations category addresses the basic mathematical skills that a student needs in order to succeed at Rutgers and to become an informed and empowered citizen. A student fulfills this requirement by passing a mathematics course (640 prefix) at the 100 or higher level. Depending on the course chosen, the student will be able to demonstrate achievement of several of the following goals:

- Analyze patterns and identify whether the pattern continues and is consistent.
- Use the symbols of logical analysis to determine whether an argument based upon given premises is valid.
- Have the ability to apply basic geometric insights relative to distance, area, surface area and volume.
- Use critical thinking skills comfortably with all operations with real numbers.
- Understand the properties of algebra and be able to solve real world applications.
- Enhance reasoning skills by the study of proofs in geometry.
- Develop proficiency in the interpretation of information using set analysis applied to data distribution.
- Mathematically model and then analyze phenomena using techniques from logic, number theory, algebra, and/or calculus.
- Use group theory and numeration systems to understand the properties that apply to everyday events.
