degree the student then builds on this foundation with a selection of nine upper division mathematics courses chosen to include pure mathematics courses in real analysis and algebra a statistics course at the upper division level two completed upper division sequences including one in pure mathematics and electives to complete the required nine upper division courses Students must also take at least one course in computer programming and one course in another discipline that has a strong mathemtical or computational component which cannot be a course counting for any other part of the B S requirements for example the B S core The requirements for the B S in Mathematics follow the recommendations of the Mathematics Association of America for degree programs in mathematics that prepare students for graduate work Required Courses Students majoring in mathematics start with a core of five courses 18 hours MATH 1510 Calculus I old nr Math 142 MATH 1520 Calculus II old nr Math 143 MATH 2530 Calculus III old nr Math 244 must be taken at St Louis University with a grade of at least C MATH 2660 Principles of Mathematics old nr Math 266 MATH 3120 Introduction to Linear Algebra old nr Math 315 Students pursuing a B S in mathematics must pass at least nine further additional upper division mathematics beyond MATH 3120 A GPA of 2 00 C average or higher is required in upper division mathematics courses counting toward the major including MATH 3120 The additional upper division courses are built around year long sequences of courses in five areas of mathematics MATH 3550 and 4550 or 4570 Differential Equations old nrs math 355 455 457 MATH 4110 and 4120 or 4150 Introduction to Abstract Algebra and Linear Algebra or Number Theory old nrs math 411 412 and 415 MATH 4210 and 4220 or 4230 Introduction to Analysis and Metric Spaces or Multivariable Analysis old nrs Math 421 422 and 423 MATH 4310 and 4320 or 4360 Complex Variables old nrs Math 451 452 453 MATH 4810 4820 Probability and Statistics old nrs Math 401 402 Other upper division courses are offered on an occasional basis Pure Mathematics Requirement 6 hours The B S in Mathematics requires both MATH 4110 Introduction to Abstract Algebra and MATH 4210 Introduction to Real Analysis old nrs Math 411 421 Statistics Requirement 3 hours The B S in Mathematics requires at least one statistics course with a MATH or STAT designation at the 3000 or 4000 level Sequence Requirement 6 9 hours Students are required to complete two upper division sequences one of which must be in pure mathematics a sequence starting with either MATH 4110 or MATH 4210 The other sequence will depend on the further educational and career plans of the individual student If the second selected sequence is a second pure mathematics sequence or a statistics sequence then this requirement takes only a further 6 hours to complete rather than 9 hours Mathematics Electives 9 12 hours Students select three

Index Those students can take one or more of our skills assessment tests to determine optimal placement Some freshmen come in with a lower Math Index and math placement recommendation than they feel is appropriate Those students can take the skills assessment test to determine if they have mastered the prerequisites and can proceed to the next course Math Index To assess the math skills of our incoming students we use the Math Index This score is computer from your high school GPA and ACT math score or SAT math score We base our placement advice on five years of data We differentiate between students who only need one course and those who need a sequence Many students just need to take one math course to satisfy the core requirement for mathematics and their placement criteria are a little more flexible We refer to those students as being in non math intensive programs There are also students who are in math intensive programs Examples are students in the sciences who will need to take several mathematics courses over the years Students in the math intensive programs are advised to start conservatively with their placement If one needs to take multiple sequential math courses it is a good idea to make sure one gets As and Bs in those early classes The reason is that our statistics show that a student with a C only has a 50 chance of passing the next course Math Index Course Placement Non Math intensive programs 600 Math 092 Basic Mathematics 700 Math 094 Intro to Elementary Algebra I Math 095 Elementary Algebra II Math 096 Intermediate Algebra 750 Math 122 Finite Mathematics Math 124 Math and the Art of Escher Math 125 Math in the Real World Math 126 Statistics in Sports and Politics
