- A total of six credit hours from the university approved GEP Mathematical Sciences course list.
- At least one course must have an MA or ST prefix.
- Special Note: If a student changes a General Education course except for HES courses from a letter grade to credit-only (S/U), then the course will not satisfy the GEP requirements. Consult your academic advisor if you have questions.
- A course taken to satisfy a Major requirement may also satisfy this requirement if the course is on the approved GEP Mathematical Sciences course list.
- A course that satisfies the Mathematical Sciences requirement may also satisfy the Global Knowledge or U.S. Diversity co-requisite if the course also exists on either university approved GEP co-requisite course list.
A logical approach to problem solving is important for successful functioning in society. It is also important that students be able to formulate models, be critical consumers of quantitative information, communicate mathematically and solve problems.
Each course in Mathematical Sciences will provide instruction and guidance that help students to:
- improve and refine mathematical problem-solving abilities; and
- develop logical reasoning skills.
