Program objectives for a B.S. in Mathematical Sciences are to: (a) understand the notion of a real valued function; (b) understand the concept of differentiation and be able to apply the rules of differentiation to functions of one real variable. Be able to use these techniques to solve problems in optimization; (c) understand the use of vector analysis to describe the geometry of higher dimensional spaces; (d) understand how to extend the concepts of the calculus of functions of one variable to higher dimensions; (e) use matrices to solve systems of linear equations and to describe linear transformations; (f) understand abstract structures in mathematics; (g) be able to read and present mathematical proofs including an understanding of the basic types of proofs; (h) be able to formulate their own proofs of simple mathematical statements; (i) be able to use a computer to assist with the solution of mathematical problems; (j) Have advanced knowledge of at least one specialist area of mathematics: Statistics, Mathematics, or Teaching Mathematics.
