    1. Students who major or minor in mathematics should begin with MATH 1320, Calculus I, unless deficient in mathematics preparation.
    2. Qualified students are encouraged to earn credit by examination.
    3. Courses designed to fulfill degree requirements should be carefully selected in consultation with the department and the student’s advisor. Mathematics students should take CSCI 1320 to fulfill the computer science core curriculum requirement.
    4. MATH 0300, Introductory Algebra, is the course a student should take in preparation for MATH 1310, College Algebra, if the ACT mathematics score is below 17 (SAT mathematics score below 450).
    5. Students are encouraged to use calculators, graphing calculators, and computer.

    Teacher Certification Program
    Students seeking teacher certification should earn the Bachelor of Behavioral Science degree as described above. All students seeking certification must have the written consent of the head of the department of Mathematics to be eligible to receive a bar code from the Dean of the Irvin School of Education to take the TExES.
