Technically Einstein was a physicist, but you know what? He was also really good at math, like you. You’re the only one of your friends who doesn’t use a phone to calculate the tip and, let’s be honest, you own at sudoku. Numbers on a whiteboard may be in the background of scientific, medical, and engineering feats but hey, they’re still there.

*A student should have a very good background in mathematics, including two years of high school algebra and one course in trigonometry before taking MATH 2413. Otherwise it is recommended the student take MATH 1314 and MATH 1316 prior to enrolling in MATH 2413.

**Elective hours must come from courses in Humanities, Business, Laboratory Sciences, Social Science, Mathematics, or Physical Education.
