Course Descriptions

Please see the Course Descriptions section of this catalog. Courses offered by the Department of Mathematics include those with the following designations: MATH, MATW. 



The Department of Mathematics offers the Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics and the Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics. High school certification in mathematics and middle school certification in mathematics may be obtained with the Bachelor of Science.

The mathematics department hires students as computer lab monitors or paper graders. For information contact the department administrative coordinator.

 

Introduction

As the language in which nature speaks to us, mathematics has been a vital ingredient in physics and chemistry and the intellectual fabrics of a broad range of disciplines, increasing its impact on such diverse areas as space science, management and the social sciences. More recently, the fundamental role of mathematics has been recognized in biology and medicine. Moreover, it has long been an essential component of the school and college curriculum, especially for the preparation of scientists and engineers. Mathematics is the foundation of our technological society and is a growing, changing discipline with new results constantly being discovered. The computer has extended the reach and power of mathematics, making it even more crucial that young people be solidly grounded in the subject. Mathematics is a crucial component of our culture and a discipline essential to the well-being of American science and technology, as well as to economic strength, industrial competitiveness and national defense.

The department offers undergraduate programs in mathematics of quality, scope, and flexibility.

The Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics has the flexibility to permit a student to tailor the degree plan to fit individual needs. Courses required for this degree expose one to a wide range of mathematics and to thought patterns and problem solving skills useful in all of life. This degree is excellent preparation for many careers and has the flexibility to prepare one for graduate study in mathematics, statistics, operations research, medicine, business, and many other areas.

The Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics teaching is designed to prepare high school mathematics teachers. There are several courses in this degree which are specifically tailored to the needs of students preparing to pass the Texas teacher certification examination in mathematics at the high school level.

The Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics for middle school teaching is designed to prepare middle school mathematics teachers. This degree is designed to meet the needs of students preparing to pass the Texas teacher certification examination in mathematics at the middle school level.

The Bachelor of Science in mathematics – concentration in actuarial science – is designed specifically for students whose career goals include the actuarial field.

The Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics is a strong liberal arts degree. The degree requires a minor, and it is suitable for anyone wanting a degree in mathematics while at the same time taking several courses in a different discipline.

The department expects any graduate with a major in mathematics to have the following abilities: (1) to analyze and solve problems using techniques of undergraduate mathematics; (2) to undertake independent study of literature in mathematics; (3) to communicate in both oral and written form the results of mathematical problems and/or investigations; and (4) to use technology in solving mathematical problems.

ACU’s elementary mathematics courses are planned so that students who take precalculus or calculus start at a level suitable to their preparation. Placement in these courses is based on results of the COMPASS placement exam.

Credit by examination for calculus is available through national exams. See “Credit by Examination” brochure available in the Testing Office.

Study Abroad Expectations

All students are encouraged to participate in ACU’s Study Abroad program. Classes offered at Study Abroad sites vary depending on the site. Academic advisors can assist students in planning ahead for their Study Abroad experience and should be consulted during the freshman year.

CRITERIA FOR ADMISSION TO TEACHER EDUCATION

Before taking more than 6 hours of any combination of EDUC classes, a student must first be admitted to the Teacher Education Program.

 

To be admitted to the Teacher Education Program, a students must:

     1. Complete and submit an application for admission into the Teacher Education Program;

     2. Be enrolled in or have completed the first 45 semester hours of credit;

     3. Have a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.7 (2.7 or higher in the content field);

     4. Complete 6 hours of University Core English with no grade lower than a “C”;

     5. Pass all three sections of the Texas Higher Education assessment (THEA) test, with a score
         on the reading section of 260 or higher, a score on the math section of 230 or higher and
         a score on the writing section of 220 or higher;

     6. Be enrolled in or successfully complete (“C” or better) EDUC 211 Educational Foundations
         and Multicultural Perspectives (If admitted before completion of EDUC 211, admission will
         be contingent upon completing the course with a “C” or better. In the event that the
         student does not complete this course successfully, admission to the program will be
         suspended until this requirement is fulfilled.);

     7. Receive approval from the Teacher Education Admissions and Review Committee.

         An interview with the committee may be required.

 

Any exemptions or modifications to the above requirements due to special circumstances must be requested through the chair of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. All requests will be reviewed and must be approved by the Teacher Education Admissions and Review Committee. In addition, admission to teacher education is not the final step in the process. In order to remain in the program, the prospective teacher must continue to meet the GPA requirement (2.7). Approval to take Education Block classes (411/412 and 431/432) and to enroll in student teaching must be obtained from the Teacher Education Admissions and Review Committee before enrolling in those classes.
