Mathematics & Statistics
(Bachelor of Science) The Mathematics discipline has programs of study in two emphasis areas: mathematics and statistics. Students choosing the emphasis in mathematics will focus their studies in a discipline which has been an important part of our intellectual heritage for centuries. Students select this area of emphasis if they are interested in mathematics for its own sake (pure mathematics) or as a tool for analyzing and solving real-world problems (applied mathematics). Graduates may use their skills in many careers, including fields such as secondary education and engineering. Other typical areas of employment traditional for mathematicians are those requiring physics. Today, mathematical techniques are required in social, industrial, and management realms as well. The emphasis in statistics provides applied courses in experimental design, multivariate statistical analysis, and applied regression analysis. Students also gain an extensive background in statistical computing. Students who wish to enter actuarial professions may prepare for the first two actuarial examinations by completing the calculus sequence, linear algebra sequence, and statistical theory sequence. Students who concentrate studies in statistics may find employment in business, industry, and government, as well as pursue further professional training in graduate school. Program Entrance Requirements The University of Wisconsin System placement examination in mathematics is used to advise entering freshmen about the level at which they should enter university courses. In rare cases, a student who has been accelerated and has mastery of calculus may, with advice of faculty, enter Calculus and Analytic Geometry II ( MATH 203 ) . Upon earning a “C” or better in MATH 203 , an additional four credits are granted for MATH 202 . Credits for calculus at UW-Green Bay may also be awarded for satisfactory performance on an AP exam. More details are available at https://www.uwgb.edu/otsa/credit-for-prior-learning/advanced-placement-(ap)-program/ . Retroactive credit for MATH 202 is not awarded to students who transfer to UW-Green Bay and have completed coursework deemed to be equivalent to MATH 203 . If the student completes MATH 209 or MATH 305 at UW-Green Bay, they may submit an approved Retroactive Credit Form to the Registrar’s Office to be awarded credit for MATH 202 only. Mathematics majors often choose an additional minor. Examples are Environmental Science or Business Administration. Students seeking information on teacher certification should contact the Education Office.

MATH 202. Calculus and Analytic Geometry I. 4 Credits.
Differential and integral calculus of the elementary functions with associated analytic geometry; transcendental functions; techniques of integration; application.
P: MATH 104 with at least a C grade or WPT-MFND score >465 and WPT-AALG score >525 and WPT-TAG score >525
Fall and Spring.
CHEM 202. Math for Chemistry Discussion: Principles of Chemistry II. 1 Credit.
This discussion course is designed to supplement the concepts presented in CHEM 212/214. Activities will focus on early exposure to math concepts in time for use in CHEM 212/214, deeper explorations of the mathematics and chemistry concepts addressed in these courses, and mathematics and chemistry skills necessary for success in CHEM 212/214.
P: Concurrent enrollment in CHEM 212/214.
