MathematicsCourse Descriptions • Sample Program of Study

Students completing a degree in Mathematics will:
Assessment of mathematics knowledge and skills will take place in the junior and senior years of the majors. In order to assess student progress in the objective areas, students will create a research project for MAT 406 and take the PRAXIS exam prior to graduation.
Upon completion of the mathematics major at Lincoln University, students will have gained proficiency with the graphics calculator and a basic understanding of a computer algebra system such as Mathematica or Maple. Students will satisfy the computer literacy requirement through completion of MAT 461, which is a computer intensive course.
An Academic Enrichment (AE) course in mathematics is a precollege course designed to prepare students to succeed in subsequent collegelevel math courses. Based on ACT scores or a placement test, entering freshmen or transfer students may be placed in an AE course. Academic emichment courses carry credit for determining grade point average, but do not carry credit for graduation or degree requirements. Grades in the enrichment course are “A, “B,” “C,” “PR,” and “F.” Students who do not exit with a passing grade must re enroll the following semester.
Listed courses may not be taught every semester or every year. The department head and departmental advisors have information about projected course offerings for a semester/year. A minimum of 40 upper division hours (those numbered 300 and above) is required for graduation. Major: B.S. or B.A. in Mathematics
