Advice For Math Majors
 See your Math Department faculty advisor every semester for advice about classes and degree requirements. Students should bring a completed MAP Template to the meetings with their advisor. The default advisor for Mathematics is Professor Tracy Payne, and the default advisor for Applied Mathematics is Professor Xiaoxia 'Jessica' Xie. However, you may chose any faculty member who agrees to be your advisor.
 Get started on the Calculus sequence immediately. Refer to the prerequisites chart to be sure you have first met the prerequisites for Calculus I (unless you have tested into Calculus I through one of the accepted placement exams).
 Get through the common Math/Stats core courses efficiently and early to avoid delay in graduation.
 Taking Math 2287 before Math 3326 is strongly encouraged.
 Taking Math 4406 before Math 4407 is recommended.
 Take at most three math classes per semester.
 Take one seniorlevel sequence before your senior year.
 If you are interested in applied math, recommended courses are Math 3362, 44212, 44412, 44501 and 4465. It is also recommended that you take some Biology (Biol 1101 + 1101L meet Goal 4) and Physics courses (Phys 22112 + 11134 meets Goal 5).
 If you are interested in applying to graduate school in mathematics, Math 3362, 44234, and 44078 are recommended.
 If you want to get a job in the industry, take 4400level statistics and English 3307 (Professional and Technical Writing).
