Every fall approximately 1000 to 1200 students enroll in our diverse undergraduate course offerings. Future mathematics majors generally (but not always) begin with one of our introductory proof-based courses, MAT215 (Analysis in a Single Variable) or MAT214 (Introduction to Number Theory). Our other lower division courses, numbered between 100 and 204, develop key analytic skills at a variety of levels appropriate for prospective majors in the natural sciences, engineering, finance, economics and other social sciences.
