Field Description

Mathematics has been described as the queen of all sciences. Understanding mathematics enables one to explain and analyze not only science and nature but almost all disciplines from archeology to zoology. Most recently, mathematics has become an indispensable tool in finance and other business related areas. To ensure that mathematics is available for students with varied backgrounds and different professional goals, the department offers courses at all levels. Advanced courses are designed to be taken by mathematics and actuarial science majors and those in related fields.

The Majors

 

Mathematics

The major in mathematics is designed to enable the student to enter the marketplace (industrial or educational) or to pursue further studies in mathematics or allied fields at the graduate level. Interested students should meet with an advisor in the Department of Mathematics as early as possible for assistance in formulating an appropriate course of study.

Math Program Prerequisites
As a preliminary requirement, students must complete the calculus prerequisite, which may be achieved by any one of the six options.

Option 1:

 8 credits
 

Calculus AP Exam (BC) with a score of 4 or 5 (transfers to Baruch as  MTH 3010 Calculus II)

4 credits

The Minor

The minor in mathematics provides students with a background in the various theories and uses of mathematics. The minor requires the completion of MTH 3006, MTH 3010, MTH 3020, MTH 3030, or MTH 3050, and any other 3- or 4- or 5-credit mathematics course numbered 3000 or higher with the exception of MTH 4410 (which is not applicable toward the minor). Students must then complete a capstone course consisting of any mathematics course at the 4000-level or higher with the exceptions of MTH 4009, MTH 4119, and MTH 4410 (which may not be used as a capstone course).

Repeat for Mastery (Precalculus) and Calculus Prerequisite Changes

This pilot program, which consists of two parts, will run as an experiment for academic years 2018-2019 and 2019-2020.

The first part is to allow any student who earns grades of C-, D, or D+ to retake precalculus to achieve greater mastery.

MTH 2003 and MTH 2009 (a new course effective spring 2019) are Baruch’s precalculus courses; MTH 2000 and MTH 2001 are the precalculus courses for which transfer students receive credit. By allowing students to repeat the course, they are provided with an opportunity to improve both their course mastery and grade. Students may also repeat e-permit courses per the host college’s policies. In order to repeat any precalculus course, students must apply through the Office of the Registrar (151 East 25th Street, Room 850).

Please note:

  • Students will only receive credit for precalculus once.

  • This proposal does not affect college policy of allowing students to take the course a maximum of three times. The policy on repeating courses covers any combination of MTH 2003 and MTH 2009, e.g., one course taken three times, or a one-and-two combination. All combinations will be treated identically as three attempts.

  • A repeat for mastery course will not be eligible for TAP or Excelsior.

  • Students who earn grades of C or better in the repeated precalculus course may replace their previous passing grades in the calculation of the overall GPA. The precalculus repeat for mastery option is part of college’s existing 16-credit maximum for grade replacements. It will not retroactively effect a student’s pre-existing academic status. The following points should be noted:

      • A maximum of 16 credits of failing and/or repeat for mastery grades may be deleted from the calculation of the cumulative GPA during an undergraduate’s enrollment in CUNY. Whether students remain at a single college or transfer from one CUNY college to another, no more than 16 credits of grades can be replaced in the calculation of the cumulative GPA. Should the 16-credit limit be reached at a college other than Baruch, a student will not be permitted to replace credits at Baruch.

      • For a grade of C or better to replace a grade of C-, D, or D+ in the calculation of the cumulative GPA, the repeated course must be taken at Baruch. Students may repeat precalculus for mastery on permit to another institution, but the original grade will not be replaced. If a student retakes precalculus on permit at another CUNY campus, both the original and the new grade will be calculated in the overall GPA. If a student takes precalculus on permit at a non-CUNY institution, only the original grade will be calculated in the overall GPA.

      • If a student has more than one repeatable precalculus grade and subsequently earns a grade of C or better in the course, the previous grades will be deleted from the calculation of the GPA, subject to the 16-credit limit.

      • If a student earns less than a C grade when the course is repeated or has exceeded the 16 credit limit, both grades earned will be factored into the student's GPA.

      • The cumulative GPA calculated on the basis of this policy is to be used for purposes of retention and graduation from the College and the admission to and continuance in a major or specialization. It will not be used to calculate the GPA for graduation honors or the Dean’s List.

The second part of the proposal is to include a precalculus grade prerequisite in MTH 2205 and MTH 2207

Effective fall 2018, the prerequisites for MTH 2205 and MTH 2207 are as follows:

        MTH 2205 Applied Calculus    Prerequisite: MTH 2003 or MTH 2009 with a grade of C- or better.

        MTH 2207 Applied Calculus and Matrix Applications    Prerequisite: Placement or grade of C- or better in MTH 2000 or 2001 or the equivalent.
