**Required courses:**
MAS 099 Presentation AttendanceThe aim of this course is exposure to mathematics beyond the classroom curriculum. The course requirement is attendance at a minimum of six formal presentations on mathematical topics given at conferences, colloquia or symposia at a minimum of two separate events (that is, a conference or event). Presentations should have a title and abstract and may be given by faculty or students; poster sessions do not count. 0 credits. |

math readiness test. This test is administered during New
Student Advising Days for incoming students or can be taken
by arrangement with the math department (717-867-6080)
Co-requisite: MAS 113. 4 credits. |

MAS 112 Analysis IISecond semester of a calculus sequence for department majors and other students desiring a rigorous introduction to elementary calculus. Fulfills requirement: Quantitative Reasoning. Prerequisite: MAS 111; Corequisite: MAS 114. 4 credits. |

MAS 113 Introduction to Mathematical Thinking IAn introduction to college mathematics for potential mathematical science majors. Corequisite: MAS 111. 1 credit. |

MAS 114 Introduction to Mathematical Thinking IISecond semester. Introduction to college mathematics for potential mathematical science majors. Corequisite: MAS 112. 1 credit. |

MAS 202 Foundations of MathematicsIntroduction to logic, set theory and proof techniques. Prerequisites: MAS 222, ASC 281, or FIN 283. 3 credits. |

MAS 222 Linear AlgebraAn introduction to linear algebra including systems of equations, vectors spaces and linear transformations. Prerequisites: MAS 112 or MAS 261. 3 credits. |

MAS 261 Calculus IIIMultivariate calculus including partial differentiation, multiple integration, vector fields and vector functions. Prerequisites: MAS 112 or MAS 162. 3 credits. |

**Two additional intermediate courses:**
CDS 120 Introduction to Programming with PythonThis course introduces the fundamentals of computer programming using the Python programming language. Topics include: variables, types, and assignment; iteration and conditional execution; functions, modules, and structured design; complex types and data structures. 3 credits. |

Any ASC, CDS, FIN or MAS course numbered 200 or higher, excluding internships and 1-credit CDS courses.

**Four additional advanced MAS courses numbered 300 or higher, except MAS-400:**
__One of the following may be counted in the advanced category__:

ASC 482 Mathematics of Life Contingencies IIThis is the first part of a two-semester study of contingent payment models from both theoretical and applied perspectives. We look at survival distributions, present value random variables, benefits, premiums, reserves, and profit testing. ASC 481 and 482 combined cover the material on SOA exam LTAM - Long-Term Actuarial Mathematics. Prerequisites: ASC 481. 3 credits. |

FIN 382 Financial ModelingStudents will study a variety of financial models including underlying theory and computer implementation. Topics include stationary, autoregressive, moving average, mixed, and ARIMA models. Additional topics such as statistical model testing, volatility models, or portfolio optimization may be included based on time constraints and student interest. Prerequisite: ASC 385, MAS 371; and FIN 283 or ASC 386. 3 credits. |

Mathematics majors are advised to take at least one computer science course or have equivalent experience.
At the discretion of the department, the requirement of

MAS 111 Analysis IA calculus sequence for department majors and other students desiring a rigorous introduction to elementary calculus. Fulfills requirement: Quantitative Reasoning. Prerequisite: MAS 102 at LVC, or satisfactory score on the

by arrangement with the math department (717-867-6080)
Co-requisite: MAS 113. 4 credits. |

and/or 112 may be waived for students who enter the major with credit for

MAS 161 Calculus IA calculus sequence covering functions, limits, differentiation, integration and applications. Fulfills requirement: Quantitative Reasoning. Prerequisite: MAS 102 at LVC, or satisfactory score on the
math readiness test. This test is administered during New
Student Advising Days for incoming students or can be taken
by arrangement with the math department (717-867-6080). 3 credits. |

and 162. Such students will still take

MAS 113 Introduction to Mathematical Thinking IAn introduction to college mathematics for potential mathematical science majors. Corequisite: MAS 111. 1 credit. |

and 114.
