Department Overview
The Mathematics and Physics Department offers a rigorous and wellbalanced program of courses leading to a bachelor of science degree with majors in mathematics and physics. Mathematics is of central importance in the sciences. In fact, mathematics has been called the language of science. This applies not only to the physical and biological sciences but increasingly to the social, managerial and behavioral sciences as well. Much of mathematics has been developed to meet the needs of the areas of human knowledge that it serves. In addition to its service role in other areas, mathematics occupies a place of its own in our intellectual heritage. From ancient Greece to our own times, people have been drawn to the elegant structure.
The physics major is primarily intended for students who wish to pursue graduate work in physics or related areas, careers in higher education, or careers in technologybased industry.
The mathematics and physics faculty are active in research. Current areas of research interest include astrophysics, computational physics, condensed matter theory, manybody theory, mathematical physics, quantum field theory, and statistical mechanics. Students majoring in mathematics or physics have an excellent opportunity to get involved in ongoing research projects. In the recent past, students have appeared as coauthors on a number of scientific publications in research and teaching journals.
In addition to mathematics and physics majors, the department hosts an articulated preengineering/engineering program with the University of WisconsinMilwaukee.

Teacher Education Licensure in Mathematics and Physics
Students interested in becoming teachers will need to complete an approved program pathway to a Wisconsin initial educator license. The approved pathway to this license is a structured collaboration between the mathematics and physics department and the Institute of Professional Educator Development (IPED).
The requirements for teacher licensure are specific and therefore students must meet with the IPED Adviser to coordinate the major and teacher education curriculum. It is very important to contact the IPED adviser at 2625952180 or Molinaro D111 as soon as possible. Students are required to seek advising each semester from both the IPED Adviser and the mathematics and physics department liaison to the teacher education program. Complete information about the Teacher Education Program can be found on the IPED website at: http://www.uwp.edu/learn/ departments/educatordevelopment/index.cfm
Mathematics with a Second Major

Placement Examination
Mathematics Placement is by UW Mathematics Placement Test scores. It is possible as well to take a placement test. This examination serves as a guide for placement in mathematics courses. Placement in mathematics courses is usually made at the following levels:
 MATH 10, MATH 15, MATH 102 , MATH 103 or MATH 111 – students with fewer than three years of high school math, or inadequate background, or who have been out of school for an extended period of time.
 MATH 112, MATH 113 or MATH 114 – students with three years of high school mathematics.
 MATH 221 – students with four years of high school mathematics.
Program Level Outcomes for Physics
 Student should be scientifically literate in the foundations of physics, both theoretical and practical.
 Students should be able to take data in a lab environment or computer simulation, analyze it, present it coherently in a written format and draw from the analysis a convincing conclusion based upon the principles of the scientific method.
 Students will master the tools of modern physics; mathematical, computational, and experimental.
 The student should be able to orally present in a professional, lucid manner, the results and analysis of an experiment or research and effectively answer questions on the topic of their work in a scientific seminar format
 The student is expected to have mastered the methods of modern scientific exploration at an appropriate level, and engage in a continual selfexamination for any deficiencies, and take advantage of opportunities to rectify them. The goal is to be fully prepared for the Physics GRE exam.

Articulation Agreement
UWMILWAUKEE ENGINEERING PROGRAM
The articulated preengineering/engineering agreement with University of WisconsinMilwaukee (UWM) creates a curriculum plan so the students at the University of WisconsinParkside (UWP) may complete and transfer coursework applicable to the first two years of the UWM electrical and mechanical engineering majors in the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS), and provides guaranteed transfer to students who complete all of the articulated preengineering courses and the UWM admission requirements.
Admission Requirements and the Highlights of the Program
 Students complete the first two years of course work (6184 credits) at UWParkside, then continue at UWM for a degree in electrical engineering or mechanical engineering in the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) with junior standing.
 The transfer with junior standing is guaranteed for students who complete all of the articulated preengineering courses with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above; and the UWM and CEAS admission requirements.
 All UWP university admission requirements apply. Admission into the preengineering program requires placement into Math 221 or successful completion of the prerequisites for Math 221.
 During the first 6184 c edits of study (the first two years), students will be primarily advised by UWP faculty but will also have a coadvisor from UWM to facilitate smooth transition to UWM CEAS.
 Students will pay tuition and appropriate fees to the university at which they are enrolled.
 Students admitted under this agreement will be guided by UWM and UWP catalog year of their admission to UWP.
 Students who voluntarily withdraw or do not meet the requirement to continue in the program, may transfer any of their earned UWP/UWM credits into another degree program subject to the credit transfer equivalencies and requirements.
