There are three undergraduate programs that lead to the degree Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics: a General Mathematics Option, an Applied Mathematics Option for those who wish to specialize in that aspect of mathematics, and a Theoretical Mathematics Option for those who expect to pursue graduate work in pure mathematics.
A fourth undergraduate program leads to the degree Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics with Computer Science; it is intended for students seriously interested in theoretical computer science.

A problem is that the creation and maintenance of comprehensive OCW requires substantial initial and ongoing investments of human labor.
Effective translation into other languages and cultural contexts requires even more investment by knowledgeable personnel.
In some cases, students will help evaluate each other's work, and may even participate in some of the teaching online.
In addition, ed X is being used as an experimental research platform to support and evaluate a variety of other new concepts in online learning.
This is one of the reasons why English is still the dominant language, and fewer open courseware options are available in other languages.
Open Course Ware, originally initiated by MIT and the Hewlett Foundation, came to China in September, 2003, when MIT and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) joined together with Beijing Jiaotong University to organize an Open Course Ware conference in Beijing.
Open Yale Courses provides free and open access to a selection of introductory courses taught by distinguished teachers and scholars at Yale University.
The aim of the project is to expand access to educational materials for all who wish to learn.
