It is very hard to find the average salary for someone with a bachelor's degree in mathematics. Only starting salary can be found, because generally what you find is the average salary for mathematician and it takes PhD in math to become a mathematician.

The latest data as of May 2006, shows that the average salary of mathematician is $86,930 an year

So based on the starting salary of someone with bachelor degree, you can add at least $15,000 to $20,000 an year to get average salary.

So based on my estimate the average salary for someone with bachelor's degree in mathematics maybe in the range of $60,000 to $70,000 an year.
