This would be the perfect question to ask the undergraduate advisor of the appropriate program. Give their office a call and set up a meeting with both of the advisors.
In addition, take a look at these professional organizations, they should give you some sort of idea about what mathematicians and computer scientists do:

A little background reading before your meetings:
American Mathematical Society: http://www.ams.org/
Mathematical Association of America: http://www.maa.org

American Association for Artificial Intelligence: http://www.aaai.org/
Association for Computing Machinery: http://info.acm.org/
IEEE Computer Society: http://www.computer.org/portal/site/ieeecs/index.jsp
Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics: http://www.siam.org/

Double majoring is a really good idea, but imat the university if the chicago, and I'm allready stressed out a lot with just 3 classes.
Trying to double major would be extremely difficult.
