Introductory Sequence: Take the following six courses:

  • MATH 151 - Calculus I (or equivalent)
  • MATH 152 - Calculus II
  • MATH 241 - Linear Algebra
  • MATH 253 - Calculus III
  • MATH 260 - Discrete Structures
  • COMP 160 - Fundamentals of Computer Science

Breadth Requirement: Choose three of the following four courses:

  • MATH 301 - Advanced Calculus
  • MATH 311 - Introduction to Modern Algebra
  • MATH 317 - Geometry
  • MATH 339 - Probability

Electives: Choose two additional courses from the following courses, at least one the 300 level:

  • MATH 207 - Statistics for the Sciences
  • MATH 254 - Differential Equations
  • MATH 301 - Advanced Calculus
  • MATH 311 - Introduction to Modern Algebra
  • MATH 317 - Geometry
  • MATH 323 - Numerical Analysis
  • MATH 339 - Probability
  • MATH 345 - Linear Regression and Analysis of Variance
  • MATH 350 - Topics in Mathematics

Capstone Experience: Choose one of the following capstone experiences:

  • MATH 430 - Mathematical Modeling

Required Courses for the Mathematics Minor (5 courses):

A minor in mathematics consists of two required courses and three electives at the appropriate level.

One course from the Calculus sequence:

  • MATH 151 - Calculus I
  • MATH 152 - Calculus II
  • MATH 253 - Calculus III

One course from the following two courses:

  • MATH 241 - Linear Algebra
  • MATH 260 - Discrete Structures

Electives above the 150 level to total 5 courses in mathematics. At least one elective should be at or above the 300 level. MATH 210 and 211 will not count toward the minor.
