Mathematics Minor


Requirements for the Minor


The mathematics minor requires the student to take six graded courses: MATH 031 PZ , MATH 032 PZ MATH 100 PZ , a course in Linear Algebra and two additional courses (which cannot include courses designed to prepare students for calculus) in Mathematics, at least one of which must be upper-division (numbered 100 or above), to be chosen by the student in consultation with a member of the Mathematics faculty. Students who satisfy the requirement for Calculus II and/or III by placement or by AP credit may constitute the 6 required letter-graded courses by additional mathematics courses (which cannot include courses designed to prepare students for calculus), by computer science courses, or by courses with mathematics prerequisites in science, economics, or history and philosophy of mathematics.

In addition, students must attend the Mathematics Colloquium at least four times and provide a written summary of the attended talks to a member of the Mathematics faculty.
