# Mathematics Minor

A minor in Mathematics can be developed to complement a major program in any major, with a focus on pure and applied mathematical theory.

## Course Requirements

Course | Title | Quarter Hours |
---|---|---|

Select one of the following three-course Calculus sequences: | 12-18 | |

Sequence One | ||

MAT 151 | CALCULUS II | |

MAT 152 | CALCULUS III | |

Sequence Two | ||

MAT 147 | CALCULUS WITH INTEGRATED PRECALCULUS I | |

MAT 148 | CALCULUS WITH INTEGRATED PRECALCULUS II | |

MAT 149 | CALCULUS WITH INTEGRATED PRECALCULUS III | |

Sequence Three | ||

MAT 160 | CALCULUS FOR MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE MAJORS I | |

MAT 161 | CALCULUS FOR MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE MAJORS II | |

MAT 162 | CALCULUS FOR MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE MAJORS III | |

Sequence Four | ||

MAT 170 | CALCULUS FOR LIFE SCIENCES I | |

MAT 171 | CALCULUS FOR LIFE SCIENCES II | |

MAT 172 | CALCULUS III WITH DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS | |

Sequence Five ^{1} | ||

MAT 155 | SUMMER CALCULUS I | |

MAT 156 | SUMMER CALCULUS II | |

MAT 260 | MULTIVARIABLE CALCULUS I | 4 |

MAT 262 | LINEAR ALGEBRA | 4 |

or MAT 220 | APPLIED LINEAR ALGEBRA | |

Choose one course from the following list: | 4 | |

MAT 215 | INTRODUCTION TO MATHEMATICAL REASONING | |

MAT 304 | DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS | |

MAT 348 | APPLIED STATISTICAL METHODS | |

MAT 351 | PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS I | |

MAT 384 | MATHEMATICAL MODELING | |

MAT 385 | NUMERICAL ANALYSIS I |

^{1} | This Calculus sequence is offered only during the summer, in two 6-credit hour courses. Students successfully completing MAT 131, MAT 147, MAT 150 or MAT 160 should enroll in MAT 155; students who successfully complete MAT 148, MAT 151 or MAT 161 should enroll in MAT 156. Students who successfully complete MAT 155 may enroll in either MAT 151 or MAT 156. |

Business students who have an exceptionally strong background in calculus, including calculus of trig functions, may be permitted by the chair to substitute MAT 135 and MAT 136 for MAT 150.

In general, mathematics students cannot earn a minor in the same academic program as their major. A minor in Mathematics, however, can be earned if the student's major is one of the following:

- BS Actuarial Science
- BA Data Science
- BA/BS Mathematics, with a concentration in Statistics
