Minor in Mathematical Sciences

In order to obtain a minor in mathematical sciences, students must complete MATH 2080 (Introduction to Ordinary Differential Equations) and 12 additional credits in MATH or STAT courses numbered 3000 or higher. Not all 3000- and 4000-level courses can be used towards the minor. Students may count only one of MATH 3650 (Numerical Methods for Engineers) or MATH 4600 (Introduction to Numerical Analysis) towards the minor.

MATH 3080 College Geometry
MATH 3150 Advanced Topics in Mathematics for Elementary Teachers
MATH 3160 Problem Solving for Mathematics Teachers
MATH 3820 Honors Seminar
MATH 3990 Creative Inquiry in Mathematical Sciences
MATH 4080 Exploration and Analysis of Secondary Mathematics
MATH 4300 Actuarial Science Seminar I
MATH 4320 Actuarial Science Seminar II
MATH 4810 Seminar in Mathematics
