Area 1 (Choose one course) 3 credits


Area 2 (Choose one course) 3 credits


Area 3 (Choose two course) 6-7 credits

Notes


No substitutions are allowed.

A course can only be used in one area.

ALL COURSES FOR THIS MINOR LISTED BELOW MUST BE TAKEN AT PURDUE UNIVERSITY

*For many students, MA 26500  may not be adequate preparation for upper division mathematics classes. Students planning a Mathematics Minor should consider taking MA 35100  instead. Only students with a very firm grasp of the MA 26500  material [and a grade of B- or better] should contemplate taking MA 35300  without MA 35100  

** MA 26600  with at least a “B-” can be used in place of MA 36600  [only one of MA 26600 /MA 36600 /MA 30300 /or MA 30400  can be used in Area 3]. MA 26200  will not be accepted for the minor.
