Mathematics Minor


The Mathematics Minor provides a strong background in mathematics for students majoring in some other discipline.

Requirements for the Minor (12-13 credits)


  • Before undertaking this minor, the student must establish the prerequisites for the required minor courses.
  • ALL COURSES REQUIRED FOR THIS MINOR MUST BE TAKEN AT PURDUE UNIVERSITY
  • To qualify for the minor, courses must be completed with a C- or better (pass/no pass grade option is not allowed for the minor).
  • The three courses used for Areas 2 and 3 cannot all be from the same group  

Area 1 - Choose One (3 credits)


Area 2 - Choose One (3 credits)


The three courses used for Areas 2 and 3 cannot all be from the same group  

Area 3 - Choose Two (6-7 credits)


The three courses used for Areas 2 and 3 cannot all be from the same group  

Differential Equations


Only one differential equations course can be used in AREA 3.

Notes


  • No substitutions are allowed.
  • A course can only be used in one area.
  • *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 35301  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  can be used in Area 3). MA 26200  will not be accepted for the minor.
