*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.
