Mathematics Minor

Effective Winter 2014

An academic minor in Mathematics is not open to students with any major in Mathematics. However, a student who graduated with an academic minor in Mathematics may return to complete a major in Mathematics. The additional course work used to satisfy the requirements of the major must include 12 in residence, upper-level credit hours.

 

The minor in Mathematics is designed to enable a student with a significant interest in Mathematics to deepen his/her knowledge while pursuing a major in another field. While the major will often be in a field that makes significant use of mathematics, such as a science or a quantitative social science, it may be in any area of study.

Students wishing to pursue a minor in Mathematics must develop a specific plan for its completion in consultation with an advisor. Appointments are scheduled on-line at:

www.math.lsa.umich.edu/undergrad/

Prerequisites to the Minor

One of the sequences MATH 115&116, 175&176, 185&186, or 295&296; or MATH 156. These all provide a thorough grounding in the calculus of functions of one variable. Advanced Placement credits in MATH 120 and 121 also meet the prerequisite requirement.

Requirements for the Minor

15-18 credits of courses, including either two courses from category A and three courses from category B, or one course from category A and four courses from category B. No more than one course may be elected from each of the three areas of category A. The courses in category B must be selected from exactly two of the six listed areas. A student planning to take linear algebra and differential equations should note that not all of MATH 215, 216, and 217 will count toward the minor, whereas all of MATH 215, 217, and 316 will.

All courses for the minor program must be completed with a grade of at least a C-.

Category A: Second-year courses:

  • Multivariable Calculus: MATH 215, 255, or 285
  • Linear Algebra: MATH 214, 217, 417, or 419
  • Differential Equations: MATH 216, 256, or 286

Category B: Upper-level courses:

  • Analysis/Differential Equations: MATH 316, 351, 354, 404, 450, 451, 452, 454, 555

  • Geometry/Topology: MATH 433, 490, 531
  • Applied Mathematics: MATH 354, 371, 404, 423, 425, 450, 454, 462, 463, 471, 472, 550, 563
  • Discrete Mathematics: MATH 310, 312, 389, 412, 416, 425, 465, 475, 481, 493 (or prior to Fall 2012, 512), 561, 566, 567, 582
  • Financial/Actuarial Mathematics: MATH 423, 424, 520, 523, 524
