Mathematics Department Minors


Minor in Applied Mathematics

Objectives:

This minor is designed to allow a student not majoring in mathematics to learn techniques of applied mathematics and to be exposed to a variety of mathematical modeling techniques.  Students are expected to have completed one of the calculus sequences MATH 131/132 or HONR 131/132 to be eligible.

Competencies, Knowledge or Skills to be achieved:

A student who completes this minor will have a sound foundation in techniques of linear algebra and differential equations, and will have utilized these techniques in at least one area of application.

 

Structure of the Minor:

  1. Required courses:  (10 credit hours)

MATH 234 – Applied Engineering Mathematics I (every semester, shared with CIVL, ELEC, MECH & PHYS)

MATH 240 – Linear Algebra (every spring) or 

                     MATH 206 – Discrete Mathematics (every fall, share with CS & COME) 

MATH 470 – Mathematical Models and Applications (every fall) or

              approved MATH 490 – Advanced Topics in Mathematics

 

  1. Electives (6 credit hours)
