IV. Requirements for a Major

 

Major Requirements

 

Math 1101-1102-2101—Calculus I-II-III

Math 2111—Linear Algebra

Math 2301 2202—Mathematical Perspectives

Math 3221—Analysis

Math 3231—Abstract Algebra I

Math 4901—Senior Seminar

Stat 2611—Mathematical Statistics

one course numbered Math x4xx

a minimum of 5 additional credits in Math or Stat courses at the level 2xxx or above

Students also are required to take a course with significant mathematical applications outside the mathematics discipline. This course must be approved by the mathematics discipline. Courses which meet this requirement are listed on the internet at the url http://www.morris.umn.edu/academic/math/app-require.html

 

No required courses may be taken S-N. Required courses may not be taken S-N unless offered S-N only. Up to 6 credits of coursework with a grade of D may be used to meet the major requirements if offset by an equivalent number of credits of A or B.

 

Majors should begin with Math 1011—Pre-Calculus or Math 1101—Calculus I. Students with questions about placement are encouraged to discuss them with members of the mathematics faculty. Students planning to pursue graduate work in mathematics should complete:

 

Recommended courses for students planning to pursue graduate work in pure mathematics are:

 

Math 4201—Complex Analysis

Math 4211—Real Analysis

Math 4221—Topology

Math 4231—Abstract Algebra II

Math 4241—Number Theory

 

The recommended electives for students planning to work or pursue graduate work in applied mathematics or related field are:

 

Math 2401—Differential Equations

Math 3401—Operations Research

Math 3411—Discrete and Combinatorial Mathematics

Math 4401—Numerical Methods with Applications in Mathematical Modeling

Math 4450—Variable Topics in Applied Mathematics

 

Students interested in applied mathematics can design an area of concentration in consultation with the applied mathematics faculty. It is suggested that the designed academic program in applied mathematics include:

 

Math 2401—Differential Equations

Math 3401—Operations Research

Math 3411—Discrete and Combinatorial Mathematics

Math 4401— Numerical Methods with Applications in Mathematical Modeling

Math 4450—Variable Topics in Applied Mathematics

 

Students designing their area of concentration in applied mathematics are encouraged to take related courses in either the

physical and natural sciences or the social sciences. These related courses must be approved by the applied mathematics faculty.

 

V. Requirements for a Minor

 

Minor Requirements

 

Math 1101-1102—Calculus I-II

Math 2111—Linear Algebra

a minimum of 12 additional credits in Math courses at the 2xxx level or above in at least two of the following numbering systems x2xx, x4xx, x5xx, or Stat 2611

 

Required courses may be taken S-N, but it is not recommended. Required courses may not be taken S-N unless offered S-N only. Up to 6 credits of coursework with a grade of D may be used to meet the minor requirements if offset by an equivalent number of credits of A or B.
