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.
