## Mathematics Minor

In order to pursue a Mathematics Minor the following courses or their equivalents are prerequisites for all upper level mathematics courses:

### Minor Requirements (21 credits):

- 18 credits of mathematics (MAT)
- Up to four credits of computer science (CSC) may be counted towards the 18 credit total.
- Six upper-division (300-, 400-level) credits in mathematics (MAT) must be included in the 18 credit total.

- Three credits from one of the following sciences: Biology, Chemistry, Geology or Physics. Mathematics is often called the language of science. Therefore, a study of mathematics is not complete without experiencing its use in science.

Students who wish to satisfy the requirements for a second teaching field in Secondary education must complete 20 credits of mathematics (MAT) courses including the following courses:

- MAT-112 Introduction to Statistics (3 cr)

**or**

MAT-312 Probablily & Mathematical Statistics II (3 cr) - MAT-252 Discrete Mathematics (3 cr)
- MAT-311 Probability (3 cr)
- MAT-361 Linear Algebra (3 cr)
- MAT-370 Geometry (3 cr)

### Student Learning Outcomes

- Discover and utilize effective analysis and problem solving skills in mathematics and mathematical applications.
- Effectively express discipline-specific content and articulate broad connections among disciplines verbally, mathematically and through written works.
- Demonstrate an awareness of the role of mathematics, mathematical applications and technology in the larger community including, but not limited to: a knowledge of ethical standards, the ramifications of technological advances and activities, and the role of all mathematics in society.
