# Mathematics Minor

### Mathematics Minor

• Math 206  Calculus I: Differentiation
• Math 207  Calculus II: Integration
• Math 208  Calculus III: Sequences, Series and Coordinate Systems
• Math 209  Calculus IV: Several Variables
• Math 255  Introduction to Matrix Theory

Upper Division Electives (12 units).
Select three upper division mathematics courses, with adviser approval.

### For Biology Major:

Note that Math 206 and 207 count for both major and minor. Do not take Math 230 instead of Math 207.

For upper division electives, the following courses are recommended:

• [Math 310 Introduction to Computer Algebra Systems]
• Math 325 Mathematical Notation and Proof
• Math 401 Differential Equations (has Math 325 with grade of C as a prerequisite)
• Math 474 Theory of Probability
• Math 475 Introduction to Mathematical Statistics (has Math 474 as a prerequisite)
• Math 484 Graph Theory (Note: Has Math 325 and Math 248 as prerequisites)
• Math 320 History of Mathematics - this is a course that is easy in terms of prereqs, but does not really help with math prep for grad school. Should we list such a course? In this case, since there are not many classes that do not require Math 325, I would list it.

Possible choices:

• [310], 325, 401, 474
• [310], 320, 474, 475
• 325, 474, 484 (& 248 or instructor consent)

### For Physics Major:

Note: Math 206-209 double-count for both major and minor. Some of the other courses can count as electives in sciences  check with physics person. Catalog is vague  4-14 units

• Math 325 Mathematical Notation and Proof
• Math 401 Differential Equations (has Math 325 with grade of C as a prerequisite)
• MATH 402A Advanced Mathematics I for Engineers and Physicists
• MATH 402B Advanced Mathematics II for Engineers and Physicists
• MATH 403 Partial Differential Equations
• MATH 410 Vector Analysis
• MATH 411 Tensor Analysis (has Math 410 as prerequisite)

Possible sequences:

• 402A, 402B, 410
• 325, 401, 403
• 402A, 402B, 403

### For Computer Science Major:

Note that Math 206-208, Math 248 and Math 255 double-count for both major and minor.

• Math 325 Mathematical Notation and Proof
• Math 401 Differential Equations (has Math 325 with grade of C as a prerequisite)
• MATH 410 Vector Analysis
• Math 420 Logic (has Math 325 with grade of C as a prerequisite)
• Math 470 Numerical Analysis I
• Math 471 Numerical Analysis II (Has math 215 as prereq)
• Math 474 Theory of Probability
• Math 475 Introduction to Mathematical Statistics (has Math 474 as a prerequisite)
• Math 484 Graph Theory (Note: Has Math 325 as prerequisite)

Possible sequences:

• 325, 474, 484
• 410, 470, 474
• 325, 420, 484

### For Chemistry/BioChemistry Major:

Note that Math 206-209 double-count for both major and minor. For biochem majors, Math 410 can double count in minor and major  take 401 instead of Math 215.

• Math 325 Mathematical Notation and Proof
• Math 401 Differential Equations (has Math 325 with grade of C as a prerequisite)
• Math 410 Vector Analysis
• Math 474 Theory of Probability
• Math 475 Introduction to Mathematical Statistics (has Math 474 as a prerequisite)
• Math 484 Graph Theory (Note: Has Math 325 and Math 248 as prerequisites)

Biochem sequence:

• 410, 474, 475
• 325, 401, 474

Chem sequence:

• 410, 474, 475
