Minor in Mathematics

See http://bulletin.miamioh.edu/arts-science/mathematics-minor/

(21 semester hours)

For information, contact the Department of Mathematics, 123 Bachelor Hall (513-529-5818).

This minor provides students with an increased understanding of, and competence in, mathematics. Building on a base of calculus and linear algebra, already required for many majors, the program leads students through a theoretical course, an applications course, and at least one additional elective in advanced mathematics.

A minimum 2.00 GPA is required for all courses in the minor. All courses must be taken for a grade, not credit/no-credit. This minor is not available to majors in mathematics, mathematics and statistics, or mathematics education.

Program Requirements

Choose ONE of the following:

MTH 249 Calculus II (5) or MTH 249H Honors Calculus II (5)

MTH 251 Calculus II (4)

Choose ONE of the following:

MTH 252 Calculus III (4) or MTH 252H Honors Calculus III (4)

Choose ONE of the following:

MTH 222 Introduction to Linear Algebra (3)

MTH 222T Introduction to Linear Algebra (Honors) (2) and MTH 331T Proof: Introduction to Higher Mathematics (Honors) (3)

At least 10 semester hours in mathematics courses at 300 level or above, including:

At least one of these: MTH 411, 421, 441, or 451

At least one of these: MTH 347, 432, 435, 436, 437, 438, 439, 447, 453 or 495
