If you have declared (or are intending to declare) a Mathematics major, a Mathematics and Statistics major or a Mathematics minor, you should meet as soon as possible with the Chief Departmental Advisor, Laura Anderson, to schedule a meeting. At that point, you will be assigned an academic advisor in the Department of Mathematics, with whom you can meet and correspond as often as needed or desired.
For the Statistics major or minor, you should contact the Chief Departmental Advisor in the Department of Statistics, Dr. Tom Fisher, to schedule a meeting. For the Actuarial Science minor, you should contact Dr. Tatjana Miljkovic to schedule a meeting. You will then be assigned an appropriate advisor.
If you have not yet declared a major or if your major is in the College of Arts and Science, please visit the College advising page to set up a meeting with an advisor there.
During their first two years of study, most MTH / STA majors complete a
Students may begin the statistics sequence (STA 301, 401, …) prior to Calculus III but will need Calculus III and either MTH 222 or MTH 231 for higher-level STA courses. An advisor can help you choose additional courses in mathematics or statistics beyond the 200 level.
It is a good idea to take a computer programming course, such as CSE 174, in your first year. That course will satisfy part of the Related Courses Requirement. Other electives should be carefully selected to apply toward the Foundation part of the Miami Plan, your divisional requirements, and/or to start a base for meeting the remainder of the Related Courses requirement.
Each year a number of students qualify for a head start in our programs by having passed an Advanced Placement Examination of the Educational Testing Service in calculus or statistics. The following table gives details:
|Exam||Score||AP Credit||Starting Course|
|Statistics||3, 4 or 5||STA 261||
STA 363 (Statistical Methods Minor) or
STA 401 (after completing the Calc II prerequisite)
|Calculus AB||3||MTH 151||MTH 249 (or drop back to MTH 153, see Note 2)|
|Calculus AB||4 or 5||MTH 151||MTH 249 or 249.H|
|Calculus BC||3||MTH 151, 251||MTH 252 (or drop back to MTH 249, see Note 3)|
|Calculus BC||4 or 5||MTH 151, 251||MTH 252 or 222.T/331.T (See Note 5)|
If you are unable to register for a Mathematics (MTH) course at Miami University, but you wish to place your name on a list in case a place in that course becomes available, you will need to submit a Registration Override Request (ROR) This is a new procedure (starting Fall 2019) which replaces the Math department's old force add request form.
