## Add a Minor in Mathematics

A minor in mathematics requires a minimum of 15 semester hours of credit earned in Department of Mathematics courses with the following restrictions.

- At least 12 of these 15 semester must be post-calculus MATH courses offered by the Department of Mathematics, or an equivalent transfer course.
- At least 9 of the 12 semester hours in post-calculus math courses must be taken at the University of Iowa. No more than one transfer course can be counted toward the post-calculus requirement.
- Course work counted toward the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass.
- Students must maintain a grade-point average (GPA) of at least 2.00 in all courses for the minor and in all UI courses for the minor.
- No courses from other departments are accepted toward the minor unless the course is cross-listed with a MATH prefix.
- The post-calculus courses must be chose to avoid duplication and regression with the core math courses, especially when the engineering math courses are considered.

## Additional requirements and minor planning resources

Students who have taken the engineering calculus sequence of MATH:1560, 2550, 2560, and 3550 (22M:32, 33, 34, and 37 ) may satisfy the minor requirements by taking one additional 3 or 4 semester hour course with the following restrictions.

- The additional 3 or 4 semester hour MATH course must be numbered MATH:2150 or MATH:3720 or higher,
**except**MATH:3750, 3995-3997, 4010, and 4020.- This corresponds to 22M courses numbered 050 or higher except 22M:100, 104, 105, 109, 110, and 196-199.

- At least four of the five courses MATH:1560, 2550, 2560, 3550 and the additional course (of the previous line) must be taken at the University of Iowa. No more than one transfer course can be counted toward the post-calculus requirement.
- Substituting a 3 semester hour post-calculus math course (prefix MATH) for any of these—MATH:1560, MATH:2550, MATH:2560, or MATH:3550—is allowed as long as there is no regression or duplication.
- The total number of credits earned through MATH courses must be at least 15.
- Course work counted toward the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass.
- Students must maintain a grade-point average (GPA) of at least 2.00 in all courses for the minor and in all UI courses for the minor.
- No courses from other departments are accepted toward the Minor in Mathematics unless the course is cross-listed with a MATH prefix.
- The post-calculus courses must be chosen to avoid duplication and regression with the core math courses and the engineering math courses.

The post-calculus courses in mathematics are those MATH courses numbered 2000 or higher except MATH:3700, 3750, 3995-3997, 4010, and 4020. In the 3-digit numbering system, post-calculus courses are 22M courses numbered 027 and above except 22M:031, 032, 081, 104, 105, 109, 110, and 196-199.

The post-calculus courses must be chosen to avoid duplication and regression with the core math courses, particularly when the engineering math courses are considered.

The schedule of course offerings indicates which courses are post-calculus courses and which semesters they are offered to help with academic planning.

The following are examples of lists of courses that qualify for a Minor in Mathematics, provided that at most one is a transfer course.

#### Traditional calculus sequence example

- MATH:1850
- MATH:1860
- MATH:2700
- MATH:2850
- MATH:3600
- Plus one or more 3 or 4 semester hour MATH post-calculus course

**Note:** In the three-digit numbering system, the sequence is 22M:025, 026, 027, 028, 100.

#### Engineering calculus sequence example

- MATH:1550
- MATH:1560
- MATH:2550
- MATH:2560
- MATH:3550
- Plus one or more 3 or 4 semester hour MATH post-calculus course

**Note:** In the three-digit numbering system, the sequence is 22M:031, 032, 033, 034, 037.
