This is a *very* common, but very subjective, question. Different students have different opinions on what makes a good teacher. You should start by talking with some of your peers: find out who they like and dislike, and (importantly) *why*. You can also consult past FCQ results for information.

If you declared the Math minor before Fall 2012, the requirement is to take *at least one* of Calculus III and MATH 2001. It is up to you whether you take one or both of these classes. Do keep in mind that taking both of these classes will mean you have fulfilled the prerequisites for a wider variety of upper division Math courses than just taking one, and so will open up more options.

If you declare the Math minor in or after the Fall 2012 term, you are required to take *both* Calculus III and MATH 2001.

You may count the Calculus sequence taught by Applied Math (APPM 1350, 1360, and 2350) for your Calculus requirement in the Math minor program. APPM courses **will not** fulfill the Linear Algebra requirement for the Math minor.

Any other courses will only count if they are cross listed with MATH. That is, all upper division MATH courses count, even if they happen to be cross listed with another department, but nothing else counts.

Any MATH class numbered 1300 or above will fulfill the Quantitative Reasoning Requirement.

Math minors who will be graduating in the College of Arts & Sciences should visit the graduation policies & procedures page on this site.

Math minors who will be graduating in a different college or school (e.g. Engineering, Business) should check with that college /school for graduation policies. If minor paperwork needs to be completed, then you will need to set up an appointment with your Math Advisor.

The Actuarial Studies Certificate Program is designed to help students obtain the mathematical, economical, and financial expertise necessary to become actuaries --- the mathematical planners of the insurance and pension industries. The Program is an interdisciplinary effort of the Departments of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Economics, and the College of Business and Administration. For further information, please visit the Actuarial Studies web site.

No student may obtain more than nine hours of credit in mathematics courses numbered below 1300.
