I would like to see:
The Minor(s)
 MATHEMATICS MINOR FOR LETTERS AND SCIENCE OR BUSINESS STUDENTS
Recommended for students who are majoring in fields related to
Mathematics such as Business, Computer Science, Economics, Natural Sciences,
Physical Sciences.
 Required Units (crs.): 25 minimum
 Required Courses:
 Mathematics: Core Courses
 Mathematics: Mathematics 301
 Electives: Choose courses from the following to meet
the 25 credit minimum requirements: Mathematics 302, 331, 334,
346, 347, 348, 349, 355, 371, 375, and 376
 OPERATIONS RESEARCH MINOR
Recommended for students who are majoring in Business, Computer
Science, Physical Sciences or similar fields.
 Required Units (crs.): 26 minimum
 Required Courses:
 Mathematics: Mathematics 171, 172, 222, 256 and
301.
 Business: Business Administration 341, 342, 441
or 449.
 Electives: Sufficient courses from the Mathematics
Department's offerings to meet the Minimum Unit (cr.) Requirement.
 MATHEMATICS MINOR FOR SECONDARY EDUCATION LICENSURE
Recommended for students who have had four years of high school
mathematics, are earning a degree in Secondary Education, and are planning
to teach mathematics or a related field.
 Required Units (crs.): 25 minimum
 Required Courses:
 Mathematics Minor (Secondary Education): Mathematics
171, 172, 222, 256, 201 or 301, 331 and 334.
 Electives: One additional course in Algebra (Mathematics
346, 347, 348, 349) or Geometry or Probability/Statistics or Computing Mathematics
selected from department offerings.
 MATHEMATICS MINOR FOR ELEMENTARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOL LICENSURE
Recommended for students who have had four years of high school
Mathematics, are earning a degree in Elementary Education, and are interested
in teaching Elementary or Middle School Mathematics (Certification K3/16/18/59).
 Required Units (crs.): 24 minimum
 Required Courses:
 Mathematics: Mathematics 110, 211, 217, 490;
plus three courses from: Mathematics 317, 319, 413, and 415.
 Comment:
Since the upper level courses are necessarily offered at regularly
"spaced times,'' it is important that interested students declare
the minor no later than their sophomore year. Courses numbered above
300 all have Mathematics 104 or equivalent as a prerequisite. Students
who place into Mathematics 104 must complete it but that unit (cr.)
does not apply to the minor.
 STATISTICS MINOR
Recommended for students who are in the areas of Business, Computer
Science, Education, Mathematics, Natural Science, Physical Science and Social
Science.
 Required Units (crs.): 27 minimum
 Required Courses:
 Mathematics: Mathematics 171, 172, 201 or
301, 222, 302 and at least two courses from: Mathematics 304, 305, 381, 385,
and 386.
 Electives: Sufficient courses to meet the Minimum
Unit (cr.) Requirement selected from these studies:
 Business: Business Administration 341, 342, or
460.
 Economics: Economics 473.
 Mathematics: Mathematics 304, 305, 381, 385,
386, 401, or 402

Comment:
Mathematics majors with an emphasis other than statistics may earn a
minor in statistics but they must have a minimum of 52 units (crs.)
in Mathematics and Statistics approved by the Statistics advisor.
