Majors who anticipate graduate study in mathematics should take both of the two-course sequences 760-452/760-453 and 760-464/760-465 and as many of the following as are feasible: 760-342, 760-361, 760-417, 760-431, 760-441, 760-454, 760-463, and a year of French or German.
Majors who are interested in pursuing a career as an actuary are encouraged to take as many of the following courses as possible: 760-342, 760-365, 760-441, 760-442, 760-446, 760-471, 765-162, and courses in accounting and insurance offered in the College of Business and Economics.
Restriction of credit: A student may not register for a course which is a prerequisite for any other course in which credit has been received unless departmental approval is obtained. The courses 760-040 and 760-041 may not be taken by those who have successfully completed, are taking, or have had waived any course numbered 760-140 or above. A student may not register for 760-143 if 760-152 or any course beyond 760-152 has been completed unless departmental approval is obtained. A student may not receive credit for both 760-243 and 760-250, 760-243 and 760-253, or for both 760-250 and 760-253. Those who do well (A or B) in 760-243 and desire more calculus should elect 760-253 (even though credit cannot be earned for both courses). Those who do well (A or B) in 760-250 and desire more calculus should elect 760-254. Anyone anticipating a mathematics major or minor is advised to take 760-253. If a student who has completed 760-250 wants to change to a mathematics major or minor, 760-254 may be taken provided the student earned at least a B in 760-250 and has the consent of the Department Chair. A student with less than a B in 760-250 should take 760-253 even though credit will be given for only one of the courses 760-250 or 760-253. Anyone going from 760-250 to 760-254 should be aware of the trigonometry and rigor stressed in 760-253. All students seeking initial registration in any course in the calculus sequence 760-253 through 760-255 who have not completed 760-152 must consult with the Department Chair. All students seeking to count 760-250 as part of their mathematics major or minor must consult with the Department Chair.
Courses carrying "for the elementary teacher" in the title may not be applied toward a major or minor in mathematics except by students in elementary education.
Students may not receive credit for both 760-415 and 760-452. 760-375 will not count towards a mathematics major or minor in Letters and Sciences.
Courses listed only as computer science may not be used for a mathematics major or minor. Courses listed in both computer science and in mathematics may not be used for credit in both areas. 760-441/760-442 or 760-471/760-472 will satisfy the sequence requirement of the mathematics major even though 760-442 or 760-471 is used for computer science credit.
