Placement Exams Coming Up

Update Regarding On-campus Math Placement Exams: March 18, 2020 around 12:05 pm HST

We will not be holding any on-campus exams until further notice. Hence, the "Reservations" link is now missing from our website. We will notify students who have already signed up for the on-campus Exams of such, and of what their options will be. The notifications will not be emailed until tomorrow, however, as we are still discussing the alternative options (besides ProctorU) and of what to do to help students. Please keep checking the Placement Exam webpage (http://math.hawaii.edu/wordpress/placement-exam/) for updates. *************************************************************************

Academic Minor in Mathematics

Math Minor Requirements (in general):

  • MATH 243 or 253A
  • 12 credit hours in mathematics courses numbered above 300, including:
    • 3 credit hours in a writing-intensive mathematics course
    • 6 credit hours in courses numbered above 400

More specific Math Minor requirements:

  • If Math 243 is a requirement for your major but you did not take Math 253A, you must:
    • complete Math 244
    • complete 12  credits in mathematics courses numbered above 300 that include:
      • 3 credit hours in writing-intensive mathematics courses
      • 6 credit hours in courses 400 and above (excluding Math 480)
  • If both Math 243 and Math 244 are requirements for your major, or if you took Math 253A for your major requirement, you must:
    • complete 15 credits in mathematics courses numbered above 300 that include:
      • 3 credit hours in writing-intensive mathematics courses
      • 6 credit hours in courses 400 and above (excluding Math 480)

All required courses must be completed with a grade of “C” or better. Courses used to fulfill core or major requirements cannot be counted for the minor. Exceptions are:

  • Engineering students may count their Engineering mathematics electives and technical elective (if taken in mathematics) and Math 302 and 307 towards a minor in mathematics.
  • BA Physics, BS Physics, and BS Astrophysics students may count their Math 307 or 311 major requirement towards a minor in mathematics.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

  • The requirements include work at the senior level and allow the choice of specific courses which best complement work in the student’s major field.
  • Students who are interested in minoring in mathematics are urged to consult a departmental advisor early in their academic career and schedule a Minor Declaration Appointment.
  • Prior to graduation (at least one semester in advance), a Certification of Academic Minor form should be completed in consultation with a departmental advisor.
