Undergraduate math research

Here are some of our faculty members and their work providing undergrads with research experiences.
  • Monique Chyba has been working with undergraduates for many years, on drones, Covid, etc.
  • Daisuke Takagi has been working with undergraduates and plans to continue
  • Bjørn Kjos-Hanssen worked with undergraduate researchers sponsored by UROP (summer 2019) and sponsored by Decision Research Corporation (summer 2020,2021,2022)
  • Malik Younsi worked with an undergraduate researcher sponsored by UROP (summer 2019)

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:

  • At most one mathematics course at the 300+ level can be counted towards both a minor in Mathematics and a BEng from the College of Engineering.
  • 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.
