Minor in Mathematical Foundations and Methods
The Minor in Mathematical Foundations and Methods program is an undergraduate minor program that consists of mathematics courses that prepares nonB.S. Mathematics students for advanced studies in quantitativeoriented fields. It is designed to provide students with a good grasp of statistics, calculus, and discrete mathematics. It also aims to develop their ability to engage in abstract reasoning, be familiar with mathematical proofs, and have computational dexterity.
The Minor in Mathematical Foundations and Methods program aims to train students who can:
 Use mathematical tools and techniques in framing problems in the physical, life, and social sciences;
 Determine the validity of an argument using mathematical reasoning; and
 Apply mathematical knowledge and computational skills to concrete problems in the physical, life, and social sciences.

Admission into the Program
The following are requirements for admission to the Minor in Mathematical Foundations and Methods program:
 completion of Math 22 and Stat 101, or their equivalents, and at least two semesters of residency
 good academic standing with a Cumulative Weighted Average (CWA) of 2.5 or better
 endorsement by the College Secretary of the Home Unit
 acceptance by the College Secretary of the College of Science
The Institute of Mathematics shall evaluate all applications received before the beginning of the first semester of each academic year and select top applicants.
