You may earn a minor in mathematics by completing at least six courses in mathematics and statistics. Your selection of courses should be appropriate for your major, and your program for a minor must be approved by the department's Program Review Committee. Two calculus courses must be included. College algebra or trigonometry courses are excluded; one computer science course may be substituted for a mathematics or statistics course. You must have a grade of C or better in all courses included in your minor, with at most one C- and a minimum of 2.3 GPA. At least six of the credits must be earned as resident credit at IPFW in courses numbered 200 or above.
The granting of a math minor is not automatic, a student must apply by submitting a signed paper form. The form can be printed out (PDF link above) or picked up in the Kettler 200 office. The form's instructions include a request for an IPFW myBLUEprint printout (or unofficial transcript), and the documents may be given directly to the Program Review Committee's Chair, currently Professor Safwan Akkari, or dropped off in Dr. Akkari's mailbox in Kettler 200.
After the Committee's review and approval of a program of six courses, the student will receive a paper letter in the mail from the Department of Mathematical Sciences, and the math minor status should appear in the student's electronic records (myBLUEprint).
