Minor in math

  1. Aug 10, 2008 #1
    I am currently an electrical engineering major at Fenn College of Engineering. I passes calculus 1 with b and calculus 2 with b and calculus 3 with a and linear algebra with A. Also took pre calculus if that counts. How much more math I need for minor besides differential equations? Also is that class difficult ?

    It depends on your school. For example, in my school, none of those classes would count towards a math minor. You need 18 hours of 3000 level or higher math classes, and all of the classes you mentioned are 1000 or 2000 level.

    As Monocles said, it really depends on your school. For example, for my math minor I need to take 5 classes (15 hours) out of my curriculum, which happened to be PDEs, Non-Linear Dynamics, Complex Variables, Probability, and Analysis I. Contact the person at your college who is in charge of the math minor program, or contact your adviser if you don't know what that is, and ask him/her about it.
