Minor In Mathematics

Students are required to fulfill at least 15 AU from MH courses (excluding MH1401/MH1402/MH2401, MH4900, MH4901/MH4903, MH8xxx, and MH9xxx), of which at least 6 AU should be MH2xxx/3xxx/4xxx.

Recommended Combination of Courses for the Minor:

A. For students who donothave calculus and/or linear algebra in the curriculum of their major, the following combination is highly recommended:

2 courses of calculus (MH1100 and MH1101) 1 course of linear algebra (MH1200 or MH2802) 2 courses from any any MH2xxx/3xxx/4xxx courses (excluding MH4900, and MH4901/MH4903).## B. For students whose major curriculum

already includescalculus and/or linear algebra similar to MH1100/MH1101/MH1200 or MH1802/MH1803/MH2802 (e.g., some engineering programmes), it is recommended that they choosecourses other than MH1100/MH1101/MH1200for the fulfillment of the minor requirements.

C. Only for students in the C N Yang Scholars programme:

- The following courses do not count towards a minor in Mathematics: MH1100, MH1101, MH1200, MH1201, and MH2100.

- The requirement of at least 6 AU from MAS2xx/MAS3xx/MAS4xx is dropped.
