Please consult Trent University's Academic Calendar for information about Trent's academic regulations and degree requirements. The 2002-2003 Calendar is the official source for the information given below.

The curriculum in Mathematics has been designed to accommodate a wide variety of interests in both pure and applied mathematics. All students in the Mathematics program must take core courses in calculus and algebra. Most of the remaining courses have been divided into three categories corresponding to the major areas of Mathematics. The intent is to provide students with both breadth and depth in Mathematics while aallowing them to pursue those areas that interest them.

## Notes

A standing of at least C- (60%) in a Mathematics course at the 100-level is a prerequisite for all upper level Mathematics courses. For specific prerequisites, see individual course descriptions.

Mathematics 206His considered equivalent to a 300-level course in order to satisfy the University requirement for at least seven credits beyond the 200-level in the Honours program and at least four in the General program.Students who have fulfilled the requirements for a single-major Honours degree in another subject may apply to the Registrar's Office for a minor in Mathematics, if they have met the requirements for a joint-major General degree (see below).

The department maintains a website with (hopefully!) up-to-date information at

Mathematics110 is the required introductory course for the B.Sc. in Mathematics.A standing of C- (60%) or higher is required in a course if it is to serve a prerequisite for another course in the program.

The following core courses are required of all students in the Mathematics program:

Mathematics110, 135H, 200, and 235H.Most other courses in Mathematics are divided into three categories. Some courses appear in more than one category, but no course may fulfil more than one category requirement. For specific stream requirements for the major, see below.

The following courses do not fulfill a category requirement:

Mathematics280, 380, 390, 391H, 490, 491H, and 495.Final decisions on fourth-year courses are dependent on student interest and availability of instructors.

An information meeting concerning upper level courses in Mathematics will be arranged in the Winter session.
