Elective Course (3 Units)

One 3-unit MATHXXXX course, excluding all non-letter grade courses MATH3095-6, MATH3495-7, MATH3097, and MATH4998-9. The GE capstone GCAP3005 or GCAP3017 can be double-counted towards this 3-unit elective course requirement, and the outstanding 3 units can be made up by taking any 3 units of free elective.

  2. Students of Faculty of Science are not allowed to use MATH1025 Introduction to Mathematics and Statistics to fulfill the Minor requirement. They are required to take another elective course.
  3. BSc COMPUTER SCI students are not allowed to use MATH1205 and MATH2005 to fulfill the Minor requirement. They are required to take another elective course.
