 * A grade of C or better is required in all courses to count toward the minor.
Joint Mathematics and Computer Science Minor
The requirements are the following four courses:
 MATHUA 121 Calculus I
 MATHUA 122 Calculus II
 CSCIUA 101 Introduction to Computer Science
 CSCIUA 102 Data Structures
* Courses taken under the pass/fail option are not counted toward the minor.

Advanced Mathematical Methods Minor
The mathematical methods minor will consist of four distinct components. Students will be required to take at least one Stern course to fulfill this minor.

3.Numerical Analysis MATHUA 252 (Formerly V63.0252) 4 units.
OR Numerical Methods I MATHGA 2010 (Formerly G63.2010) 3 units.
4. One course from the advanced course list below:
 Ordinary Differential Equations MATHUA 262 (Formerly V63.0262) 4 units.
 Partial Differential Equations MATHUA 263 (Formerly V63.0263) 4 units.

 Analysis MATHUA 325 (Formerly V63.0325) 4 units.
Notes
All students must take at least one Stern course in order to meet minor
requirements. If a student has completed the CAS version of Probability,
STATUB 14 should not be taken. Instead, please select one of the following:
  Statistical Inference and Regression Analysis STATUB 15 (Formerly C22.0015) 3 units.
  Introduction to Stochastic Processes STATUB 21 (Formerly C22.0021) 3 units.
  Students who have the equivalent of MATHUA 140 should substitute a more advanced course from the list above.
Mathematics Education Minor for Math Majors
The Mathematics Education Minor (for Mathematics Majors) enables you to complete course work as an undergraduate in CAS that will reduce the number of credits required of a Steinhardt School of Education M.A. degree in Teachers of Mathematics, Grades 712 that will fulfill the requirements for Initial teacher certification. The master's degree will require 30 credits including student teaching internships beyond the bachelor's degree.
Ideally you would want to declare the minor and begin taking these courses during your first semester of junior year. Please be advised that most of these courses require a field work component consisting of classroom observation and participation. For course descriptions, please see the current Steinhardt School of Education's Undergraduate Bulletin at http://www.steinhardt.nyu.edu/bulletin.
