** MATH 384 Differential Equations (3)  is offered in the spring of odd years. It can be taken in the sophomore, junior, or senior year. MATH 364 Linear Algebra (3)  and MATH 468 Algebraic Structures (3)  are offered in spring of even years. It is recommended that MATH 364 Linear Algebra (3)  be taken as early as possible after the freshman year and that  MATH 468 Algebraic Structures (3)  not be taken until junior or senior year. 

 MATH 389 Numerical Methods (3)  is not a required course. Since it counts as both a Computer Science and Math Elective, it is a good choice. Students who elect not to take MATH 389 Numerical Methods (3)  can instead take 3 Math and 3 Computer Science Electives.
