While the courses indicated above are sufficient to meet program requirements at the referenced institutions, it should be noted that, at some institutions, program flexibility permits a slight variation in the choice of courses as listed.  Students are strongly advised to consult on-line calendars or to contact departmental advisors at their chosen institution to obtain further information about alternate course options or about any ‘strongly recommended’ courses in this particular Mathematics Major program.

  1. Students at SFU must take one of Ordinary Differential Equations (310) and Numerical Analysis (MACM 316). These are used to satisfy upper-level requirements in the degree.
  2. It should be carefully checked whether Computer Science courses transfer to UBC Vancouver – transfer credit is hard to get for UBC CPSC 110 or 210 or MATH 210, which form the computing prerequisites for a B.Sc. in Mathematics at UBC.
  3. UVIC Logic and Foundations is an “Introduction to proofs” class. Sometimes Discrete Mathematics I courses receive transfer credit. Additionally, UVIC MATH 204 is Calculus IV. It includes a substantial amount of Ordinary Differential Equations. Students who transfer with Ordinary Differential Equations instead should experience no difficulties.
