Courses are to be chosen in consultation with an education mathematics adviser. The following courses, or approved equivalents, must be included for a first or second teachable in mathematics:

These courses cover the requirements for a second teachable (24 credits). For a first teachable in mathematics (36 credits), and for additional breadth in a second teachable, students are encouraged to include a wider range of mathematics, and should consider courses such as The History of Mathematics, AS/SC/MATH 4400 6.00; Computational Mathematics, AK/AS/SC/MATH 3090 3.00; Operations Research I, AK/AS/SC/MATH 3170 6.00; Introduction to Geometries, AK/AS/SC/MATH 3050 6.00. When it is offered, Topics in Mathematics Education, AS/SC/MATH 4100A 3.00 is strongly recommended.

Students working towards an honours specialist in mathematics (54 credits plus additional Ministry of Education requirements), may major in any of the programs within mathematics and statistics, i.e., mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics, mathematics for commerce, computational mathematics. With appropriate course selection, each of these programs offers good opportunities for preparation in mathematics. A minor in any of these programs is also appropriate for a first teachable in mathematics.
