12 course credits from:
MAT2324 Ordinary Differential Equations and the Laplace Transform1 3
MAT2348 Discrete Mathematics2 3
MAT2355 Introduction to Geometry 3
MAT2362 Foundations of Mathematics3 3
MAT2371 Introduction to Probability 3
MAT2375 Introduction to Statistics 3
12 optional course credits in mathematics (MAT) at the 3000 or 4000 level
6 optional course credits in mathematics (MAT) at the 4000 level
The course MAT3153 cannot be counted for credit if you have previously passed MAT4153. You may however take MAT3153 and then subsequently take MAT4153, and count both for credit.
Students planning to go to graduate school in mathematics must consult the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.
1Students interested in applied mathematics should take MAT2324 and MAT3341.
2Students interested in discrete mathematics should take MAT2348.
3MAT2362 is strongly recommended and is required for further study of logic.

This message is intended for students registered in the Faculty of Science. If the components of your program of study require common compulsory courses, you will have to replace the credits as follows:

1) 1000-level courses must be replaced with elective course credits;

2) 2000-level courses and above must be replaced with optional course credits from either discipline at the same level or above.

Please note that all programs in the Faculty of Science require a minimum of 12 elective course credits from the Faculty of Arts, the Faculty of Education, the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of Social Sciences or the Telfer School of Management. Once you have decided on the replacement courses, please inform the Office of Undergraduate Programs of the Faculty of Science by email at so we may amend your Rabaska audit accordingly.
