Students in the College of Letters, or of Social Sciences, must include the subject of Analytic Geometry as an essential part of their programme of mathematical studies. They may satisfy this prescription by electing Course 1 in their Freshman year; but those who prefer a more extended course will do well to elect Courses 2, 4, and 5. Course 6 is strongly recommended to all students who have not already studied Solid Geometry.

Students in the College of Commerce may elect Courses 1 and 6, or Courses 2, 4, and 5.

Students in the Colleges of Natural Sciences and of Agriculture, may elect either Courses 2, 4, 5, and 6, or Courses 1, 2, and 6; or Course 3A, if they enter with credit in Solid Geometry and Plane Trigonometry.

Course 3A is prescribed to Freshmen in the Colleges of Engineering and of Chemistry, and Course 3B to Sophomores in the Colleges of Engineering; Course 10 to Sophomores in the College of Civil Engineering; Course 19A to Juniors in the College of Mechanics. These courses are also open to students in any of the other colleges who have the necessary preparation.

Students wishing to make a specialty of mathematics should consult the members of the department as early as possible. The following * On leave from July 1, 1902, to June 30, 1903.

programme may serve as a proper sequence: Freshman year: Courses 2, 4, 5, 6; Sophomore year: Courses 9, 12, 13; Junior year: Courses 11, 14, 17; Senior year: Courses 15, 18, 19, 20.

Students wishing to take mathematics with reference to its applications to Astronomy and Physics, should elect Courses 9, 14, 19, and, if possible, 23 and 24.

The Group Elective. A thorough knowledge of algebra, plane trigonometry, plane analytic geometry, and the differential and integral calculus is prerequisite to Group Elective work.

Teachers' Certificates. The department will, in general, recommend as qualified to teach mathematics in high schools, only such graduates as have passed with credit in Courses 2, 4, 5, 6, 9, 11, 12, 13, 17, 18. It is also of great importance that the prospective

teacher of mathematics should be well informed on the relation of mathematics to other sciences, and he should to that end devote a considerable portion of his time to at least one of the closely related sciences. The department further reserves the right to exact a practical test of the candidate's ability to present a clear and interesting exposition of subjects taught in the high school.
