The School of Math will stop receiving requests for permits and prereq overrides one day before registration closes.   For all other Registration dates, see the Official GT Calendar.

The School of Math uses the "Waitlists and Reserved Seats" functionality of the Online Registration System.   I do not manage the waitlist.  
Certain MATH courses are major restricted for the first part of Phase I registration, and the restriction will be lifted part way through Phase I registration.

Special Topics and Relatively New Classes

A.   MATH 4803 - LEV Introduction to Knot Theory  (3 hours)
Description:  This course will explore the beautiful mathematics of knots which are pieces of string that are knotted in the colloquial sense and then have their ends glued together. Given two such knots, it is surprisingly interesting and difficult to decide whether or not you can rearrange one knot into the other (no scissors allowed). This course will look at different ways to represent these knots and various techniques for deciding whether one knot can be rearranged into another. We will also explore the applications of knot theory to biology, chemistry, and physics.  This course can be used as an upper level Math Elective for BS MTH (B-List).

B.  MATH 4801 UG Undergraduate Seminar (1 hour)  Fall only
This course provides students with a broad exposure to areas of mathematics research through weekly speakers.   In addition to faculty members, speakers  include postdocs, graduate students, and undergraduate students.  All student interested in learning more about math research at GT and various mathematics topics are encouraged to register for the course!  Prerequisite:  MATH 2401 or MATH 24X1 or MATH 2605 or MATH 2551 or MATH 2X51, or permission of instructor.   Interested students who have not complete the prereq should write to academics@math,gatech with subject list MATH4801 permission.   Non-registered guests are welcome to attend.
This course can be used as an upper level Math Elective for BS MTH (B-List).  Pass/Fail only.

C.  MATH 4802 Mathematical Probem Solving (2 hour) Fall only
This course is intended to teach general mathematical problem solving skills, and to prepare students to take the Putnam Examination.
This course can be used as an upper level Math Elective for BS MTH (B-List).   Pass/Fail only.

D.  SLS-Affiliated Courses: Serve, Learn, Sustain is up to 69 affiliated courses now, and the list keeps growing.  Visit the SLS website to see which new courses have been added: http://serve-learn-sustain.gatech.edu/.

A GT student may schedule courses at Georgi State University or any of the other colleges or universities comprising the Atlanta Regional Council for Higher Education (ARCHE). Classes are paid through the student's home institution and the credit taken at a partnering school is transferred back as resident credit.   Certain restrictions apply.   Classes taken by GT students in the past include in Actuarial Science and Risk Management classes at GSU.  For more information, see:   http://www.registrar.gatech.edu/registration/cross/

MATH 2699/4699 Undergraduate Research - Guidelines

MATH 2106 Foundations of Mathematical Proof is replacing MATH 2803/4803 Foundations of Mathematical Proof and MATH 2406 Abstract Vector Spaces.
MATH 2106 will serve as a prerequisite for MATH 4107, MATH 4150, and MATH 4317. 
MATH 2106 can be used toward the Math Minor ( if MATH 2106 is not required by the student's major); MATH 2106 is not required for the Math Minor.
