REGISTRATION INFORMATION
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 (BList).
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.
Nonregistered guests are welcome to attend.
This course can be used as an upper level Math Elective for BS MTH (BList).
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 (BList). Pass/Fail only.
D. SLSAffiliated 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:

CrossRegistration
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/
