## What are the Honour Courses? What is their purpose?

- The Honours Courses are a group of MATH level-1000 and -2000 courses (with course code ending in `8' instead of `0'), at the core of the MATH curriculum, intended for mathematics-major students with good abilities, and with prospective further studies in mind.
- The Honours Courses are designed with the explicit purpose of preparing students who intend to acquire a wider and deeper understanding in mathematics, and who want to reap the full benefits of the Enrichment Stream or the `Enrichment-and-CAM' `Double Stream'.

## Which Honour Courses are offered?

For the detail of the individual courses, refer to the CUSIS.

Course Code | Course Title | Semester offered | Intended for |
---|---|---|---|

MATH1018 | Honours University Mathematics | First Semester | First-Year students (`Freshmen') (Eligibility?) |

MATH1038 | Honours Linear Algebra I | First Semester | First-Year students (`Freshmen') (Eligibility?) |

MATH1058 | Honours Foundation of Modern Mathematics | Second Semester # | First-Year students (Eligibility?) |

MATH2018 | Honours Advanced Calculus I | Second Semester # | First-Year students (Eligibility?) |

MATH2028 | Honours Advanced Calculus II | First Semester | Second-Year students |
