The Courses

The Department offers courses in mathematics and statistics for students with various interests and mathematical backgrounds. MATH 100 is a basic mathematics course which satisfies the General Education R1 requirement; it is not a pre-calculus course. The courses numbered 011, 101, 102, 103, and 104 are intended to assist the student in preparation for an introductory calculus course. MATH 127-128 is a calculus sequence for business and life and social science students. MATH 131-132 is the calculus sequence for students in fields such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science, and engineering.

(All courses carry 3 credits unless otherwise noted.)
