Mathematics Course Sequence

If the student has not taken a mathematics course during the previous two years, it is strongly recommended that the student enroll in a course below the one for which he or she would normally be eligible. Prerequisites are listed in the individual course descriptions. A grade of C or higher is required for all prerequisite courses. Extra supplies may be required in all Mathematics classes except MATH 811.
