A student who qualifies for a particular mathematics course is eligible for any course
lower in 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.
