Frequently asked questions: non-majors
I have taken MAT 140. My advisor says I need to take MAT 150 for my degree, but I see I cannot receive credit for both MAT 140 and 150. What should I do?
Take MAT 145: the combination of MAT 140 and MAT 145 is equivalent to MAT 150.
I am taking MAT 117 because my advisor says it is a prerequisite (or will help me) in MAT 140 (or some other higher-numbered course). This way I am at least earning college credit.
MAT 117 is not a prerequisite for any MAT course. It also has nothing in common with other MAT courses, so will not really help you with any other MAT course.
Frequently asked questions: majors
Which computer-science courses count for my computer programming requirement as a mathematics major?
Take any of CSC 145, CSC 232, CSC 235 or EGR 140.
