Mathematics (2 courses required)

For Students in the Classes of 2011, 2012, and 2013

Two courses are required.  Most major concentrations specify particular mathematics GER courses that their students should take to satisfy the mathematics requirement.  The student should take the courses required for their major. Students are encouraged to complete their mathematics requirements as soon as possible in order to prevent problems beyond spring 2012. 

The following courses WILL provide GER Mathematics credit for current students. Most of these courses will be offered in the Fall of 2010:

**MAT 105 Finite Mathematics with Applications in Business (formerly MAT 1151) and **MAT 106 Brief Business Calculus (formerly MAT 1161)
**These courses are part of the curricula for all Business majors will still be offered in Summer and Fall of 2010.  Business majors should not be taking substitutes for these courses, other than those already given in the catalog.

MAT 107 Topics in Contemporary Mathematics (formerly MAT 1171)
This course will still be offered in Summer and Fall of 2010

MAT 111 The Mathematics of Patterns (required for elementary education majors)

MAT 118 Introduction to Statistics (formerly MAT 1181)

MAT 130 The Whole Truth About Whole Numbers (suggested for students who would have taken MAT 1011/1021, which will no longer be offered)

MAT 131 Linear Methods (suggested for students who would have taken MAT 1011/1021, which will no longer be offered)

MAT 132 Mathematics of Games and Politics (suggested for students who would have taken MAT 1011/1021, which will no longer be offered)

MAT 136 Mathematics and Visual Arts (suggested for students who would have taken MAT 1011/1021, which will no longer be offered)

MAT 138 Symmetry (suggested for students who would have taken MAT 1011/1021, which will no longer be offered)

MAT 155 Fundamentals of Calculus (replaces MAT 1251 Applied Calculus, which is no longer being offered)


MAT 156 Applied Calculus II (formerly MAT 1261)

MAT 161 Calculus I (formerly MAT 1351), MAT 162 Calculus II (formerly MAT 1361) and MAT 213 Calculus III (formerly MAT 1371) remain unchanged and will continue to be offered.

MAT 120 Pre-Calculus Math ** This course does NOT normally fulfill a GER Mathematics requirement** (this course will continue to be offered for students whose major's require Calculus but who are not prepared to take it).

Finally, note that a student may not take two of MAT 1161, MAT 1251, or MAT 1351 (now MAT 106, MAT 155 or MAT 161) for credit.  They are all versions of Calculus I (of varying degrees of difficulty.)  If a student takes two of these, only one of them will count as one of the 40 courses needed for graduation.  (This, and other similar restrictions, are clearly specified in the catalog.)
