Last update: October 20, 2011

Overview of changes:

  • Math 102 (College Algebra) split into Math 102 (College Algebra) and Math 104A (Precalculus: Algebra).
  • Math 103 (Trigonometry) replaced by Math 104B (Precalculus: Trigonometry).
  • New biology/microbiology math sequence introduced: Math 105/204/205.

1. Students planning to take calculus in the Math 206-209 sequence should take Math 104A and 104B.

  • Math 104A (Precalculus: Algebra)- Prerequisite: Math 91 (with C or above), a score of 50 or more on (or exemption from) the ELM exam.
  • Math 104B (Precalculus: Trigonometry)- Corequisite: Math 104A (with C or above).
  • Math 104A and Math 104B may be taken in the same quarter.
  • Math 206-209 (Calculus I-IIII)- Prerequisite: Math 104A and Math 104B (with C or above)
  • To register in Math 104A, 104B or 206, you must have completed all prerequisites within the past year. Otherwise, you will need to take the corresponding exit exam.
  • Exit exams for Math 91, 104A and 104B are available at the University Testing Center. More on exit exams...
What if I passed Math 102/103 already? What about GE requirements? Programs requiring Math 206-209

2. Students in the BS in Biology and BS in Microbiology programs should take Math 104A and Math 105 as prerequisites for the Math 204/205 applied calculus sequence.

  • Math 104A (Precalculus: Algebra)- Prerequisite: Math 91 (with C or above), a score of 50 or more on (or exemption from) the ELM exam.
  • Math 105 (Introduction to Mathematical Models in Biology)- Prerequisite: Math 104A (with C or above).
  • Math 204/205 (Applied Calculus I/II)- Prerequisite: Math 105 (with C or above).
  • The BS in Biology program requires both Math 204 and Math 205. The BS in Microbiology program requires only Math 204.
  • To register in Math 104A or 105, you must have completed all prerequisites within the past year. Otherwise, you will need to take the corresponding exit exam.
  • Exit exams for Math 91, 104A and 105 are available at the University Testing Center. More on exit exams...

3. Students in the BA in Economics, BS in Food Science and Technology, and BS in Industrial Technology (Industry Track) programs should take Math 104A as a prerequisite for Math 242.

  • Math 104A (Precalculus: Algebra)- Prerequisite: Math 91 (with C or above), a score of 50 or more on (or exemption from) the ELM exam.
  • Math 242 (Mathematics for Business and Economics Majors)- Prerequisite: Math 102 or Math 104A (with C or above).
  • The BS in Food Science and Technology also requires Math/Econ 109.
  • The BA in Economics program allows Math 206 in place of Math 242.
  • To register in Math 104A or 242, you must have completed all prerequisites within the past year. Otherwise, you will need to take the corresponding exit exam.
  • Exit exams for Math 91 and Math 104A are available at the University Testing Center. More on exit exams...
