# Planning for Courses in Bachelor of Science

## department of mathematics

### Calculus

Most B.S. candidates will begin their program with a calculus course. The earlier you complete the required Calculus courses, the easier your scheduling becomes.

#### Typical B.S. Programs

If you begin your program in Calculus I, the requirements may be satisfied as follows:

Fall | Spring | |

Freshman | MATH 1102 | MATH 1103 |

Sophomore | MATH 2202 | MATH 2210 MATH 2216 |

Junior | MATH 3311 MATH 3321 |
MATH 3312 MATH 3322 |

Senior | MATH elective MATH elective |
MATH elective MATH elective |

If you begin your program in Calculus II, the requirements may be satisfied as follows:

Fall | Spring | |

Freshman | MATH 1105 | MATH 2202 |

Sophomore | MATH 2210 | MATH 2216 MATH elective |

Junior | MATH 3311 MATH 3321 |
MATH 3312 MATH 3322 |

Senior | MATH elective MATH elective |
MATH elective MATH elective |

If you are prepared to enter MT 202 in the Fall of your freshman year (e.g., you got a five on the Calculus BC Advanced Placement Exam), then your requirements are reduced to:

Fall | Spring | |

Freshman | MATH 2202 | MATH 2210 MATH 2216 |

Sophomore | MATH 3311/MATH 3321 | MATH 3312/MATH 3322 |

Junior | MATH 3311/MATH 3321 MATH elective |
MATH 3312/MATH 3322 MATH elective |

Senior | MATH elective MATH elective |
MATH elective |

All of the proposed schedules above are conservative. None requires more than two courses in any semester, none proposes any acceleration during the first two years, and none proposes completing more than a minimal program. But some students will be eager to learn more mathematics sooner; many will be anxious to accelerate to prepare for graduate school. These students should see the Assistant Chair for Undergraduates.

#### Questions?

If you have a question about getting started in the B.S. Program or transitioning to it please consult with the Assistant Chair for Undergraduates.
