Math Counts!

8 credits for 16 students.

Discover Calculus and hone your writing and critical thinking in creative and effective ways. A good FIG for students considering mathematics or the sciences as a major. Students choose one of the following Calculus classes plus take COMP 101 and FY 100. These math courses each satisfy the General Education FM requirement and count for 4 credit hours. For Math course placement, consult Victoria Klawitter or an adviser from the Mathematics Department.

COMP 101-F20 Writing and Critical Thinking 4 Cr. TuTh 11:00-12:15pm Stanavage, L.
Encourages development of writing, critical thinking and the use of information resources. Addresses how language permits communication, shapes thought and changes through time. NOTE: Plus 1 hour TBA. Satisfies General Education FW requirement.

Choose ONE of the following three MATH courses:

MATH 141-F20 Integrated Calculus IA 4 Cr. Tu 9:30-10:45am; MWF 10:00-10:50am Miller, C.
First course of a two-semester sequence that provides mathematical background sufficient for study of calculus and integrates it with the study of calculus.
