Mathematics/Quantitative Reasoning Course Options

 

All students must complete a General Education (GE) Area B4 Mathematical Concepts course during their first year at SJSU. You are strongly advised to complete your GE Area B4 math/QR requirement during your first semester. Placement in your GE Area B4 math/QR course is dependent on two factors: your major and your enrollment category. Follow these steps to see which course is right for you:

  1. Determine if your major requires calculus:
