Calculus and Discrete Mathematics

Science, Engineering, Math and BS Economics students take calculus classes from the Math 30-31-32 track while Business, Technology, Aviation, Packaging and BA Economics students take Math 71.  Computer Science, Mathematics, Computer Engineering and Software Engineering majors take Math 42,  Discrete Mathematics.  Eligibility to register for these courses can be obtained through coursework or evaluation of prerequisite knowledge.  

The Precalculus Proficiency Assessment (PPA) can be used to satisfy the prerequisites for the first semester of Calculus and Discrete Mathematics, i.e. Math 30, Math 30X , Math 71, Math 71X, Math 42 and Math 42X.   More information can be found on the Precalculus Proficiency Assessment (PPA).
