MTH 2 Basic Mathematical Tools for Science.

Scientists today use a variety of mathematical tools, including calculus, discrete mathematics, and statistics to describe physical, biological, and social systems. This sequence helps students analyze problems from several perspectives with increasing sophistication as they progress from Calculus I through the other courses. The discrete mathematics, linear algebra, and statistics courses can be taken in any order, but all have Calculus I as prerequisite.

1. MTH 151 Calculus I (5) (MPF), or
MTH 153 Calculus I (4) (MPF); and

2. MTH 222 Introduction to Linear Algebra (3), or
MTH 231 Elements of Discrete Mathematics (3), or
MTH 222T/331T Linear Algebra/Discrete Mathematics (Honors) (5); and

3. STA 301 Applied Statistics (3), or
STA 368 Introduction to Statistics (4)

Note: Not open to majors in the Departments of Mathematics or Statistics. Business majors will not receive credit for this sequence.
