3 or 4 |
CR in M 408K or M 408N or M 408R |
M 408L or M 408S(2) |
(1) M 408D AP Hon is specifically designed to be consistent with the Calculus AP-AB curriculum and is taught at the honors level. It skips some material AP students cover in high school and allows in depth coverage of new material. Students should also consult with their academic advisor for other calculus courses that will fulfill their degree requirements.
(2) M 408S is restricted to students in the College of Natural Sciences.
