Love it or hate it, everyone has to take math to get a Bachelor’s degree! For LMC majors, you actually have two different options to satisfy the core math requirement:

Option A: MATH 1551, 1552, & 1553

Commonly referred to as the “calculus sequence”

Students in Architecture, Computing, Engineering, and Sciences take this sequence and higher levels of math

Students in Ivan Allen College can take this sequence to satisfy the math requirement

MATH 1711 = Finite Math and MATH 1712 = Survey of Calculus

More common option taken by LMC majors

How Do I Decide Which Math to Take?

If you are 100% certain you will stick with LMC as your major (or one of the other IAC majors: ECON, INTA, PUBP, ALIS, HTS, etc.) then you may want to take MATH 1711 & 1712

If you are considering other major options or a minor with one of the other colleges then you may want to select the calculus sequence

You can still choose to take MATH 1711 & 1712 if you’d rather not continue the calculus sequence (any AP, IB credit, previously taken 15xx classes can move to free electives)

Tips & Tricks for Math as an LMC Major

Just because one sequence is a lower number than the other doesn’t mean it’s “easier”

MATH 1711 & 1712 are not a sequence so you don’t have to take them in order or back-to-back

You cannot mix and match 15xx and 17xx math classes to satisfy your core requirement
