What are Mathematics (MATH) core courses?
All first-year students take a common selection of math courses called core courses. Normally in the fall term, students take:
- Classical Algebra (MATH 135 or MATH 145),
- Calculus 1 (MATH 137 or MATH 147), and
- Computer Science (CS) (one of CS 115, CS 135, or CS 145).
What is a typical course load?
You will be taking five courses (2.5 units) in both your 1A (fall 2020) and 1B (winter 2021) terms. These courses consist of your core courses as well as two non-math courses.
