Notes, additional requirements, prerequisites 
MA118 
It is strongly recommended that students complete one year of geometry and two years of algebra to prepare for this course. It is available only to students with a declared major in elementary education, early childhood education, exceptional child education, middle school education, or secondary mathematics education. 
MA123 
This course, a liberal arts approach to mathematics, is for students in degree programs for which MA134 is not required. Many majors are considering changing their mathematics requirements; do not assume MA134 is still required. 
MA133 
One year of high school geometry is strongly recommended, but not required. 
MA155 
This course, an introduction to statistical literacy, is for students in degree programs for which MA134 is not required. Many majors are considering changing their mathematics requirements; do not assume MA134 is still required. 
MA138 
MA134 with a grade of C or higher 
MA139 
MA134 with a grade of C or higher 
MA140 
MA134 and MA133 with grades of C or higher or MA135 with a grade of C or higher 
MA145 
MA140 with a grade of C or higher. Note that MA139 is not sufficient. 
MA134 College Algebra includes significant coverage of specific algebraic skills and understandings needed in higher courses, and involves a certain amount of abstract thinking. MA134 is a prerequisite for several other mathematics courses and for some courses in other departments – e.g., Accounting 221, Economics 215, Physics 120.
MA123 Survey of Mathematics is a liberal arts approach to mathematics.
MA155 Statistical Reasoning is an introduction to statistical literacy. MA123 and MA155 are not prerequisites for any other course.
MA118 Mathematics I is for certain education majors, and noneducation majors are not admitted. PL120 Symbolic Logic I is taught in the Department of Philosophy.
MA134 is not designed to be a terminal course, but rather to prepare students for other courses; by contrast, MA123 and MA155 are designed specifically as terminal courses, to provide students with more immediate applications, more directly relevant ideas and less abstraction than MA134. Students who are very sure that they will take only one more mathematics course would do well, in general, to take MA155 or MA123 instead of MA134. MA134 is still the best course for people who are considering more mathematics courses, for those unsure of their major, for those who might be transferring to another university, or for those who may consider graduate studies in the future. The Mathematics Department recommends to students that they check with their major advisors before choosing MA123 or MA155 over MA134.
Finally, if a student places directly into MA138 Discrete Mathematics, MA139 Applied Calculus, MA140 Calculus I, or MA145 Calculus II, and earns a passing grade, that student has fulfilled the Logical Systems requirement.
