Sequences of Calculus Courses offered by the Department

The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers several calculus sequences to meet the needs of students with various placement levels. The sequences all cover the elements of calculus for functions of one and several variables. These sequences differ both in focus and in prerequisites which are determined by Math Placement Levels.

By successfully completing any one of the sequences below, you will satisfy any requirement of "three semesters of calculus", even though some sequences require only two courses and others five courses. Traditionally, a sequence of calculus is taught in three semesters.

Courses on consecutive lines must be taken in consecutive order unless noted otherwise. Please not that a grade of C or better is required to advance to the next course.
