MAT Advisement

MAT Advisement

Dear Student,
Email an advisor for assistance with overtallies, transfer mathematics credits, and requirements for your major. Be sure to include your full name, EMPLID, and a detailed description of your request.

If you have any questions or difficulties registering for mathematics courses, please schedule an appointment with an advisor. A list of the department’s faculty advisors can be found at the bottom of the page.

For additional information, see Applied Mathematics Major Resources.

Please note overtallies are not possible at this time.

Sincerely,
Department of Mathematics and Computer Science

Math Advisement Guide

This guide is for students who intend to take MAT 105, MAT 106, MAT 108, MAT 141, MAT 150, or MAT 241.

 

MAT 105 College Algebra (3 credits)
This course is intended to prepare students for MAT 141 (Pre-calculus) and may be of particular interest to students interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering, or mathematics) careers. It further develops the algebra from high school mathematics. Students who plan to take MAT 105, some of the skills they are expected to know before entering the class are listed below. If this material is unfamiliar to students, then they should consider taking the algebra workshops hosted by the MSRC.
MAT 105 Self-Assessment of Readiness: Part 1, Part 2

MAT 106 Liberal Arts Mathematics (3 credits)
This modern survey course is intended to prepare students for a quick dive in topics including thinking critically, approaches to problem solving, numbers in the real world, managing money, statistical reasoning, probability, mathematics and politics, and more. This course may be of particular interest to students interested to sharpen their algebra skills on a variety of different mathematical topics and their applications.

MAT 108 Social Science Mathematics (3 credits)
This course is intended to prepare students for STA 250 (Principles and Methods of Statistics) and may be of particular interest to students interested in the social sciences careers. MAT 108 ties a variety of interconnected statistical topics together with applications to the social sciences and other fields.

MAT 141 Pre-calculus (3 credits)
This course may be of particular interest to students interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering, or mathematics) careers. Students who plan to take MAT 141 will be expected to have a strong foundation in intermediate algebra, some knowledge of functions, and graphing. Below are some concepts the instructor will expect students to be familiar with before entering the class. If this material is unfamiliar to students, then they should consider taking MAT 105 before taking MAT 141.
MAT 141 Self-Assessment of Readiness

MAT 150 Introduction to Data Analysis (3 credits)
An alternative modern survey course to MAT 106 for non-STEM and non-STA 250 bound students who get placed in MAT 141 should be advised to take such course that embodies a sampling of some of the newest fields in contemporary mathematics and computing science e.g. machine learning, cryptography, database management, coding fundamentals, quantum computing, etc. More still to come...

MAT 151/241 Calculus I (3-4 credits)
This course may be of particular interest to students interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering, or mathematics) careers. Students who plan to take MAT 151/241 will be expected to have a strong foundation in pre-calculus. Below are some concepts the instructor will expect students to be familiar with before entering the class. If this material is unfamiliar to students, then they should consider taking MAT 141 before taking MAT 151/241.
MAT 151/241 Self-Assessment of Readiness

Note: The Self-Assessment of Readiness will help reinforce the prerequisite algebra skills needed for such courses. Students are advised to self-assess their completed work.
