All courses in Mathematics presuppose a minimum of two years of high school mathematics including one year each of algebra and plane geometry. All of the calculus courses require an additional year of algebra or precalculus, and all except Math 112 require a course in trigonometry.

The standard precalculus course is Math 105/106. The content of the two courses is the same; Math 105 is taught in standard lecture-recitation format, while Math 106 is offered as a self-study course through the Mathematics Laboratory. Students completing Math 105/106 are fully prepared for Math 115. Math 103/104 (the algebra part of 105/106) and Math 101 are offered in the Summer half term exclusively for students in the Summer Bridge Program. Math 109/110 is offered as a 7-week course in each half of the Fall term for students who despite apparent adequate preparation are unable to complete successfully one of the calculus courses.

Each of Math 112, 113, 115, 175, 185, and 195 is a first course in calculus and normally credit is allowed for only one of these courses. Math 112 is designed primarily for pre-business and social science students who expect to take only one term of calculus. It neither presupposes nor covers any trigonometry. The sequence Math 113-114 is designed for students of the life sciences who expect to take only one year of calculus. Neither Math 112 nor Math 113-114 prepares a student for any further courses in mathematics. Math 113 does not prepare a student for Math 116.

The standard calculus sequence taken by the great majority of students is Math 115-116-215. These courses provide a complete introduction to calculus and prepare a student for further study in mathematics. Students who intend to concentrate in mathematics or who have a greater interest in the theory should follow Math 215 with the sequence Math 217-316. Math 217 provides the background in linear algebra necessary for optimal treatment of some of the material on differential equations presented in Math 316. Math 316 covers the material of Math 216 and Math 404. Other students may follow Math 215 with Math 216 which covers some of the material of Math 316 without use of linear algebra. Math 217 also serves as a transition to the more theoretical material of upper-division mathematics courses.

Math 175, 185, and 195 are Honors courses, but are open to all students (not only those in the LS&A Honors Program) with permission of a mathematics Honors counselor in 1210 Angell Hall. Students with strong preparation and interest in mathematics are encouraged to consider these courses; they are both more interesting and more challenging than the standard sequence. The sequence Math 175-176 covers, in addition to elementary calculus, a substantial amount of so-called combinatorial mathematics including graph theory, coding, and enumeration theory. It is taught by the discovery method; students are presented with a great variety of problems and encouraged to experiment in groups using computers. Math 176 may be followed by either Math 285 or Math 215. The sequence Math 185-186-285-286 is a comprehensive introduction to calculus and differential equations at a somewhat deeper and more theoretical level than Math 115-116-215-216. Under some circumstances it is possible (with permission of a mathematics counselor) to transfer between these two sequences.

The sequence Math 195-196-295-296 is a more rigorous and intensive introduction to advanced mathematics. It includes all of the content of the lower sequence and considerably more. Students are expected to understand and construct proofs as well as do calculations and solve problems. No previous calculus is required, although many students in this course have had some calculus. Students completing this sequence will be ready to take advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate level courses.

Students who have achieved good scores on the College Board Advanced Placement Exam may receive credit and advanced placement in the sequence beginning with Math 115. Other students who have studied calculus in high school may take a departmental placement examination during the first week of the Fall term to receive advanced placement WITHOUT CREDIT. No advanced placement credit is granted to students who elect Math 185, and students who elect Math 195 receive such credit only after satisfactory completion of Math 296.

The initial topics include ones common to every branch of mathematics:
sets, functions (mappings), relations, and the common number systems
(integers, rational numbers, real numbers, complex numbers). These
are then applied to the study of two particular types of mathematical
structures: groups and rings. These structures are presented as
abstractions from many examples such as the common number systems
together with the operations of addition or multiplication, permutations
of finite and infinite sets with function composition, sets of
motions of geometric figures, and polynomials. Notions such as
generator, subgroup, direct product, isomorphism, and homomorphism
are defined and studied. A possible syllabus would include the
material from Chapters 1, 2.1-2.10, 3, and 4.1-4.5 of Herstein
