Advising for Mathematics and Natural Sciences
- BIOL 1107K and BIOL 1108K are designed for science majors. While that does not mean a non-science major will not succeed, students with weak math and chemistry skills may have a hard time. Please encourage non-science majors to take BIOL 1111K and BIOL 1112K.
- Science majors who are not ready for MATH 1113 (Pre-Calculus) must take MATH 1111 (College Algebra). They may not take MATH 1001. If you are advising LS students who plan to be science majors, please keep this in mind.
- All science majors are strongly encouraged to take CHEM 1211K and CHEM 1212K in their first year.
- A non-science major can take MATH 1111 (Algebra) and have it count in Area A. However, the mathematics faculty does not encourage this unless the student’s major requires it.
- A non-science major can take MATH 1001 (Quantitative Skills), MATH 1111 (Algebra), and MATH 1113 (Pre-Calculus) and get credit for each. MATH 1101 would fulfill an Area A requirement. MATH 1111 and MATH 1113 would count, respectively, in Areas B and D (as the elective).
- If your major requires Organic Chemistry (CHEM 2401), you MUST take CHEM 1211 in the Fall semester of your Freshman year, if you want to graduate in 2 years.
- Non-science majors should be advised against taking CHEM 1211; it reduces necessary seats for science majors plus non-science majors typically struggle/suffer with the math component.
