Prerequisites

Only immediate prerequisites are given here; be sure to check whether the prerequisites for a given course have their own prerequisites.

The earlier quarters of a multiquarter course (xxx-1,2 or xxx-1,2,3) are prerequisites for the later quarters.

Courses equivalent to each course in our equivalents list serve as prerequisites for the same courses, whether all are listed below or not.

The numbers in this chart are the new math course numbers, effective Fall 2005/6.
