# Core Math Flowchart Sequences

## 2021-22

**All students should seek advising related to their appropriate math placement based on major of interest and General University Requirements (GURs).** The text below outlines a possible sequence for math coursework based on a student’s academic interest area. Students may register for the highest level of math they qualify for based on ALEKS Math Placement Assessment Scores or other transfer credit/placement information.

### Math, Science and Engineering majors math sequence

Students pursuing a major in math/science are recommended to take math their first quarter at WWU. The sequence of math courses to follow is:

Quarter 1: Math 099 Introductory Algebra (5 credits) No degree credit

Quarter 2: Math 112 Functions and Algebraic Methods (5 credits)

Quarter 3: Math 114 Precalculus I (5 credits)

Quarter 4: Math 115 Precalculus II (5 credits and requires a previous WWU course) or Math 118 Accelerated Precalculus (5 credits)

Quarter 5: Math 124 Calculus and Analytic Geometry I (5 credits)

Quarter 6: Math 125 Calculus and Analytic Geometry II (5 credits)

Quarter 7: Math 224 Multivariable Calculus (5 credits)

Math 138 Accelerated Calculus (5 credits) is an option for students with a suitable

AP score and is a prerequisite to Math 224

### College of Business & Economics majors math sequence

Students pursuing a major in the College of Business and Economics should start math early. The sequence of math courses to follow is:

Quarter 1: Math 099 Introductory Algebra (5 credits) No degree credit

Quarter 2: Math 112 Functions and Algebraic Methods (5 credits)

Quarter 3: Math 156 Algebra With Applications to Business and Economics (4 credits) or Math 114 Precalculus 1 (5 credits)

Quarter 4: Math 157 Calculus With Applications to Business and Economics (4 credits) or Math 115 Precalculus II, followed by Math 124 Calculus I (5 credits)

Note: Math 124/134/138 or AP Calculus 3-5 fulfills Math 157

### Math sequence to fulfill Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning (QSR) portion of GURs

Students pursuing a major that does not include math or any other coursework that requires math placement will complete math for Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning GUR purposes. Students are strongly advised to meet with an advisor to determine their best course of action for fulfilling their QSR. Below is a sample sequence:

Quarter 1: Math 099 Introductory Algebra (5 credits) No degree credit

Quarter 2: Math 107 Math Reasoning and Its Applications (4 credits) or Math 108 Math Applications & Reasoning (4 credits) or Math 112 Functions and Algebraic Methods (5 credits)

Quarter 3 or future quarter: One additional course from: ANTH 335, CSCI 103, CSCI 172, DSCI 207, ENVS 201, ENVS 221, FIN 216, MGMT 201, MATH 107, MATH 108, MATH 112, MATH 160, MATH 240, PHIL 102, SOC 304.

**Alternative language: Future quarter-take appropriate course to complete QSR GUR.

### Elementary Education program math sequences:

Quarter 1: Math 099 Introductory Algebra (5 credits) No degree credit

Quarter 2: Choose either Math 111 Algebra for Elementary Teachers (5 credits) or Math 112 Functions and Algebraic Methods (5 credits)

Quarter 3: Choose and begin one of two sequences: Math 371 Teaching P-3 Mathematics I (4 credits) or Math 381 Teaching K-8 Mathematics I (4 credits)

Quarter 4: Continue with next course in sequence: Math 372 Teaching P-3 Mathematics II (4 credits) or Math 382 Teaching K-8 Mathematics II (4 credits)

Quarter 5: Continue with next course in sequence: Math 373 Teaching P-3 Mathematics III (4 credits) or Math 383 Teaching K-8 Mathematics III (4 credits)

### Honors math sequence:

Quarter 1: Math 134 Calculus I Honors (5 credits)

Quarter 2: Math 135 Calculus II Honors (5 credits) or Math 125 Calculus and Analytic II Geometry (5 credits)

Quarter 3: Math 224 Multivariable Calculus and Geometry I (5 credits)
