Math Prerequisite

If you need to take pre-calculus, MATH 1113, we strongly encourage you to enroll in CHEM 1210 now, and take CHEM 1211 the next semester. 

Data from prior years shows that 60% of students who enroll in MATH 1113 and CHEM 1211 in the same semester fail or withdraw from CHEM 1211.

  • Taking MATH 1113 before taking CHEM 1211 improves these numbers
  • Taking MATH 1113 and CHEM 1210, then taking CHEM 1211, has the best student outcome.
