Choose your math courses
Note that all MATH courses satisfy the M requirement.

While all efforts have been made to present an accurate information below, in case of discrepancy with the Academic Calendar, the Academic Calendar shall prevail. You are strongly advised to verify mathematics course requirements for your program in Academic Calendar and with an advisor in the Faculty administering your program.

In what follows, "MATH 15A0" means "one of MATH 1500, MATH 1510 or MATH 1520", and "MATH 17A0" means "one of MATH 1700 or MATH 1710".

Remarks

Recommendations are indicated where there is a choice among required courses or where it is advisable that a course be taken in first year. Students intending to enter a specific faculty and/or major program within that Faculty are urged to consult the University of Manitoba Undergraduate Calendar and/or representatives of the Faculty/program in question, for more information.

MATH 1500 and MATH 1510 are always interchangeable as prerequisites for later courses in Mathematics, as are MATH 1700 and MATH 1710. Other departments and faculties may not provide similar flexibility in the use of our courses as prerequisites and corequisites for their courses and programs. You are advised to consult their prerequisite and corequisite requirements as described in the University of Manitoba Undergraduate Calendar.

Students planning to study Linear Algebra beyond Year 1 are advised to elect MATH 1220. Students who intend to take more than 3 credit hours of Year 1 calculus are advised to take MATH 1500, or MATH 1510, rather than MATH 1520.

MATH 1510 has the high school course Physics 40S as a prerequisite. MATH 1710 has the University physics course PHYS 1050 as a prerequisite or corequisite. Examples drawn from physics will be used in these courses.

In most cases where a program requires MATH 1300, MATH 1500 or MATH 1700, the following substitutions may be made: MATH 1220 instead of MATH 1300, MATH 1230 instead of MATH 1500, and MATH 1232 instead of MATH 1700. These courses are not considered equivalent; for example MATH 1300 (MATH 1500, MATH 1700) may not simply be substituted for MATH 1220 (MATH 1230, MATH 1232). It is possible to satisfy a program requirement of MATH 1220 with a sufficiently high grade in MATH 1300, but such substitutions are not recommended.
