MATH 111 Calculus I and MATH 333 Probability and Statistics are highly recommended to replace MATH 138 General Calculus I and MATH 105 Elementary Probability and Statistics, particularly for students contemplating advanced or graduate work in computing. These students also are encouraged to take MATH 112 Calculus II and one or more advanced statistics courses as free electives, such as MATH 341 Statistical Methods II or MATH 344 Regression Analysis, both of which require MATH 333 Probability and Statistics as a prerequisite.
