GENERAL INFORMATION FOR MATH1131 and MATH1141

Background

MATH1131, Mathematics 1A, and MATH1141, Higher Mathematics 1A, are ﬁrst year courses taught by the School of Mathematics and Statistics in semester 1, and are each worth six units of credit. MATH1131 is also taught in semester 2. Students who pass MATH1131 in semester 1 usually continue to study MATH1231, Mathematics 1B, in semester 2. Those students who pass MATH1141 with a Credit usually continue to study MATH1241, Higher Mathematics 1B, in semester 2. MATH1231 is also taught in Summer Session. MATH1131 and MATH1231 (or MATH1141 and MATH1241) are generally speciﬁed in Engineering programs, as well as many Science programs. Students can only count one of MATH1131 and MATH1141 towards their degree. The excluded courses for MATH1131 are: MATH1011, MATH1031, MATH1141, MATH1151, ECON1202 and ECON2291. For the excluded courses for MATH1141 replace MATH1141 by MATH1131.
