Calculus tracks

Students at Union who take calculus are placed into one of the following tracks of courses. Upon completing Tracks 1, 2, or 3, students may continue with Track 4 depending on interests and major/minor requirements.

Single variable calculus

Track 1

A two-term single variable calculus sequence consisting of one course in differential calculus and one course in integral calculus.

  • MTH-110
  • MTH-112

Track 2

An accelerated version of Track 1, reviewing the majority of the content of MTH-110 and MTH-112 in one term.

  • MTH-113

Track 3

A three-term version of Track 1, in which the content of MTH-110 and MTH-112 is supplemented with additional precalculus material.

  • MTH-100
  • MTH-101
  • MTH-102

Multivariable calculus

Track 4

A two-term multivariable calculus sequence, consisting of a course in differential multivariable calculus and some matrix theory, followed by a course in integral multivariable calculus.

  • MTH-115 OR MTH-115H
  • MTH-117

Track 5

A two-term, four-course integrated math-physics sequence covering the material of MTH-115, 117 and PHY-120, 121, by invitation only.

  • IMP-120
  • IMP-121
