Students taking __ any mathematics course__ may find the following
points helpful.

The __ main York calendar __ will answer many questions that are not
addressed in this booklet. Please remember in particular that
the main calendar contains the ``official", legally binding
statements of all university and faculty regulations.

When selecting courses, please note the following:

1. A student choosing university-level mathematics courses for the first time should consider speaking to either an advisor (either at the Advising Center (Arts), the Office of Student Programmes (Science), or the Department's Undergraduate Office) or a Department faculty member. For students with a grade of about 70\% or higher in OAC calculus can be reasonably confident of success in any of the first year calculus courses (see (a)--(d) below).

2. MATH1510.06 is intended for students who have a weak mathematical background, even those who may have one or more OACs in mathematics (or equivalents). MATH1520.06 is designed for students who do not have credit in any OACs in mathematics but will not be offered in 1995-96. Both MATH1510.06 and MATH1520.06 can serve as preparation for MATH1500.03 and from there entrance to further calculus courses.

3. Note on calculus courses for first-year students.

a) BBA students who wish to take only a minimum amount of mathematics should take both MATH1530.03 and MATH1540.03, or MATH1550.06. The prerequisite for these courses is MATH1500.03 or OAC Calculus or equivalent.

b) Science students (particularly those majoring in Biology, Geography, Physical Education or Psychology) who do not require other specific calculus courses to satisfy degree requirements or as prerequisites for higher-level courses, may take SC/MATH1505.06 to satisfy the Faculty of Pure and Applied Science 1000-level mathematics requirement.

Other students should be guided by paragraphs (c) and (d) below.

c) A student with at least one OAC in mathematics or equivalent, but without previous calculus, must begin the study of calculus with MATH1500.03.

d) A student with OAC Calculus or equivalent can begin with MATH1000.03 or MATH1013.03 or MATH1300.03 and then take MATH1010.03 or MATH1014.03 or MATH1310.03.

**I. Applied Mathematics (BA or BSc)**

**II. Mathematics (BA or BSc)**

**III. Mathematics for Commerce (BA)**

**IV. Statistics (BA or BSc)**

The degree programmes in each major are described in checklists. (See printed Manual under Checklists). A student should choose one of these majors based on interest and employment goals; but it is possible to change major provided the requirements of the desired major can be met.

To encourage students to study OR and seek employment in this field, the Canadian Operational Research Society (CORS) offer a Diploma in Operational Research to those students who have completed a prescribed set of courses. See Operations Research under the Programmes section for more details.

The Department of Computer Science and Mathematics at Atkinson College offers mathematics courses at night and during the summer. Certain courses, especially 3000-level and 4000-level, are not offered every year. Many Atkinson courses are considered equivalent (or are exemptions) to Faculty of Arts/Science courses and can be taken in place of the latter vfor degree credit. All Atkinson Math courses which have the same course number as a course offered by the Department are equivalent to the corresponding Arts/Science course. The following is a list of course equivalences where the numbers differ. However there are Atkinson courses which are degree credit exclusions to Faculty of Arts/Science courses. You should consult the Atkinson degree credit exclusion list available from the Office of Student programs in your faculty.

AK/MATH1409.03C 1500.03 AK/MATH1710.06 1510.06 AK/ECON2560.03/2570.03 1530.03/1540.03 AK/MATH2220.06 2221.03/2222.03 AK/MATH2430.06 2560.03/2570.03 AK/MATH3530.06 3131.03/3132.03 AK/COSC3510.06 3241.03/3242.03

All Atkinson courses which are equivalent to an SC course count as Science credits. However until this year those that are equivalend to an Arts course have not counted as AS credit. The information is not available at this time whether some of the Atkinson courses will count as ``In-faculty'' courses in the Faculty of Arts or not. You should assume that they do NOT count as in-faculty and ask at the Undergraduate Office for the most up to date information.
