## MATHEMATICS COURSES

**Please note these important guidelines:**

• Prerequisites may only be waived with the permission of department chairperson.• Prerequisites may only be waived with the permission of department chairperson.

**• Policy on Calculators: All students in honors program are required to have a graphing calculator. Any course with the (GC) designation requires a TI 83 or TI 84 graphing calculator. A limited number of graphing calculators are available to rent from the mathematics department.**
