Math Progression Chart

  • THE MATH DEPARTMENT DOES NOT ADVISE STUDENTS on progression information.
  • The Math Department (through the CNAS Enrollment Management Center) can only place you in an appropriate class based on what you have already taken or tested into. 
  • Only your advisor can tell you which progression path you should be taking. Please see your advisor for information on which path you should choose.
  • For Math majors: Your advisor, Michelle Butler, will direct you on which path to start out on, but in the end, all of the above Math classes must be taken for a BA and BS degree.



Non Math Majors

PathsClasses in Order 
Path #1 Math 4  Math 22
Path #2 Math 5  Math 9A  Math 9B  Math 9C
Path #3 Math 5 → Math 9A  Math 9B  Math 46
Path #4 Math 5  Math 9A  Math 9B  Math 10A  Math 10B
Path #5 Math 8A  Math 8B  Math 9B  Math 9C
Path #6 Math 8A  Math 8B  Math 9B  Math 46
Path #7 Math 8A  Math 8B  Math 9B  Math 10A  Math 10B
Notice Once a student has tested into Math 4, 5, or 8A, the following progressions are possible. If a student has tested directly into 8B or 9A, they would start further into one of the progression paths above.
