MATH 180 Calculus

Hand writes math formulas on a green chalkboard with white chalk

The most critical course in this program is Calculus I (MATH-180). All mathematics are offered in a sequence starting at Calculus I. If a student cannot reach to this course nor pass it successfully, he/she will not be able to take the rest of 14 credits of mathematics. Also, Calculus I is the pre-requisite of Engineering Physics I, and subsequently Engineering Physics 2.
