**Math 119A- Special Calculus Course with Biological Emphasis, alternative for Biology, EEB, MCB, and a few other majors**

**Math 119A - Mathematics of Biological Systems: A Calculus Based Approach** (4 credits)

**Description:** This course uses real world examples drawn from biology, ecology, and physiology to develop and study models of biological dynamical systems using concepts from calculus.

**Placement Level:** ALEKS PPL score of 60-100% , SAT I MSS 640-800, ACT MATH 26-36, or U of A Math 112 required for placement into this course. Test scores expire after one year. SAT/ACT placement is generally for first year students only.

**If my scores are lower than the Placement Level:** Math 100, then Math 112, then Math 119A. Transfer prerequisites must be less than 2 years old to place a student into Math 119A. Math 120R is also a prerequisite to Math 119A.

**Comments:** This course is for majors within Physiology, Biology, Molecular and Cellular Biology, and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Psychological Sciences, Natural Resources, Environmental Sciences and a few other majors. Consult your advisor before enrolling in Math 119A. This course does not cover the same content as Math 122B/125 and cannot be used as a prerequisite to additional calculus courses such as Math 122A, 122B, 125, or 129. Students who need Calculus I should take Math 120R, then 122A/B. Math 119A is not a prerequisite to Math 129, Calculus II.
