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 UA Math 112 required for placement into this course.  Test scores expire after one year.

If my scores are lower than the Placement Level: Math 100, then Math 112, then Math 119A

Comments: This course is for majors within Physiology, Biology, Molecular and Cellular Biology, and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology.  Because this course is considered a survey of calculus, it cannot be used to satisfy the Math 122B/125 requirement 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.
