# Laboratory Science Mathematics/Statistics/Computing

**Curricular Outcome:** Ability to think and function as a scientist

College of Science students will complement critical thinking and analytical abilities gained within their major area of study by completing a two-course sequence and related laboratory experience in a science outside of their major. Students are also required to develop proficiency and knowledge in the areas of mathematics, statistics, and computer science.

## Laboratory Science

The laboratory science requirement is met by completion of a one-year sequence of laboratory science.

College of Science students are strongly encouraged by our faculty to complete laboratory courses with in-person laboratory experiences. Students transferring laboratory courses must provide documentation of in-person laboratory experiences for approval to the laboratory science requirement.

**List of Approved Lab Science Courses**

## Mathematics

- The Mathematics requirement is met by completion of a one-year sequence of single variable calculus. The following sequences are approved to meet the math requirement:

MA 16100: Plane Analytic Geometry and Calculus I (5 cr.) AND MA 16200: Plane Analytic Geometry and Calculus II (5 cr.) OR MA 16500: Analytic Geometry and Calculus I (4 cr.) AND MA 16600: Analytic Geometry and Calculus II (4 cr.)

Note: MA 16100/MA 16500 AND MA 16200/16600 may be interchanged to meet the single variable calculus requirement.

Biology Majors only: MA 16010: Applied Calculus I and MA 16020: Applied Calculus II
