MATH 1LS3, Fall 2018

CALCULUS FOR THE LIFE SCIENCES I

Which calculus course should I take?

Math 1LS3 — 1LT3   This two-semester sequence is called Calculus for the Life Sciences. The course assumes that you have taken Grade 12 Calculus&Vectors, but there will be a lot of review of this material at the beginning of the course. You should take this course if you are required to take a university-level calculus course and you do not plan to take more advanced mathematics courses. This course is accepted as a prerequisite for more advanced courses in mathematics, but it is not recommended. If you think you will want to study more math, you will be much better prepared by taking the sequence Math 1A03-Math 1AA3. In particular, there are many topics which will be assumed in the subsequent course Math 2X03 that are not covered in Math 1LT3.
