1 Students are strongly advised to take MATH 1220, MATH 1230 and MATH 1232. The following substitutions are allowed (but not advised), provided the grades indicated in brackets are achieved: MATH 1300 (A) in place of MATH 1220, MATH 1500 (A) or MATH 1510 (A) in place of MATH 1230, MATH 1700 (A) or MATH 1710 (A) in place of MATH 1232, MATH 1690 (B) in place of MATH 1230 and MATH 1232. With permission from the department, students may be able to substitute STAT 1000 and STAT 2000 in place of STAT 1150.
