Math 153 is an intensive form of Math 151 with an extra meeting time, covering the same syllabus. Most of the information given here for Math 151 applies to Math 153 as well.
The calculus sequence for most business, economics, and life science majors is 135 followed by 136 or 138. Any students planning to continue the study of mathematics beyond two semesters will need the sequence beginning with 151 and 152.
Math 151 and Math 152 have the same content and essentially the same format during summer session as during the fall or spring semesters. Workshops are part of these courses at any time of year, though during the summer there is no TA or peer mentor.
The summer versions of Math 151 and Math 152 do not have a common final exam, and instead each section has a final written by its own instructor. The links below to materials from previous semesters may be helpful in preparing for these exams.
