### Freshmen students: Mathematics-related programs

Students planning to major in a mathematics-related program should take MATH 139 or MATH 140, MATH 141 and MATH 133 if they do not have equivalents for them. Stronger students who are hoping to graduate with in an honours mathematics program should consider taking MATH 150 and MATH 151 in place of MATH 140 and MATH 141.

**** For Fall 2020 ONLY ****

The MATH 139 course is there to enable students, whose pre-calculus (high-school mathematics) background has gaps, to catch up. It takes you at the end to the same place as MATH 140. It does this by having an extra hour a week of class, so the first part of the term is devoted to pre-calculus, and then students move into calculus after a month or so.

Because of the fact that the last two or three months of high school were missed because of the pandemic, we have expanded capacity in MATH 139 to ensure that students who feel that there are gaps in their knowledge can catch up and not feel disadvantaged. Students are strongly urged to seriously consider MATH 139 as an option.

### Science Placement Exams

For students wishing to take a placement exam to exempt them from either MATH 122, 123, 133, 140 and/or 141 please see details at https://www.mcgill.ca/exams/dates/science
