I took algebra in High School. Do I really need to take more algebra?
Yes (for programs that require a 1st-year course in Linear Algebra).
How should I choose between MATH-110 or MATH-111 or MATH-112?
How should I choose between MATH-120 or MATH-121 or MATH-126
Most Computing students take MATH-111/6.0 and MATH-121/6.0 (in addition to CISC-102/3.0 and CISC-121/3.0) in 1st year.
MATH-110/6.0 and MATH-120/6.0 are more challenging than MATH-111/60 or MATH-121/6.0; we recommend them only for students who are considering doing Computing and Math (COMA) or a concentration in MATH, or who really like mathematics. If you take MATH-110/6.0, you don't need to take CISC-102/3.0.
MATH-126/6.0 is for students who didn't do 4U Math (or equivalent) in high school.
MATH-112/3.0 is an abbreviated version of MATH-111/6.0 for Computing majors; the Math department considers this plus MATH-212/3.0 together to be equivalent to MATH-111/6.0. Only take this if you're strong in Math (or if you're aiming for Biomedical Computing and can't fit MATH-111/6.0 into your schedule).
Do I have to take STAT-263 or can I substitute some other statistics course?
The Calendar now allows a list called STAT_Options in most Computing plans. Any university-level course whose main topic is statistics can be substituted for STAT-263/3.0 in the Computing programs that require STAT-263/3.0, except COMA.
All Computing programs in the Queen's Academic Calendar that include STAT_Options show all of the courses in the list.
