  Newark Undergraduate Catalog 2020-2022 School of Arts and Sciences-Newark Newark College of Arts and Sciences Academic Requirements Quantitative Reasoning  

Quantitative Reasoning

The Newark College of Arts and Science's  learning objectives require that students be able to think quantitatively. All students must therefore demonstrate competency in quantitative reasoning by completing at least 3 credits in one of the following courses with a grade of C or better:

  • Math 106, Mathematics for Liberal Arts
  • Math 107, College Algebra for the Humanities
  • Math 109, College Algebra for the Physical Sciences
  • Math 114, Precalculus
  • Math 119, Applied Calculus
  • Math 135, Calculus
  • Any higher-level mathematics course offered by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science

All incoming freshmen take a placement test to determine their eligibility to enroll in mathematics classes. Those who do not place into any of these classes will be enrolled in the appropriate class to prepare them to complete one of the required courses.

All incoming students must take a mathematics course each semester until the quantitative reasoning requirement is met. Mathematics courses must be taken sequentially. Once any math course is successfully completed with a grade of C or better, a student cannot repeat the same course or take a lower-level math course for degree credit.
