Every student must complete at least 3 units of an approved Core Mathematics course. Many majors require specific courses; therefore, students should review the Silver Core Mathematics section in the program description for their major and consult with an academic advisor before selecting a Core Mathematics course(s). All degreeseeking students must be continuously enrolled in appropriate mathematics courses until their Core Mathematics requirement is completed.
Core Mathematics builds a foundation for CO2, and this Core Objective is then developed in the major and integrated into the Capstone Integration & Synthesis course:
 Core Objective 2: Quantitative Reasoning. Students will be able to apply quantitative reasoning and mathematical analysis methodologies to understand and solve problems.
Depending on placement, students may have to take additional prerequisite courses. Accuplacer placement and testing information is available at http://www.unr.edu/mathcenter/placement.html.
