Math 132 Getting Started
1. Course requires a C or better in MA 121, 131, or equivalent.
2. It is best to take the class as soon as you can after Calculus,
but we have enrollment caps, so it's hard to get in! The class is
offered fall, spring, and summer I and II. If you are a graduating
senior, and need the course to graduate, go talk to Dr. Griggs in SAS
2108, and he will get you in.
Otherwise, keep trying MyPack. The instructor can't override MyPack.
