Which majors explicitly require college Math courses ?

Middle School Math skills include:  exponents, negative numbers, fractions, ratios, proportions, decimals, percents, and general numerical sense.

High school Algebra skills include:  symbolic notation, manipulating expressions, formulas & variables, solving equations, probability, XY plane graphing, etc.

These basic skills are the sine qua non of college Math courses.  Statistics and Economics require Algebra skills since they are replete with data, formulas, equations, and graphing.  In addition, Calculus also requires Geometry and Trigonometry skills.  

Which majors have a college math requirement? Schools will vary, but here is a random sampling from one or two well respected universities:

  • Statistics 

  • Statistics
  • Calculus I
  • Statistics
  • Economics 

  • Calculus I
