Whether your interest is to study mathematics as a purely intellectual pursuit or as a requirement for some other program, Capilano University offers courses from preparatory algebra through second-year university level mathematics and statistics to help you realize your goals.
MATH 091 is a one credit course designed for students who need to refresh basic algebra. It serves as a prerequisite for MATH 096 (Intermediate Algebra with Functions), MATH 101 (Introduction to Statistics), and MATH 190 (Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers). MATH 096 is a two credit course that continues the development of algebra and introduces the concept of a function. It is possible to complete both MATH 091 and MATH 096 in a single term. The combined MATH 091/096 is equivalent to Principles of Math 11.
MATH 105 is a precalculus course specifically designed for students planning on taking calculus. It is recognized by post secondary institutions as a Principles of Math 12 equivalent. MATH 105 receives transfer credit at all the major universities, except UBC-Vancouver.
MATH 108 is a calculus course designed primarily for students planning to pursue a business or commerce program, whereas MATH 116 is oriented to the sciences. As enrolment permits separate engineering, life science and physical science streams of MATH 116 will be offered with each stream covering the same core content but emphasizing examples relevant to the associated applications area.
MATH 101 is an introductory statistics course designed primarily for non-science students wanting to fulfill a science elective requirement. MATH 204 is an introductory statistics course designed primarily for science students who have already completed one term of calculus.
MATH 124 is a discrete mathematics course for computing science. A strong mathematics background is recommended for students taking this as an entry course.
MATH 190 is a course designed for future elementary school teachers. A component of the term work in this course requires preparation for and participation in a SNAP Math Fair (see video) that is held on campus outside of regularly scheduled class time. Attendance at the Math SNAP Fair is MANDATORY. Students who have taken, received transfer credit for, or are currently taking MATH 108 or MATH 116 (Calculus I), may not take MATH 190 for credit without the permission of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. This course is not normally available for credit to students in science programs.
