First Semester Course Scheduling Instructions School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS, e-school) The Standard Schedule: The following schedule is strongly recommended for all first-year e-school students except Rodman scholars and students who have received advanced placement or transfer credit for some of the courses. Students taking the standard schedule should choose one of the standard schedules A-L, unless you have special circumstances preventing you from doing so, in which case you should use schedule M, N, or O. Fall Semester APMA 111 Single Variable Calculus 4 credits CHEM 151 Intro College Chemistry 3 CHEM 151L Chem Lab I 1 *ENGR 162 Intro to Engineering 4 TCC 101 Lang Comm & Tech Soc 3 * (Note: you have to register separately for two components: lab and workshop) Rodman Substitutions: Rodman Scholars will register for ENGR 141R and TCC 200R in place of ENGR 162 and TCC 101, and will add PHYS 142R. Complete your schedule on Rodman schedule R. Those Rodman scholars without credit for TCC 101 may take the course or substitute an approved HSS elective in a later semester. APMA 111 (calculus II) or APMA 109 (calculus I): Students should take APMA 109, which includes a rigorous review of topics in algebra and trigonometry, in place of APMA 111 if they: a) did not take AP calculus in high school, b) obtained a 1 or 2 on the AB AP test, or c) achieved a score of < 550 on the SAT1M or SAT2M. Select one of the standard schedules A-L and substitute the corresponding section of APMA 109 for APMA 111. All students will take an algebra/trigonometry diagnostic test during fall orientation on Monday, August 25 at 1, 2, or 3 p.m. in Mechanical Engineering Room 205. This test will be used to advise students on whether to take APMA 111 or APMA 109. Approximately two weeks into the fall semester all students in APMA 111 will be tested, and those who demonstrate weaknesses in algebra and trigonometry will be encouraged to switch to APMA 109. Exceptions to the Standard Schedule: Use schedule M, N, or O. You may have to cross out the course which you are replacing. Students with credit for APMA 111 will take APMA 212. Advance standing credit for APMA 111 is earned by scoring a 5 on the calculus BC advanced placement exam. Students who qualify for credit for APMA 111 but are unsure of their skills may take a calculus placement test for advice on whether they should consider retaking the course here. This calculus test will be required to confirm credit for IB courses and dual enrollment calculus I and II courses taken in the student’s high school. (Two semesters of transfer credit will be required to receive credit for APMA 111 as it is equivalent to calculus II in most calculus sequences.) Students who are not exempt from APMA 111 by virtue of AP scores or college transfer credit may take the calculus test to gain exemption. Students 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
