Statistics 3,4,5 3 STAT 269 (enroll in STAT 291)**
* Mathematics majors are required to take the PHYS 211/212 sequence rather than PHYS  201/202.  However, if a student in the mathematics major receives AB credit for both PHYS 201 and PHYS 202, the PHYS 211/212 requirements are waived.

** AP Statistics is not a calculus-based course or exam.  Mathematics majors who receive AP credit for Statistics are still required to take STAT 291 for the major requirement.  Exceptions may be made for strong students, in consultation with their academic advisor in the first year.
