AP Calculus and math courses

<p>UCLA</a> Department of Mathematics</p>

<p>I was looking at that site, and was wondering what it meant when it says, for example, "Credit for 4 units of Calculus." How would those credits be used if they don't even give you credit for a whole math course? How many units is a typical math course? </p>

<p>Since UCLA uses a quarter system, how does that work with choosing courses? Let's say I end up in 31A. I'm assuming that lasts one quarter. What would my math class be the next quarter? 31B? And then 31C the next quarter?</p>

<p>Thank you.</p>

<p>EDIT: Eh, may as well ask this since I'm here already: What is the typical course load for a first-year student at UCLA?</p>

<p>31A --> 31B --> 32A --> 32B and/or 33A and/or 33B</p>

<p>The "Credit for 4 units of Calculus" are just generic credits. They still help you a bit since they count for class standing and could allow you to enroll in courses before people with lower class standing.</p>

<p>For example, you need 45 units to be considered a sophomore. If you did say 14 units for 3 quarters you'd only have 42 units and enroll with the other people with freshman status. Those 4 extra units would push you to 47 so you'd enroll ahead of the people with freshman status.</p>
