Math 16A or 1A for pre-med freshmen?

<p>I'm trying to set myself up for integrative bio major/pre-med, and I was wondering which is better?</p>

<p>I'm sure there are pro's and con's for both, so it'd be nice if you could list those. Thanks in advance!</p>

<p>mcb (where most premeds are) requires the 1 series</p>

<p>not sure about ib</p>

<p>If I take 16A and B does that mean that I can't take multivariable Calc? It seems like 1B is a prerequisite for mult. variable.</p>

<p>the math department wont force prereqs. you can sign up for it but the math dept believes that 1b wont teach you enough for 53</p>

<p>premeds dont have to take 53</p>

<p>if you want to take it, i dont think that youll be at a significant diadvantage; the only part where 1b/16b material will help is when you relearn parameterization</p>

<p>Which series us supposed to be harder, 1A and B or 16A and B?</p>

<p>1 series is definitely much harder</p>

<p>all scientists and engineers have to take it (unless you pass out)</p>

<p>while 16 is more for social science majors</p>

<p>do we have to take a math if we have already satisfied the quantitative reasoning requirement?</p>

<p>depends on your major</p>

<p>babilu: if your major doesn't require it, then you will never have to take a math class again in college.</p>
