Both math courses are very basic, introductory-level courses that you should do well in. Having said that, I (and many of my friends) found 1228 to be MUCH easier. I got 100% on the first two exams :P. However.. I took 1229 FIRST, and it was my first year, first semester at UWO, so say what you want about first-year jitters ..but I did very well in both lol

Here's both course descriptions :)


Mathematics 1228A/B - Methods of Finite Mathematics
Permutations and combinations; probability theory. This course is intended primarily for students in the Social Sciences, but may meet minimum requirements for some Biological or Basic Medical Sciences modules.
Antirequisite(s): Mathematics 2124A/B, 2155A/B, Statistical Sciences 2035, 2141A/B, 2857A/B, the former Mathematics 031, the former Statistical Sciences 2657A.
Prerequisite(s): One or more of Ontario Secondary School MCV4U, MHF4U, MDM4U, Mathematics 0110A/B, 1225A/B, 1229A/B, the former Mathematics 017a/b, the former Ontario Secondary School MGA4U, MCB4U.
Corequisite(s):
Pre-or Corequisite(s):
Extra Information: 3 lecture hours, 0.5 course.


Mathematics 1229A/B - Methods of Matrix Algebra
Matrix algebra including vectors and matrices, linear equations, determinants. This course is intended primarily for students in the Social Sciences, but may meet minimum requirements for some Biological or Basic Medical Sciences modules.

Sorry, and also those were the only two first year maths I took.. can't help you with the others but I was told my two were the easiest? Guess it all depends on what you like, or can do well in :)

if you want to go into finance, you have to take calculus 1000. I'd recommend Math 1229+Calc1000



I'm doing BMOS with Ivey AEO and I too want to specialize into Finance, but is Calculus really that necessary for the subject material of Finance itself?

I know Calc is a pre-req for the Finance module in BMOS, but I'm talking about Finance in Ivey-level. Do you need to know a lot of Calculus for Ivey, or is gr. 12 calc fine?

At the moment I'm taking Math 1229 and Math 1225. I'm not sure if I should take Stats and/or Calculus. In Grade 12 I did not take Data Management, but I took Calc (88%) and Functions (86%), which Math courses do you recommend me taking?

If Calculus is a big part of Finance in general and for Ivey, I'll take it, unless Methods of Calculus (1225) will suffice. I just don't see how finding the derivative or integral would help me in consulting or corporate finance.

I also was thinking about Calc + Math 1229, but they are both offered first semester, which would ruin my whole schedule. Calc is offered semester two, but at times that don't fit in with my schedule, and I was told not to take Calc in semester 2 because the exams are less predictable and therefore harder.

Lastly, my other main problem is Econometrics. I know Calc is a pre-req for this course, and I was wondering if anyone has taken this course and if it is useful or helpful in business. I heard it's basically Economics with a lot of formulas and math, and it's relatively difficult.

If anyone could help me clear all this help so I can choose the right courses, I would greatly, greatly appreciate it. However, my first priority will always be maintaining that 80% average, too.
