No one continues with vectors unless you're going into Math or Engineering.

So no.

To answer your second question, you must first write the Calculus Preperatory Exam (CPE) online before you choose your math/calc course for first year.

They use the data to see how people are doing, and to give recommendations on which one to take. You could cheat if you wanted to, but they suggest you don't and there's no need to. And you don't have to follow their recommendations.

MA129 is the easiest math/calc course, it is supposedly INSANELY easy if you've taken high school calculus. There is MA 103 which is a bit harder. And then there is MA110, which is a 1.0/full credit, and is fairly difficult for most people. You need a 70 on the CPE I think to take MA110. So you could cheat on the CPE and get above a 70 and take MA110 but what sense would that make?

Dear EastSideBoyz,

Linear algebra is part of curriculum for many business programs, and although little different from vectors, they are essentially the same idea. I believe McGill Management and Queen's Commerce students take linear algebra course in their first year, and the concepts are applied in upper year courses such as Strategy, Managerial Economics, and Quantitative Marketing.

Good luck,

Dr. B. Nazarus

You can only take one of MA129, MA103 and MA110, but MA110 is a full credit and is the full year, and as a result you can take one less non-business elective.

There is also MA130 (Mathematics for SBE students) which does not count as your math/calc course required in yr 1. You can take this with MA129, but not MA103 or MA110.

I think there is a couple other math/calc courses, you can check them out on the undergrad calendar and just make sure you look at the prerequisites and exclusions (antireqs).

You can also take courses at UW too, I don't know exactly how you go about that but they would likely have more math courses than Laurier if you're interested in that.

That would mean that Laurier students take Lin. Alg. in 2nd or 3rd year, and that would mean that Laurier students are 1~2 years behind McGill/Queen's students in their course of learning.

This goes to show the value of top business schools.

There is some in the MA129 course and more in the MA103 and even more in MA110. There is also a Linear Algebra course that you can take if you really want to.

Laurier is slightly more chill but the same opportunities are avaialble in the sense that you were referring to.
