Introductory Calculus Sequences
The Mathematics Department offers two versions of secondsemester calculus: MATH 112L and MATH 122L. MATH 112L was designed to follow MATH 111L (or the MATH 105L/106L sequence) as our standard, laboratorybased Calculus II course. A labcalculus version of Calculus II (MATH 122L) is intended for students with AP credit for MATH 21. (Fall 2020  students continuing from 106L or 111L should take 122L, as 112L is not offered.)

NOTE: * In fall semesters, MATH 112L is reserved for continuing students who have taken MATH 106L or MATH 111L. In spring semesters MATH 112L will be the only secondsemester calculus course offered and will be open to any students with AP credit for MATH 21 or Duke credit for MATH 106L or 111L.

Overview Courses Without Prerequisities

NOTE: Major Requirements: These indications are just a guide; the precise requirements for these majors are in the Bulletin. Students who hope to skip any math course should be sure to consider carefully the math requirements of their likely majors, minors, and certificate plans. Those math requirements are overseen and enforced by those departments – not the Department of Mathematics. Enrollment in and successful completion of a higher level course CANNOT be assumed to satisfy a requirement of a lower level course, and very often it will not. You must get written permission from the Director of Undergraduate Studies of the appropriate department before you skip any such required course.
NOTE: Prerequisite Requirement: Beginning in Spring 2016, enrollment in Math 202 or Math 212 requires credit for second semester calculus (Math 22, 112L, 122L, or 122) on your Duke transcript.
