## Math 272 (E3158) & Math 372 (E3854) -- Spring 2017

Math 272 & Math 372 will meet together
Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays 1:15pm-2:30pm in room SC202. |

**Math 272 & Math 372 College Arithmetic:**

**This class is a combination of Math 272 students and Math 372 students.**

- Math 272 is -0- units. Math 372 is 4 units. Both are College Arithmetic courses.
- There is
__no difference in the mathematical content__for Math 272 compared to Math 372 -- All students should have the same learning experience.

**Main Reason for offering both:**- Some students really need the units (for various reasons) and cannot afford to spend time learning Math 272 (at -0- units) if they also have to carry a certain unit load -- so they really need this math class to have units with it.
- But some students do not need the units, and would much rather take the class without paying $184 for it -- so the Math 272 non-credit alternative works fine for them.

**If you want to switch . . .**- Students can switch out of Math 372 into Math 272 by adding Math 272 and dropping Math 372 in WebAdvisor.
- Students who started in 272 might not be able to drop 272, but they can certainly
__add Math 372__in WebAdvisor to get the units. .__All adding and dropping should be done within the first week of the semester__

**Materials you will need for this class.**

[1] REQUIRED: Textbook (get it at the library)Required Textbook:
,Basic College Mathematicsby Margaret Lial, Stanley Salzman, and Diana Hestwood (7th edition), available used at Amazon ISBN-13: 978-0321257802 ISBN-10: 0321257804 Students who are registered can check out a copy from the CR Library for use during the whole semester.
