University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) students have new options for meeting one of their general education requirements.
UNO’s Math General Education requirement has been renamed the University General Education Quantitative Literacy Requirement and two new courses now count toward completion, bringing the total up to four:
- MATH 1120 Introduction to Mathematical and Computational Thinking
- MATH 1130 Quantitative Literacy (NEW)
- MATH 1220 College Algebra
- MATH 1530 Introduction to Applied Probability and Statistics (NEW)
The change is the result of a decision by UNO’s General Education Committee.
All students will still be required to meet any additional math requirement and/or math prerequisites in their program of study. It is essential that students discuss future academic plans with an advisor PRIOR to registering for a math course to determine whether they should take MATH 1220 (College Algebra) or if one of the alternatives is appropriate.
Current UNO students’ academic records will be automatically updated to reflect the credit if the students have taken one of the courses above or an equivalent transfer course.
This change does not impact any student who has already fulfilled their UNO General Education Quantitative Literacy requirement.
The revised requirement will ensure all UNO graduates are competent in use of mathematical, computational or statistical methods to solve real-world problems, draw inferences and justify conclusions.
