Recommended routes to Math 1310 or (1340 and 1350),

Calculus and Analytic Geometry I

1280 - 1310 for the well-prepared, motivated, and mature student (these are both five-hour courses)

1280 - 1340 - 1350 for the well-prepared student who needs a less intense calculus course spread over two semesters

1220 - 1280 - 1340 - 1350 for the typical student who places into Math 1220.  Math 1280 is a five-hour course, but only three of those hours count toward graduation because of the overlap in topics with 1220.
