Physics and Astronomy-Physics majors are required to have credit for Math 161 and 163.
Students with AP credit for Math 161 (see Colgate's AP credit policy here
) are exempted from taking that course, but are encouraged
to take Math 162, 214, or 308 in addition to the required Math 163.
Math 162 is ordinarily a pre-requisite for Math 163, but students enrolled in Physics 232 can request that the Math Department waive this requirement.
