Background and Goals: 

Math 222 is the second course in the standard Calculus series at UW Madison, Math 221-222-234. This series is designed for students in the Sciences and Engineering. Depending on their major, students in the School of Business might be asked to take 211-213 instead of 221-222. Honors students interested in a theoretical approach should consider the Honors sequence 275-276-375-376 instead.

Students in the School of Business are sometimes asked to take 211-213 instead of 221-222 as part of their major requirements. Math 276 is a theoretical version of Math 222 and it is aimed at Honors students.
