  2. If you are registered in Physics 1050, you must also be registered in Mathematics 1000 (not 1090). If you are registered in Physics 1051, you must also be registered in Mathematics 1001. You will be required to complete Physics 1051. If you complete Physics 1050 with at least 50% or Physics 1020 with at least 70%, you should take Physics 1051.
  3. If you are not able to register for Chemistry 1050 in the fall semester, you can take Chemistry 1010 in the fall, Chemistry 1050 in the winter semester, and Chemistry 1051 in the spring Semester. Students attending Grenfell Campus will normally complete Chemistry 1200/1001 in their first year.
