Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

A while ago you answered a question about the questionable numbering of Math 112, 113, and 119. Well, there is more questionable numbering in the Math department: Math 343, Elementary Linear Algebra, is meant to be taken before, and is in fact a prerequisite for, lower-numbered classes such as Math 214, Math 315, and probably others. Why is this? Does the Math department just want to confuse us all?

- Chris

A:
Dear Chris,

Yeah. Hello? Um, it's THE MATH DEPARTMENT. Those calcualator toting, graph paper carrying, equation solving jerks make a pretty good living confusing us all.
