    Math 1123:  'P' sections of Math 1123, Math in Modern Society, will have their own course number. Rather than being a 'P' section under the course number Math 1123, the course number for the 'P' version of the course will be 'Math 1123P' and will have regular section numbers.

    Math 1143:  Math 1143, College Algebra, will offer 'P' sections, under this course number.

    Math 1153:  'P' sections of Math 1153, Statistical Reasoning (formerly 'Introduction to Statistics), will have their own course number. Rather than being a 'P' section under the course number Math 1153, the course number for the 'P' version of the course will be 'Math 1153P' and will have regular section numbers.
