Math Placement Test Scoring
A computerized test will be used to determine the level at which the student is prepared to begin the study of mathematics. Scores are available immediately following the test session.
Scores Used for Math Course Placement
|Score Level||Mathematics Course|
|1||MATH090 Fundamentals of Mathematics|
|3||MATH095 Basic Algebra|
|5||MATH103 Intermediate Algebra or MATH110 Mathematics for Technology I or MATH101 Mathematical Concepts I MGMT120 Business Mathematics|
MATH 102 Mathematics for Educators I MATH115 Elementary Statistics or MATH117 Finite Mathematics for Business or MATH120 College Algebra
|8||MATH122 Trigonometry and Analytic Geometry|
|11||MATH140 Calculus I|
Liberal arts majors may take MATH101. MATH103 or MATH101 can be used as a prerequisite for MATH115.
MATH105 is Mathematics for Educators II. The prerequisite for this class is MATH102.
MATH117 is not a preparation for calculus. It is for students in majors in business, biology, information science, and social science.
Students are not permitted to register for a course higher than the score level indicates but may register for lower level courses.
