# Placement With No Prior Calculus

#### Calculus Options:

- If your precalculus skills are strong (700 or higher on math SAT for example) then you can take MAT103.
- If your precalculus knowledge is rusty or if it has gaps, you can start in MAT100.
- If you are unsure, sign up for MAT103 at a time when MAT100 is offered, so that you can switch down if necessary.

#### Other Options:

- The math department regularly offers special courses that aim to give a serious introduction to mathematical reasoning to students whose primary interests are in non-quantitative disciplines. We try to offer at least one such course every academic year, usually in the spring, depending on staff availability. Check the Registrar's
*Course Offerings*for more specific information about general interest Quantitative Reasoning courses. To see descriptions for past courses of this type check out MAT199 or MAT190 or MAT189. - Students with a strong background in mathematics can fulfill the Quantitative Reasoning requirement with MAT214 for a change from calculus/analysis.
