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 either MAT102 or MAT103
  • If your precalculus knowledge is rusty or if it has gaps, you can start in MAT100.

Other Options:

  • Check out MAT199 or MAT190 or MAT189.  These courses aim to give a serious introduction to mathematical reasoning to students whose primary interest is in a non-quantitative field.  We try to offer one of these courses every spring semester, depending on staff availability.  Next spring we tentatively plan to offer MAT199.  Check the Registrar's Course Offerings for the spring (published in the preceding fall semester) to confirm.
