Freshman-level calculus courses include:
- MATH 112, Calculus of Functions of One Variable I
- MATH 115, Calculus of Functions of One Variable II
- MATH 116, Mathematical Models in the Biosciences I: Calculus Techniques
- MATH 118, Introduction to Functions of Several Variables
- MATH 120, Calculus of Functions of Several Variables
To register for MATH 112, 115, or 120 you must first complete the mathematics online placement examination described below. Results of the exam will be combined with Advanced Placement test scores to determine a placement recommendation. Placement at an appropriate level will give you the best opportunity to succeed in a calculus course.
The online placement exam is available beginning in early July. In order to take the exam, follow the Placement Exam link under Undergrad Programs on the Mathematics department Web site. After you complete the exam, print out or save the results. Bring the printout of your exam, or a device to display your saved exam, and any other pertinent information (such as AP scores) to the calculus placement advising session during Freshman Orientation. Times and places will be listed on the departmental Web site and in the Calendar for the Opening Days. A departmental adviser will discuss with you the results of the assessment and your calculus experience and will recommend an appropriate placement level for you.
