Math Placement
<p>Getting started in the correct mathematics course is important for getting a good start in engineering and computer science. We want to ensure that you get started in the highest level of mathematics at which you are prepared to succeed. The University provides engineering and computer science students with access to a system called ALEKS, which provides both placement exams and training modules for refreshing your knowledge. Using ALEKS, you can test your knowledge, identify gaps in your knowledge, study to refresh your knowledge and then retest.</p>
<p>All students should plan to use ALEKS to determine their mathematics placement. You do not need to use ALEKS if:<br /> - You took pre-calculus or calculus at a community college or four-year college and earned at least a C.<br /> - In your junior year, you took AP Calculus AB and scored at least a 3, or AP Calculus BC and scored at least a 4.</p>
<p>If you are taking AP Calculus in your senior year, you should use ALEKS for placement. Since AP Calculus scores come to us late in the summer, ALEKS will be helpful in determining your matematics placement. If we later receive AP scores that place you higher than your ALEKS scores, we will disregard the ALEKS scores.</p>
