What is my math placement goal?

Almost all majors require at least one math course. Entry-level math courses require a certain math placement level in order to enroll. Each math placement level is associated with a math placement score:

Associated Math
Course(s) | Placement Level | Score on ALEKS
assessment |
---|---|---|

Math 010: Intermediate Algebra (non-college credit) or Math 113 Contemporary Mathematics | G | Less then 45 |

Math 114: College Mathematics and Statistics | M | 45 - 59 |

Math 115: Precalculus | P | 60-64 |

Math 117: Precalculus for Scientists and Engineers or Math 267: Integrated Calculus | S | 65-69 |

Math 221: Calculus I | B | 70-74 |

Math 241: Analytic Geometry and Calculus A | C | 75 or better |

Your math placement goal is to strive for either the preferred score or minimum score associated with your major.

Keep in mind you do not want to enroll in a math course for which you are not prepared. So, if you cannot comfortably achieve the preferred score, aim for the minimum score. If you cannot achieve the minimum score (after reviewing and taking several attempts), discuss this with your adviser either at New Student Orientation or at your next meeting.

*Do the best you can recognizing it is best to enroll in an appropriate math course aligned with your skills rather than a math course requiring more extensive math skills then you have at this time.** *

Math Placement goal by college and major

(If you score higher than the score needed for a particular math course, you can still enroll in that course. For example, you can enroll in Math 114 College Math and Statistics if your score is 70.)
