Mathematics Placement

Placement in introductory undergraduate courses is determined through placement exams and advising. Here is some basic information related to these courses and to the placement process.

The same page gives a brief outline of what is covered in each course (in part "I. Course Descriptions") so you can make sure the recommendation aligns with what you think is the best course for you.

If your score on the Calculus placement exam was high enough to place you in Linear Algebra or Multivariable Calculus (Math 15a, 20a, or 22a/b), you may want to also try the placement exam for the year-long Math 22a/b sequence.
