If you have to take Calculus but aren't sure where you should start, use the chart below to figure out which math course is right for you:
|In high school I took…||Look at...|
|Algebra and Trigonometry but struggled and wouldn’t feel comfortable jumping into Calculus without a review.||Math 1150|
|Algebra and Trigonometry or a precalculus course and did pretty well.||Math 1210
See course description below
|Calculus I and/or scored a 3 or better on either the Advanced Placement Calculus AB exam or Calculus BC exam.||Math 1310|
|Calculus I and II (or one year of college Calculus) and/or scored a 4 or 5 on the BC Calculus Advanced Placement Exam.||Math 2210|
If none of these categories sound like you or you're still not sure, read the brief course descriptions below.
You may also want to look at our AP credit policies.
|Math 1150/1160||Long Calculus: This is a 2-semester sequence that begins with a review of algebra and trigonometry then covers all of Calculus I (Math 121) at a slower pace.|
|Math 1210||Calculus I: This is a standard 1-semester Calculus I course.
|Math 1310||Consolidated Calculus: This is a 1-semester course that begins with a 3-week review of Calculus I, then covers all of Calculus II.|
|Math 2210||Calculus III This is a 1-semester course in several variables calculus.|
