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.
