Calculus Placement Examination
The Calculus Placement Exam is offered to students who would like to place into MATH 030, MATH 030P, MATH 030PL or MATH 071 without taking the prerequisite course (Math 019 or Math 008, respectively). See www.sjsu.edu/math/calculus/ for more information or contact the Department of Mathematics and Statistics; MacQuarrie Hall 308; 408-924-5100; firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Students who are required to take MATH 071 (Business, Aviation, etc) are exempt from taking the Calculus Placement Exam if they earned a 570 or higher on the SAT or a 23 or higher on the ACT. You must bring proof of score directly to the Department of Mathematics and Statistics Office (MacQuarrie Hall 308)
- Any student who has earned a 3 or higher on the AP Calculus AB or BC/AB Subscore already has credit for Calculus I and should enroll directly into Calculus II. (Calculus credit from the AP Calculus tests also satisfies a MATH 071 requirement.) Similarly, any student who has earned a 3 or higher on the AP Calculus BC already has credit for both Calculus I and Calculus II and should enroll directly into Calculus III.
- Entering frosh who plan to take Calculus or Business Calculus their first semester should take the Calculus Placement Exam prior to attending orientation. Exams are offered throughout the summer. An exam also is offered the morning of each orientation prior to check in. Online pre-registration is required.
- For course registration information regarding Calculus I (MATH 030, MATH 030P, and Math 030PL), MATH 060 and MATH 071 see www.sjsu.edu/math/calculus.
