[edit] Check back in July for placement information

NOTE: At this time, completion of the Math and AQR Placement Process will NOT be automatically recorded on the academics checklist or submitted forms pages.

[edit] Step Three: Mathematics Placement

This page will help you determine which mathematics course you should enroll in if you are interested in calculus or beyond. If you haven't already done so, please begin the Mathematics and AQR Placement Process from Step One by clicking here.

In this final step of the Mathematics and AQR Placement Process, use the tree below to determine which math course you should take, then complete the form at the bottom of the page to indicate your selection. The tree looks a bit overwhelming, but should be simple to follow.

[edit] Note: the google form for 2012 will not be active until the summer.

NOTE: If you have taken a course beyond calculus (e.g. Linear Algebra, Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations, etc), skip the tree and instead contact the Math Placement Director (math-placement@stolaf.edu).
