Placement Advice

The precalculus course is available as a one-semester course (Math 115) or a two-semester course (Math 111-112). The two-semester course is slower paced and reviews some of the more rigorous algebraic topics: the one semester course is much faster and assumes that the student has a firm grasp of intermediate algebra.

Math 111/011, PRECALCULUS PART I (2 credits + 2E credits), is a course which is the first half of a two semester precalculus course. The prerequisite for Math 111 is Math 026 or a placement of CMA (Precalculus Two Semesters) on the Rutgers Placement Test in Mathematics. For administrative reasons, students are also automatically registered for section 1 of Math 011. A student passing this course should be ready for Math 112/012, the second half of precalculus.

Math 112/012, PRECALCULUS PART II (2 credits + 2E credits), is a course which is the second half of a two semester precalculus course. (Only students who have passed Math 111 may register for Math 112.) For administrative reasons, students are automatically registered for section 1 of Math 012. A student passing this course and Math 111/011 should be ready for Calculus I.

Math 115, PRECALCULUS COLLEGE MATHEMATICS (4 Credits), is a standard one semester precalculus course. The prerequisite for Math 115 is Math 026 or a placement of PCA (Precalculus One Semester) on the Rutgers Placement Test in Mathematics. A student passing this course should be ready for Calculus I.
