MATH1MPT
Mathematics Placement Test


CRN: 58009
Instructor(s): TBA


Description
The MPT (Math Placement Test) is a diagnostic of basic skills in mathematics administered by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. It has been carefully designed by mathematics educators to measure levels of competence in specific core areas of mathematics covered in grade school -- arithmetic of integers, rational numbers, and reals, algebraic expressions, trigonometry, basic geometry, and simple functions. The test consists of 100 multiple-choice questions, in 20 topics/areas, broken down into five questions each. Your MPT score is used to determine the math courses for which you have the prerequisite knowledge to succeed.
