  48. Math Placement Math Placement Testing for New Transfer Students Math placement testing is a tool to help insure that new students are taking the appropriate math class. There are two math placement tests: algebra and trigonometry. Students who need testing should be referred to http://braintrax.mst.edu/ to brush up on their skills before the test.

  49. Math Placement Testing Guidelines for Engineering, Math, Science, and Computer Science Majors Follow these guidelines for any major that requires Math 008 or 014. Students who have completed the equivalent of Calculus II with a grade of C or better ARE NOT REQUIRED TO TEST. Students who will have completed the equivalent of Calculus I with a grade of C or better by the time they transfer to S&T and DO NOT have AP or college credit for trig ARE REQUIRED TO TAKE THE TRIG PLACEMENT TEST ONLY. Other students must take both the algebra and trigonometry placement tests. (Note: Low grades in Calculus I or II may indicate problems with algebra or trig skills. Math placement scores can help the advisor to better advise the student.) If a student who requires math testing has never taken a trigonometry class and has no trig background, the student MAY CHOOSE to not take the trigonometry test and, consequently, will be required to take trig (Math 6) at Missouri S&T. The student must still take the algebra test.

  50. Math Placement Testing Guidelines for IST, Business, Economics Majors Students who have completed the equivalent of Business Calculus (Math 012) ARE NOT REQUIRED TO TEST. Other students must take ONLY THE ALGEBRA TEST. Testing Guidelines for Other Majors Follow these guidelines for any major that does not require calculus or business calculus.   History, English, psychology, majors do not need placement testing as new students. Students who have completed the equivalent of College Algebra (Math 004) or a higher math course with a grade of C or better ARE NOT REQUIRED TO TEST. Others must take ONLY THE ALGEBRA TEST. Again, when advising “exploratory” students, be careful to keep their options open by choosing a math sequence that could lead to Calculus 1
