POLICIES OF THE DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES

STUDENTS WHO DO NOT ATTEND CLASS (including discussions) or contact the instructor during the first week of classes may be administratively dropped from the course.

All course prerequisites are enforced in MTHSTAT 215. Students on waiting lists and students who attempt to add or change sections after Open Enrollment should be prepared to show proof of prerequisites in the first week of classes. Math advisors are available in the Department of Mathematical Sciences to help students with prerequisite verification problems. Students are encouraged to consult with them during the first week of classes.

Valid placement codes for MthStat 215 are A+, A & B.

MATHEMATICS PLACEMENT LEVELS AND PLACEMENT CODE

Changes Effective October 1, 2003.

The table below should be used to compute Math Placement Levels for all students
testing on or after October 1, 2003.

MATH PLACEMENT LEVEL A+. Any of the following:
A Math Placement Test Code of 45;
A score of 4 or 5 on the AP AB calculus exam;
A score of 3 or higher on the AP BC calculus exam;
A score of 5 or higher on the IB Mathematics - HL;
A Math Placement Test Code of 40 and a score of 30 or higher on the Mathematics
portion of the ACT;
A grade of A- or higher in both Math 116 and Math 117.
(Level A+ OK for Math 341, 231, 221, 214, 211, 205, 175, and MthStat 215.)

MATH PLACEMENT LEVEL A. Any of the following:
A Math Placement Test Code of 40;
A score of 61 or higher on the CLEP Precalculus Exam;
A grade of C or better in both Math 116 and Math 117;
A grade of C or better in Math 211 and Math 117;
A grade of C or better in Math 116 and Placement Test Code 36;
A grade of C or better in Math 211 and Placement Test Code 36;
A grade of C or better in Math 117 and Placement Test Code 35.
(Level A OK for Math 341, 231, 214, 211, 205, 175, and MthStat 215.)

MATH PLACEMENT LEVEL AB. Any of the following:
Math Placement Test Code 37;
Math Placement Test Code 26 and B or better in Math 105.
(Level AB OK for Math 214, 211, 205, 175, 117, 116, and MthStat 215.)




Please note: The College of Letters & Science charges an additional special course fee for Distance Education (online) sections. These sections can be distinguished by a section number beginning with 2-- (e.g., 201, 202). If the special course fee is not listed in the Schedule of Classes, please contact Andy Cuneo, L&S Student Academic Services, via e-mail, acuneo@uwm.edu, or phone (414) 229-2787.
