Math Placement

Your math class is a prerequisite for many other courses that are required for your degree. For most majors at Michigan Tech, it is ideal to start in calculus.

The online ALEKS Placement Assessment covers materials from basic math through precalculus and is designed to identify which math class you are best suited to start in.
