The friends and professors I’ve had so far have been absolutely amazing, and most of them start to feel more like family; it’s hard to feel alone at Mount.

Mathematics Placement Exam

At the University of Mount Union, incoming students are required to take a mathematics placement test known as the COMPASS test. This test will place the student into one of four levels. The following course sequences will be required to meet the mathematics proficiency component of general education for levels 1, 2, and 3. Students testing into Level 4 will already have met the mathematics proficiency requirement.

  1. Level 1 Students: MTH 100 (Intermediate Algebra) and then one of the following options:
    1. MTH 121 (Data Analysis), or
    2. MTH 105 (College Algebra) and MTH 120 (Precalculus), or
    3. MTH 105 (College Algebra) and MTH 123 (Elementary Statistics)
    4. MTH 105 (College Algebra) and MTH 125 (Elementary Discrete Math)
  2. Level 2 Students: Must complete one of the four options:
    1. MTH 105 (College Algebra) and MTH 120 (Precalculus), or
    2. MTH 105 (College Algebra) and MTH 123 (Elementary Statistics), or
    3. MTH 105 (College Algebra) and MTH 125 (Elementary Discrete Math), or
    4. MTH 121 (Data Analysis).
  3. Level 3 Students: Must complete any one of the following options:
    1. MTH 120 (Precalculus)
    2. MTH 121 (Data Analysis)
    3. MTH 123 (Elementary Statistics)
    4. MTH 125 (Elementary Discrete Math)
  4. Level 4 Students: Mathematics Proficiency Requirement completed. If further mathematics courses are required or desired, then any of the following courses may be taken: MTH 120 (Precalculus), MTH 123 (Elementary Statistics), MTH 125 (Elementary Discrete Math), MTH 141 (Calculus I), MTH 142* (Calculus II), or MTH 241* (Calculus III).

 

*Students who already have earned credit for Calculus I and/or Calculus II only, or permission of the Department of Mathematics.
