Interpreting the College-Level Mathematics Score
Score of 95 or above:
A student scoring in this range will be automatically placed into Calculus I during the first semester at MMA.*
*Note: Any student wishing to enroll in the Energy Systems Engineering major must enroll in Calculus I in the first semester
Score below 95:
All students scoring less than 95 will be placed in Algebra/Trigonometry. The following requirements apply to students enrolled in this course:
The course must be passed and is a prerequisite for participation in sea term.
The course must be passed by the end of a student’s second semester or the student will not be permitted to enroll for a third semester.
Recommendations and Requirements
Scores between 40 and 94:
Many students in this score range still find Algebra/Trigonometry challenging and benefit from remedial work and tutoring. By no means does such a score guarantee success in the course. All students are urged to seek out those resources available at MMA to support students enrolled in Algebra/Trigonometry. These resources include supplemental computerized mathematics instruction (ALEKS) and no-cost tutoring at the Academy’s Academic Resource Center.
Scores below 40:
With a score of less than 40, a student is considered in need of mathematics remediation. Historical data show that students scoring less than 40 have a significantly reduced chance of performing to standards in the Algebra/ Trigonometry course. Although the student will be placed in Algebra/Trigonometry, the student will find the course very challenging and will struggle to learn new concepts and skills without the benefit of having mastered those skills expected of entering college students. The student must take full advantage of the additional resources the Academy offers to help him or her succeed. Course load restrictions and mandatory tutoring (see below) will affect a student scoring less than 40 who does not successfully complete one of the following options:
