Basic Math Skills (R1) Exemption Test TONIGHT!

The Basic Math Skills (R1) Exemption Test is tonight (Monday, September 10) at 6:30pm in Marcus 131.

The R1 requirement can no longer be satisfied through the Math Placement Exam. Passing the R1 exam (at least 12 out of 20 correct) will satisfy the R1 requirement for graduation but will not result in the awarding of any credits. There are, however, credit courses that will also satisfy the R1 requirement.

A student ID and a #2 pencil are required. A calculator is recommended. There is no limit on the number of times a student may take this test. The focus of this exam is to measure knowledge of basic math skills. Topics include:
  • perimeter, area, volume
  • linear equations
  • averages
  • fractions
  • ratios
  • percent increase and decrease
  • interpreting graphs and tables
  • compound interest
Results will be posted within four class days of giving the exam.
