Calculus:

  • Because of the large variety of both course offerings and student backgrounds, there is a separate Calculus placement page which will assist you in determining which course is right for you

Statistics:

  • If you have taken little or no statistics , you should start in Elements of Statistics, Math 106. This course introduces the nature of statistical reasoning, graphical and descriptive statistical methods, design of experiments, sampling methods, probability, probability distributions, sampling distributions, estimation, and statistical inference.
  • If you took the AP Statistics Exam and scored 3, you may or may not be ready to take further courses in statistics. Our recommendation is that you begin in Math 106, but you may obtain permission to take more advanced courses by talking to Brad Hartlaub, hartlaub@kenyon.edu or 740-427-5405.
  • If you took the AP Statistics Exam and scored 4 or 5, you are qualified to begin in either Nonparametric Statistics (Math 216, Fall) or Data Analysis (Math 206, Spring).
  • If you took IB, A-levels, Abitur, French Baccalaureate, etc., have transfer credits from another college or university, or have any other questions, you should contact Brad Hartlaub, hartlaub@kenyon.edu or 740-427-5405.

Computer Science:

  • If you have taken little or no computer science, you should start in Introduction to Computer Programming, Math 118. This course assumes absolutely no programming background. It covers basic program structure, variables, functions, classes, strings, and arrays in the C++ programming language.
  • If you took the AP Computer Science A Exam and scored 3, you may or may not be ready to take further courses in computer science. Our recommendation is that you begin in Math 118, but you may obtain permission to take more advanced courses by talking to Noah Aydin, aydinn@kenyon.edu or 740-427-5674.
  • If you took the AP Computer Science A Exam and scored 4 or 5, you are qualified to begin in our more advanced computer science courses. There are none offered this fall, but you are encouraged to talk to Prof. Noah Aydin or Prof. Bob Milnikel about your options.
  • If you took the AP Computer Science AB exam, IB exams, A-levels, Abitur, French Baccalaureate, etc., have transfer credits from another college or university, or have any other questions, you should contact Noah Aydin (aydinn@kenyon.edu or 740-427-5674).
