Math Milestones

Math Milestones will be entered into student records as follows:


Math Milestone    

Courses/Workshop students can register in

LEVEL2

Math 140, Math 150/152, Math 160, Stat 212, Stat 213

LEVEL1

Math 104, Stat 113, Math 124, Math 12550

10100

Math 10100

101EN Online Immersion Workshop to Place in Math Milestone 10100

 

Math Milestones authorize students to take the math courses listed above.  Transfer students, non-degree students and current Hunter students who wish to take a math/stat course that requires a Math Milestone must take the Hunter College Mathematics Placement Test (MPT) long before they register.

Students can appeal their Math Milestone by filling out an application form that contains all their math history. Applications with instructions to appeal a Math Milestone placement can be downloaded from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics web site and found here: Application to Appeal a Math Milestone

Who Doesn’t Need a Math Milestone?

There are two math courses with no prerequisites that can be used to satisfy the Hunter College Core Requirement in Math and Quantitative Reasoning (MQR Core) without taking the MPT:

Math 10000 Basic Structures of Mathematics, 3 credits, 3 hours

Math 10200 Mathematics and Everyday Life, 3 credits, 3 hours

All other mathematics and statistics courses have prerequisites that can be satisfied by an appropriate Math Milestone.

For entering freshmen, a score of 4 or higher on an AP Calculus AB or Calculus BC Test is equivalent to Math Milestone LEVEL2. Students who score a 4 or higher will earn credit for calculus. Students, who have taken an AP Calculus AB or Calculus BC Test but do not yet know their score, need to make application for a Math Milestone to establish their prerequisite structure.

Transfer students need to officially establish course equivalency for all prerequisite mathematics and statistics courses required by the courses they need to take.

Although CLEP exams are not given credit, they can be used to establish equivalency with prerequisites (see a math advisor for details if you have taken a CLEP math exam).

For most students, Math Milestones will be on target. However, if you have reason to believe the results do not reflect your background and history of achievements in mathematics, there is an appeal process that you can initiate. You will be required to fill out an appeal form, attach a copy of your high school transcript and a transcript of any college math you have taken.
