Math requirements for all students

To earn a degree from UVa-Wise a student must complete six semester hours in mathematics. Entering students who have not completed this requirement are required to take a mathematics placement test administered by the department. Students may begin their study of mathematics with MTH 1000, 1010, 1020, 1110, 1150, 1210 or 2040; however, if deficiencies are identified, students are required to satisfactorily complete MTH 0900 before registering for a 100-level mathematics course. MTH 0900 is a non-degree credit course. The department recommends the appropriate placement determined by the following criteria: Students in computer lab

  1. The student’s SAT or ACT scores;
  2. The student’s high school record;
  3. The student’s score on the Mathematics Placement Exam.

MTH 3010 and 3020 do not satisfy general education requirements.

A 1000-level course, with the exceptions of MTH 1020 and MTH 1180, may not be taken for credit after a 2000- or higher level course has been completed successfully. A student cannot receive credit for both MTH 1000 and MTH 1010; however, a student who receives a grade of C- or lower in MTH 1010 may take MTH 1000 for credit and the grade in MTH 1000 will replace the grade in MTH 1010. Neither MTH 1000 nor MTH 1010 may be taken for credit after either MTH 1110 or MTH 1120 has been completed successfully. MTH 111 cannot be used in conjunction with MTH 1000/1010 to complete the General education requirements in Mathematics.

Students who place into MTH 1120 and complete the course with a C or better will also receive credit for MTH 1110. Those who do not get a C or better are advised to take MTH 1110 before repeating MTH 1210. Students who place into MTH 1150 and complete the course with a C or better will also receive credit for MTH 1010.

Students who place into MTH 2040 and complete the course with a C or better will also receive credit for MTH 1110 and MTH 1120. Students who score a 4 or 5 on the AB Advanced Placement Examination in Calculus and students who score a 3 on the BC Advanced Placement Examination in Calculus will receive credit for MTH 2040 and will be placed into MTH 2050. Students who score a 4 or 5 on the BC Advanced Placement Examination in Calculus will receive credit for both MTH 2040 and 2050.
