Math Placement Tests (MPT)

    The Math Placement Test is required from all applicants according to the following criteria:

    • The Math I Placement Test is required from all candidates following the Arts and Business majors, and candidates following the Information Communications Technology (ICT) major
    • Math II Placement Test is required from all candidates following the Sciences majors

    The syllabus of the Math Level I Placement Test (one hour) covers the following:
    • Fractions & their properties
    • Parallel & perpendicular lines and their properties
    • First degree equations and word problems involving one or two unknowns
    • Properties of multiplication and addition: commutative, associative and distributive laws
    • Evaluating expressions
    • Triangles: length of sides and measures of angles
    • Averages and percentages
    • Areas and perimeters of triangles, squares, rectangles, and trapezoids

    The syllabus of the Math Level II Placement Test (two hours) covers the following:
    • Polynomials: operations on polynomials (+,-,*,/), factoring & finding zeroes of polynomials
    • Linear and quadratic equations: solutions and graphing
    • Complex numbers
    • Systems of equations and inequalities
    • Exponential and Logarithmic functions
    • Trigonometry: identities and equations
    • Matrices (operations, determinants, and inverses)
    • Functions: domains and ranges
    • Sequences: geometric and algebraic
    • Series
    • Derivatives and applications
    • Integrals: definite and indefinite integrals
    • Probability, statistics, and combinations
    • Areas of triangles, squares, rectangles; surface areas of three-dimensional trapezoids and spheres
    • Sets and operations with sets (union, intersection, complemented)
    • Conic sections

    Candidates who do not obtain the minimum required scores on the Math Placement Tests will be placed in the appropriate math courses according to the following table:
