Registering for Classes

You will be registering for classes during your Summer Orientation session. Here are a few helpful pointers regarding the Andrews courses (for all other questions, please speak with your academic advisor).

Critical Encounters I (Required)

All EHP first years are required to take EHON 1151 during their fall semester. There are three sections being offered, and at least one should work with your schedule. You will be able to search for this class in the registration system and add it to your schedule. This class fulfills your undergraduate humanities requirement.

Andrews Calculus Courses

Sections of Calc 1, 2, and 3 will be offered in Andrews Hall (ANDS)/Kitt Central (LRVN) for Andrews students only. You may take one of these courses, or you may opt to take the same course in the engineering center (the material/pace is the same), whatever works best with your schedule and is open. The Andrews-only sections are denoted by the section number 549R. So when you register, you can search for any of the following:

APPM 1350-549R – Calculus 1 for Engineers
APPM 1360-549R – Calculus 2 for Engineers
APPM 2350-549R – Calculus 3 for Engineers

Regarding Placement

You will be pre-enrolled in a calculus course based on your Mathematical Skill Assessment score.If you score 61-75, you’ll be automatically enrolled in APPM 1235 – Precalculus for Engineers. If you are placed in APPM 1235 and are not happy with this, you can do some precalc studying on your own or through the ALEKS software and then retake the ALEKS placement. You must score 76 or above to be placed into Calc 1. There is no other way (at the present time) to challenge this.
If you score 76 or above, you’ll be automatically enrolled in APPM 1350 – Calculus 1 for Engineers. If you are placed into APPM 1350, but would prefer Calc 2 or 3, then you must have some type of college or AP credit for Calc 1. To decide if you should skip a calculus class, visit the exam archives and take the final (one that has solutions posted) of whatever calc class you would like to skip. Give yourself about 2.5 hours, no calculator or notes. Then grade yourself. If you are comfortable with the material and would have done well on the actual final, you’re ready to move to the next class.

Advice from Professor Anne Dougherty, Associate Chair of the Department of Applied Mathematics:

We want you to be honest with yourselves and place yourselves appropriately. We would much rather have you get a solid foundation rather than move on to the next level before you are ready. Also, please note that that there is no review given at the start of the next class (i.e. Calc 3 has no review for Calc 1 or 2; it starts immediately with new material).
