Welcome to the Online Mathematics Placement Examination Project
The Online Mathematics Placement Examination Project is a joint effort by Professors James A. Sethian, Theodore A. Slaman, and W. Hugh Woodin of the Department of Mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley. Our goal is to produce on-line examinations to help UCB undergraduates choose between the various courses offered in the Mathematics Department.
At present, we have a working version of the on-line exam in place on this website. The exam consists of problems of varying degrees of difficulty. A well prepared student should expect to answer a majority of the problems correctly.
It remains to correlate performance on this exam with performance in our courses, and to adjust the evaluation section of our on-line grading accordingly.
Currently, you may select from the following options.
