math_227_place-out_exam

This page contains information about the place-out exam of Math 227. This exam is for those who got 5 in AP Calculus BC and entered the university on or after Fall 2020. Currently, students with 5 in AP Calculus BC who entered Fall 2020 or later will receive MATH 224 (2 credits), MATH 225 (2 credits), MATH 226 (2 credits) & MSCI XXX (2 credits). Upon successfully passing the place-out exam, students will receive credit for MATH 227 instead of MSCI XXX.

*Not to be confused with the placement exam, which is for students who want to take Calculus I or Business Calculus.*

**This year's exam took place on August 21. If you did not take or did not pass it, you should take MATH 227 this semester.**

To take a stand-alone MATH 227 in the second half of the semester, use the second form on the page: https://www2.math.binghamton.edu/p/forms/start

Please make sure that you can add two extra credits and that one of the class times fits your schedule.
While MATH 227 is considered a prerequisite for MATH 323, not all of it is needed there, and we consider 5 on AP Calculus BC sufficient prerequisite to take MATH 323. You can take MATH 323 and MATH 227 in the same semester. **If you are currently enrolled in MATH 323, you will not be disenrolled.** For any questions, email Prof. Alexander Borisov at borisov@math.binghamton.edu

The Math 227 place-out examination will be a 2-hour written examination, similar in coverage to the Math 227 final examination. **The next exam will be in late August 2024, details to be determined.** You must register to take the exam, using the link at the bottom of this page. **Note: you can only attempt the place-out once, and only if you did not take MATH 227.**

For a more detailed description of the exam coverage, see this page:
