Math Placement Exam

The College of Professional and Continuing Education requires all incoming Wentworth students to complete this exam to ensure they are placed at the appropriate level of mathematics.  It consists of three sections that correspond to our required series of courses:

  • Math 225 - College Mathematics A
  • Math 230 - College Mathematics B
  • Math 235 - College Mathematics C

Depending on how students perform on this exam, they may be placed into a higher level class and awarded credit for its pre-requisites.  While results will not be used to place students in a lower level class, it may be recommended that they take Math 120 Basic Algebra to gain the foundation necessary to be successful in future courses.

Students must attempt all problems on the exam regardless of which class they are enrolled.  The entire test should take about one hour to complete.

Wentworth Institute of Technology values highly the principles of honesty and integrity.  They are the cornerstones of education and scholarship, two vital components to learning and teaching.  In order to maintain this standard, we ask that you strictly adhere to the rules set forth:

  • Approximately 20 minutes are allowed for each section.
  • Use of calculators and tables are not permitted.
