Welcome to the Math Placement Test page! This page contains details regarding the actual math placement test.

The test consists of 41 questions roughly divided in two parts.

The first 25 questions test your basic high school math knowledge, including algebra, a bit of geometry, graphs of linear equations, the basics of logarithms and their properties, the basics of right-triangle trigonometry, and function notation. These are the important questions for placing out of Math 101. You shouldÂ **still** attempt all the questions, just don't feel bad if there are some questions in the second half that you are not familiar with, if you have not taken a precalculus-level course yet.

The last 16 questions are aimed at students seeking to place out of Math 113. A student can get all 16 of these wrong and still place out of MAT 101. If you are only interested in placement for CHE 161, PHY 161 or MAT 113, you should not worry if these last 16 questions are unfamiliar to you (but you should **still** attempt them if you know the answers). Of course, if you are interested in placing into MAT 121 or PHY 162, you will need to answer all 41 questions to the best of your ability.

The goal of the test is not to assign a grade but simply to assess your level of mathematical preparation in order to guide you towards an appropriate schedule. You should simply answer the questions as best you can, and skip over any questions relating to concepts that you are not familiar with.

**No calculator**: You should not use a calculator or other aids. You should have a paper and pencil handy to work through each problem before entering its answer.**Exam length**: You will have 90 minutes to complete 42 questions. The first question on the test is not really a question, but rather instructions for using the system. Please pay attention to those instructions.**Extra time:**We can make accommodations for students who need extra time on exams. Please email mathplacement@hanover.edu about it**before**you start the exam.**Login**: Your username for the test site is the same as your Hanover email but without the`@hanover.edu`

part. So if your email is`doej22@hanover.edu`

then your username for the test would be`doej22`

. Your password is the same as your Hanover password.**Start exam**: Follow this link when you are ready to start: https://webwork.hanover.edu/webwork2/MathPlacement**Questions**: If you have any questions at any time, please email mathplacement@hanover.edu.**Problems:**If you run into any problems during the exam, for instance due to a lost internet connection, you can simply start a new attempt.

If you feel your performance on the test does not accurately reflect your mathematical knowledge, or if you were unable to complete the test in time for some reason, you can simply start a new test at the same link. Only your highest score will count. Note that your first attempt at the test is marked with a "v1" (your second with a "v2" and so on), and you are able to view any previous attempts that you want to.
