The prerequisite for MATH2208 is Grade XI Math or Grade XII Math or equivalent, or MATH 0017 with a grade C or better or MATH0020 with a grade of at least C, or any 1000-level math course. Students planning to take MATH 2208 no longer have to write a placement test. However, we recommend that you try the self-test below to see if you still remember the skills you will need to start the course.

SELF-TEST INSTRUCTIONSThe assessment will allow you to determine if you are familiar with the topics needed for the course. You should have a pencil, scrap paper, and a calculator handy. Going through all the topics at once will take a while, so you may prefer just to do a few topics at a time. If you miss more than one or two answers on any topic, it would be a good idea to review that topic before starting the course.

If many of the topics are unfamiliar to you then you should consider taking MATH 0017 before you take MATH 2208. This is a Statistics Preparation course designed specifically to prepare you for our Statistics course. It is a non-credit course that is offered frequently-and takes about 6 weeks to complete. The next course starting will be listed in the current academic year timetable.
