WPI Math Placement Tests

Welcome to the Mathematical Sciences Department at WPI. We're glad you have decided to join the class of 2026.

One of the first decisions you must make is what course to select for your first mathematics course. We have created an online “test” to help you review some mathematics, choose your best first math class, and identify gaps in your background that may cause trouble in calculus at WPI.

The Math Placement Exam, along with information about our calculus courses, retroactive credit, as well as AP and IB credit are all located at the following canvas site: https://canvas.wpi.edu/courses/34423. On this site, you will find everything you need to complete the exam and receive your recommendation.
