The Bucknell Pre-calculus Requirement

College-level mathematics is exciting and empowering, and the Mathematics Department wants your experience to begin in the best way possible!  We are providing and requiring a 6-week online preparation course—the ALEKS Prep. for Calculus—for all students who will take MATH 201.  Results from previous years show that working through this online course will get you started on the path to success in college calculus.

The Prep. for Calculus course will be available starting July 19. The deadline for completion for Fall Calculus enrollment is Aug. 29; we recommend you start by Aug 1. Students with a Spring Calculus enrollment may choose to complete this requirement over the summer or over winter break.

To get started, read the Prep. for Calculus Information sheet then visit the Bucknell ALEKS Prep. for Calculus Moodle page.
