Calculus Placement

The bulk of the students entering Brown will fit somewhere into our calculus sequence. If you think that you are one of these students, you should follow the instructions on this webpage. If you do not feel like some version of calculus is an appropriate course for you to take, yet you still want to take math at Brown, you should send email to We are especially interested in hearing from you if you have taken enough advanced math classes during high school so that you can skip our calculus sequence entirely. Please email us if you fall into this category. Also, even if you are not especially advanced in math, but wonder what math options you have besides calculus, you should send us email asking about it. If you are still reading this page, then the most likely situation is that you will fit somewhere in our calculus series. We have a variety of tools available to help you determine where you fit in the calculus series.
