Mathematics Requirements at MMC
Students at MMC have the following requirements in Mathematics, which should be taken within a student’s first 30 credits:

Prerequisite Requirement: MATH 109: Introductory Algebra or exempt by placement

Foundation Mathematics Requirement: MATH 113: Quantitative Reasoning or MATH 129: Intermediate Algebra, or higher (141 Precalculus, 210 Calculus I, etc.)
Notes:
 Transfer students who enter MMC with collegelevel Mathematics transfer credits do not need to take another Mathematics course. You can check for this in the Evaluate Program option of MMC Connect.
 Students who have placed out of MATH 109 may want to take a higherlevel course than MATH 113 or 129. They will need to email (lmargolin@mmm.edu) prerequisite waiver via the Student Services web page.
 Higherlevel Mathematics courses (MATH 141 or higher) may satisfy the DS3 requirement but they cannot be used to doubledip with the Foundation Mathematics requirement.
 Courses taken at another institution (accredited college) to satisfy Mathematics requirements must be approved by the Department of Mathematics. Online courses taken at another institution must have proctored cumulative final exams. The Department of Mathematics does not give permission to take the course outside of MMC if the same course is offered at MMC in the semester when it is requested.
Higherlevel placement is on a casebycase basis. Test scores are viewable using the View Student Test Summary option of MMC Connect (use the highest score):
Math Test  Code  Minimum Score  *New Minumem* 
ACT  Act Math  21  19 
Old SAT  SAT Math  500  480 
New SAT(from 2016)  SAT R Math  530  510 
Old MMC Math (sum of 2 scores)  Math Placement plus Algebra placement (Ignore Algebra II score)  Total of 46  44 
MMC Accuplacer  Quant. Reasoning, Algebra, Stats  263  250 
Students need to meet at least one of the minimum scores. If they don’t and still would like to place out of Math 109, they should take MMC’s Accuplacer and Placement Testing exam administered via Zoom by the Center for Academic Support and Testing. Students can request to take the math placement test by emailing Ryan Cunningham at rcunningham@mmm.edu. Students may also request that the Department of Mathematics look at other evidence such as highschool transcripts.
