*Notes: Minimum high school course requirements for admission. How to calculate RAI score for admission. *Notes: Guidelines for who should take the placement exams. Preparation, including sample tests. Making arrangements to take the exams. Coursetaking options.

*Notes: Minimum high school course requirements for admission. How to calculate RAI score for admission. *Notes: Web site created to help students understand math preparation needed for various majors at UI. Complete list of UI majors includes math requirements of each major. Five mathematics topics are divided into modules , each including quizzes, solutions, and tutorial material— arithmetic , algebra, analytic geometry, trigonometry , and logarithms / exponentials . Two options for assessing current mastery of subject are online quizzes and sample final exams of math courses. Oncampus math events are posted here as well. An advisory on the use of calculators, and on benefits of a strong math foundation. 
*Notes: Includes “Building Your
Future” blueprint for preparation for the Regent universities that
details minimum and optimum college preparatory curriculum . Also links to the Regent Admission Index (RAI) calculator
