## Special Programs - Fast Track Calculus

### FAST TRACK CALCULUS

Differential, integral and multivariable calculus, is offered during
the summer (late July through late August) for selected members of our
entering freshman class who have demonstrated outstanding ability in mathematics
and studied a year of calculus during high school. Participants are expected
to have scored at least 700 on the mathematics portion of the SAT or 31
on the mathematics portion of the ACT. Students, who have a 680 mathematics
score and at least a 700 verbal score on the SAT, or a 30 mathematics score
and at least a 31 verbal score on the ACT have also been admitted to the
program. Participants who successfully complete Fast Track Calculus
(graded on a pass/fail basis) satisfy Rose-Hulman's freshman Calculus requirement,
are awarded 15 quarter hours of credit toward graduation , and begin their
college careers as "mathematical
sophomores."

Admission to Fast Track Calculus is competitive. Interested students
should contact the Head of the Mathematics Department or Director of Fast
Track Calculus.

Fast Track Calculus is graded on a pass/fail basis. For course details,
