The Mathematics Program plays an integral part in Colby-Sawyer’s efforts to ensure that students attain proficiency in quantitative literacy as an important element of their liberal education. The math courses are supplemented by a college-wide program to teach quantitative literacy across the curriculum.
Placement into mathematics courses is based on a student’s intended major and performance in high school math courses. For the purpose of placement, students should have successfully completed high school math courses with a grade of B- or better.
