AP Math is Not the Same!

If your AP course placed you in Math 141 (Calculus II) and you are not comfortable with attempting Calculus II, consider having the AP course removed from your record prior to beginning your freshman year.
Don’t risk damaging your GPA. (Remember, a C is worth 2.0 not 3.0 needed for scholarship recipients and those in limited majors). Once you are placed in  Calculus II, if you find it difficult, you are not permitted to go back and enroll in Calculus I at Penn State. You can choose to begin in Math 140 (Calculus I) instead to secure a good college calculus background. This is the math level where most engineering freshmen start.  You can then complete Math 141 the following semester.
