Skip Calc III??

<p>I'm taking multivariable right now in high school and so I was wondering if they'll let me skip that. Is it covered in their Calc evaluation packet?</p>

<p>The calculus placement test can only get you out of Calc 1 and 2. If you were taking multivariable at a college you'd probably be able to skip it, but they probably wouldn't accept credit for a high school class. It never hurts to ask, though.</p>

<p>You can't simply skip out of it, but many students that take Multivariable Calculus in High School take the math honors track.</p>

<p>If you complete two years of honors math you are eligible to get accepted into a 4 years Masters in Math which is pretty sweet; you get a Masters along with your degree.</p>

<p>I'm taking it through University of Illinois Urbana, it's dually a high school credit and college credit I think... Seeing as there was a $300 charge. </p>

<p>So I will most likely have to take it again if I go to CMU? And will my options be any different if I don't want to major purely in math?</p>

<p>^You can do the honors sequence even if you're not a math major.</p>

<p>If you're taking it through college you will get a college credit (as long as you do the necessary transfer forms) but frankly, why would you want to?</p>

<p>I'm not particularly worried about the credit, though it might be useful for graduating. I was just wondering if they dealt with calc III the same way that they did I and II because it would be the third time learning the same material (did MIT OCW before taking in school) and I could just get a jump on linear algebra or differential equations or something else. If not then it doesn't really matter. I'm sure it integrates with future classes and their general progression.</p>

<p>You probably can skip it if it's the course of UIUC...</p>
