Walnut Hill School for the Arts

Math Placement

From all of us at the Math Department - Welcome to Walnut Hill!
These tests are designed to help place in you a math course that will be challenging but where you will find success. It is very important that you do your own work on this test and that you not receive any help. Remember, this is not for a grade, this is to help us help you grow in your math skills. Please do not use any notes, online help, textbooks, or help from others. You may use a calculator.
Do not worry if you cannot do all the problems. You are not expected to get them all right or to have studied all of the topics that appear on the test. If you have no idea how to approach a problem on the test, just leave it blank. Do your best and help us to give you the math class that will work best for you.
