Practice Math Questions

Practice Math Questions for Admitted Environmental Science and Policy Students

Students admitted to the Environmental Sciences and Policy program, you are strongly encouraged to complete the online Practice Math Questions. Instructions for accessing the questions are below.

The practice questions will be available to admitted students only. This is not an exam. There is no penalty if you decide not complete the practice questions or if you do not correctly answer them. The purpose of providing these questions is to help newly admitted students assess their quantitative abilities and to see the type of skills that can be expected in the program. You should go through the series of questions, answering them the best you can, review the correct answers, and then determine which, if any, quantitative skills you need to study so that you are prepared for your core classes. If after completing the practice questions you don’t feel that you did very well and need more formal study, talk with your advisor about your options.

There is no time limit. It is expected that you would use a calculator.
