    NYU Shanghai Placement Exam for Calculus
    Note:?NYU Shanghai will not accept scores from an AP exam (or other exam meant for high school students) taken after a student already matriculated at NYU Shanghai.
    ?
    Below is information for sending AP and IB exams to NYU.
    ?
    AP Scores:?Students should release AP scores via College Board to NYU using the school code:?2562. Once students submit the request for scores to be sent, it typically takes College Board between 2 – 4 weeks to send scores from within the past 5 years. Scores from 5 or more years ago take about 4 – 6 weeks to receive because they are “archived” and sent via postal mail as opposed to delivered in an electronic file. Score are processed within one week of receipt. Scores will appear on the student’s transcripts.
    ?
    IB Scores:?IB scores must be released electronically via the IBO to New York University. For most students, the IB coordinator at their school assists them in identifying the university scores should be sent to prior to sitting for the examination. Scores for future exam dates are released on January 5 for the November exams and on July 5 for the May exams. Students who are requesting scores be sent after taking the exam can navigate to?this link?for additional information.
    ?
    Students can EITHER select China as the country of the institution and New York University Shanghai OR United States as the country, New York as the state, and New York University.

    ?
    MATH-SHU 10 Quantitative Reasoning: Great Ideas in Mathematics
    This one-semester course serves as an introduction to great ideas in mathematics. During the course we will examine a variety of topics chosen from the following broad categories.
    1) A survey of pure mathematics: What do mathematicians do and what questions inspire them? 2) Great works: What are some of the historically big ideas in the field? Who were the mathematicians that came up with them? 3) Mathematics as a reflection of the world we live in: How does our understanding of the natural world affect mathematics (and vice versa)? 4) Computations, proofs, and mathematical reasoning: Quantitative skills are crucial for dealing with the sheer amount of information available in modern society. 5) Mathematics as a liberal art: Historically, some of the greatest mathematicians have also been poets, artists, and philosophers. How is mathematics a natural result of humanity's interest in the nature of truth, beauty, and understanding? Why is math a liberal art? Prerequisite: None.
    ?
    MATH-SHU 131 Calculus?
    This course presents the foundations of calculus for functions of a single variable. Topics addressed include limits, continuity, rules of differentiation, approximation, antiderivatives, indefinite and definite integrals, the fundamental theorem of calculus, integration techniques, and improper integrals. Prerequisite: Sufficient high school grades, or NYU SH “Calculus and Linear Algebra” placement exam, or a grade of C or better in MATH-SHU 9 (Precalculus).

    ?
    MATH-SHU 201 Honors Calculus
    This is a rigorous course in single-variable calculus, providing preparation for advanced, courses in analysis. It emphasizes proofs and therefore also provides a strong formation to logical thinking and argumentation, which are valuable in other disciplines. Topics covered include basic logic and set theory, functions, sequences, series, limits of functions, continuity, derivatives, and Taylor expansions. Prerequisite: Faculty review of high school grades, or NYU SH “Honors Calculus and Honors Linear Algebra” placement exam, or authorization of the instructor. This course can replace MATH-SHU 131 (Calculus) as a prerequisite. Not of ered to students who took MATH-SHU 143 (Foundations of Mathematical Methods).

    ?
    MATH-SHU 141 Honors Linear Algebra I
    This is the first semester of a 2-semester sequence in linear algebra for advanced mathematics majors. This course starts with introducing the basic practical knowledge of linear algebra, that is operations on matrices and techniques in order to solve a system of linear equations. These notions are covered on both practical and theoretical levels. After this, the focus is on operators and an introduction to spectral theory. The following topics are studied: vector spaces, linear independence, bases, dimension, determinants, characteristic polynomials, Cayley-Hamilton theorem, as well as eigenvalues and eigenvectors. The goal of this course is, on one hand, to provide the practical tools for application in various disciplines and courses such as Differential Equations, Analysis, or Probability and, on the other hand, to acquire the theoretical knowledge necessary to properly write mathematical proofs. Prerequisite: Faculty review of high school grades, or NYU SH “Honors Calculus and Honors Linear Algebra” placement exam, or authorization of the instructor. This course can
    replace MATH-SHU 140 (Linear algebra) as a prerequisite.
    Usually taken concurrently with?MATH-SHU 201 Honors Calculus.?Click?here?to view course syllabus.
    ?
    MATH-SHU?151 (formerly 123) Multivariable Calculus
    This course is a continuation of calculus, focusing on sequences, series, and the calculus of functions of several variables. The first part is focused on real sequences and series, power series, Taylor expansions and Landau’s notation. The second part concerns functions of several variables, including continuity, differentiation, gradient, extrema, Lagrange multipliers, multiple integrals, and an introduction to vector calculus. Prerequisite: Grade of C or better in MATH-SHU 131 (Calculus).

However, if you?do?have previous programming background, you may wish to take an on-site placement test to try and place out of “Introduction to Programming” and be eligible to enroll directly in “Introduction to Computer Science”, the next-level course.
    ?
    Students who want to try the placement exam are expected to have a solid and deep understanding of the first 10 chapters of the textbook?Starting Out with Python (Third Edition or Fourth?Edition, Gaddis). They should also do every single problem in the first 10 chapters of the book.
    To help you decide whether or not you should take the test, review?this sample test?and try out the problems, as well as reviewing the course descriptions and syllabi below (note that the syllabi is for reference only). If you are able to successfully complete the sample test?in 40 minutes, you should sign up for the Placement Exam. If you are unable to successfully complete the sample test in 40 minutes or less, you are probably not ready for “Introduction to Computer Science” yet and should choose “Introduction to Programming” instead.

    CSCI-SHU 11 Introduction to Computer Programming
    An introduction to the fundamentals of computer programming. Students design, write, and debug computer programs. No prior knowledge of programming is assumed. Students will learn programming using Python, a general purpose, cross-platform programming language with a clear, readable syntax. Most class periods will be part lecture, part lab as you explore ideas and put them into practice. This course is suitable for students not intending in majoring in computer science as well as for students intending to major in computer science but having no programming experience. Students with previous programming experience should instead take Introduction to Computer Science.
