Welcome to the Precalculus Tutorial

The Precalculus Tutorial is available to incoming students before their first semester of classes at CSU who have completed the Math Placement Tool. It is intended to allow students to satisfy prerequisites for courses they need in their first semester. Successfully completing a section of this tutorial is equivalent to placing out of the corresponding course on the Math Placement Tool -- it satisfies prerequisites as if the course had been passed.

This Tutorial requires an e-text access code. The CSU Bookstore will automatically activate an access code for any student who works on this tutorial before their first semester at CSU, and bill the student account $20 for that code when the following semester begins (you will not need to purchase or enter a code yourself).

If you use this tutorial and then take any of the one-credit Precalculus courses in the following semester, your access code will continue to work through that semester's courses (there is no need to purchase a new code for that semester).
