There are two examinations on the first day of Orientation, a math exam and a writing exam, as well as a discussion session. The math exam will be your typical math exam; the writing exam is a single timed essay based on Plato’s Euthyphro.
The results of your math competency exam will affect whether the faculty decides you need additional help in math. If so, you will be given various math resources so that you are able to achieve a passing score on the math exam in the future. Download this packet to help you prepare for the exam.
The focus of your discussion group will also be Plato’s Euthyphro. You will want to spend time reflecting on the reading in preparation. You should also read the Seminar Strategies handout to prepare for your discussion group.
