MAC 1147 Syllabus COURSE CONTENT: MAC 1147 is a fast-paced review of algebra and trigonometry designed to prepare students for calculus, in particular, MAC 2311 Calculus I for science and engineering majors. Students who desire a slower pace may take MAC 1140 and MAC 1114. Note: a student can receive at most four hours credit for taking both MAC 1147 and MAC 1140, at most four credit hours for taking MAC 1147 and MAC 1114, and at most five credit hours for taking MAC 1147, MAC 1140 and MAC 1114. Students taking this course for Gordon Rule or general education credit, and who do not need precalculus for their major or as preparation for calculus, might consider taking MGF 1106 or MGF 1107 instead. TEXTBOOK: Precalculus with Limits (2007 copyright) by Larson and Hostetler. New books are prepackaged with online homework codes at a discount, or you may purchase an online homework code at www.webassign.net . COURSE HOMEPAGE: The MAC 1147 homepage can be accessed at www.math.ufl.edu/~huang/MAC1147.html . This site contains contact information, lecture notes, exam locations, and links to a variety of other resources. Announcements will be posted here as well, so you should check the course home page daily for updates. CONTACT INFORMATION: Course Coordinator Lecturer Discussion Leader Dr. Huang _______________ _______________ Office: LIT 371 _______________ _______________ Phone: 392-0281 ext 315 _______________ _______________ Office Hours: M8, W6, F5 _______________ _______________ Email: [email protected] _______________ _______________ E-LEARNING SYSTEM (ELS): Student grades will be posted on ELS by your discussion leader, and may be accessed through lss.at.ufl.edu . ELS is not to be used as a substitute for meeting with your discussion leader to verify or discuss grades, and ELS scores are merely a reflection of what appears on official gradesheet kept by your discussion leader, so that you can easily check the accuracy of recorded grades. Once new scores are posted, you have one week to contact your discussion leader if you believe there has been an error. LECTURES: Course lectures are given each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (exceptions are indicated in the course calendar in this booklet). They will closely follow the calendar and lecture outline given in this booklet. Attendance in lecture is required. You are responsible for learning the material covered in lecture in the event of an excused absence.

Students may print out the lecture notes from the course homepage, or purchased a copy of the notes at Target Copy Center. After class, you may come to Little 371 to copy worked out solutions to the lecture examples. DISCUSSION SECTIONS: Discussion sections meet once each week (either Tuesday or Thursday, depending on the section in which you are registered). These provide an opportunity for open discussions of homework assignments and material from the lectures. These classes are required; a significant portion of the points that determine your grade in the course will be earned in your discussion section.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
