COURSE POLICIES and SYLLABUS COURSE CONTENT. MAC 1140,precalculus, is a review of college algebra designed to prepare students for calculus. Students who successfully complete this course can directly advance to MAC2233, Survey of Calculus. For students preparing for Calculus I, MAC2311, this precalculus course is the first of a two-part precalculus sequence. Students must complete College Trigonometry, MAC1114 as well as MAC1140 before taking Calculus I. The sequence of both MAC1140 and MAC1114 covers the same material and uses the same text as the one semester, faster paced course, MAC1147. If you have already received credit for MAC1147, you can not earn credit for MAC1140 or MAC1114 again. Students taking this course for general education credit, and who do not need precalculus for their major or as preparation for calculus, might consider taking MGF1106 or 1107, Math for LS major I & II. An online College Algebra course MAC1105 , is also available fall and spring semester. TEXTBOOK. Precalculus with Limits 2 nd edition by Larson. The text book has ISBN--13: 978-1-111-51763-2 ISBN--10: 1-111-51763-0. Note : the web access c.d. (sometimes bundled with the text) is not required and only the textbook is required. MAC1140 HOMEPAGE, www.math.ufl.edu/~frankpatane/mac1140.html,provides basic course information and lecture notes, and is updated regularly with the latest assignments and announcements. The contact information for the course coordinator and teaching assistants is posted on this page. COURSE CALENDAR. The calendar is on the course website.

DISCUSSION SECTIONS. Each student is assigned a discussion section, which meets Tuesday and Thursday. This required class is a valuable opportunity for open discussion of the lecture material and assigned problems in a smaller class setting. Attendance in discussion is required ; a significant portion of the points that determine your grade in the course are earned in your discussion class. Your main resource person is your discussion leader, a teaching assistant (TA) in the mathematics department. He or she is available during office hours (or by appointment) to answer your questions about the course material. Your TA is responsible for grading, recording all quiz, homework, and test scores. You must retain all returned papers in case of any discrepancy with your course
