Unformatted text preview: MAC 1147 Student Guide Summer C 2011 Contents: Syllabus Calendar Assignments Sample Exams 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 both MAC 1147 and MAC 1140 and at most four credit hours for MAC 1147 and MAC 1114, and at most five credit hours for 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 , UF custom copy, 2 nd edition, by Larson. New books are prepackaged with online homework code, e-book code, and student solutions manual (ISBN: 9781111496579) at a discount, or you may purchase an enhanced Webassign (ISBN: 9780538738101) including online homework and e-book codes. E-LEARNING SYSTEM (Sakai): Student grades will be posted on ELS by your instructor, and may be accessed through lss.at.ufl.edu . ELS is not to be used as a substitute for meeting with your instructor to verify or discuss grades, and ELS scores are merely a reflection of what appears on official gradesheet kept by your instructor, so that you can easily check the accuracy of recorded grades. Once new scores are posted, you have one week to contact your instructor if you believe there has been an error. LECTURES: Course lectures are given each Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday (exceptions are indicated in the course calendar in this booklet). They will follow closely the calendar and lecture outline given in this booklet, but may vary slightly. Attendance in lecture is required. If you miss a lecture, it is your responsibility to learn the material covered in your absence. Lecture notes will be available at Target Copy Center. TEACHING CENTER MATH LAB , located in SE Broward Hall, is a free, walk-in tutorial service, staffed by competent tutors. The lab provides individualized help with homework and your mathematics questions; you may want to attend different sessions to find the tutors with whom you feel most comfortable. Check the lab webpage, www.teachingcenter.ufl.edu , for tutoring hours and to access other available services. All students are encouraged to use this lab. SUCCESS: Your success in MAC 1147 will depend on two things: first, your attendance and participation in the learning process in the classroom and second, your awareness that much of the learning of mathematics at the university takes place outside of the classroom. In class, you should concentrate on the concepts and thought processes involved in the lecture, rather than just taking notes. After class, you should spend time reviewing the concepts which were covered in lecture before attempting the homework problems. You should expect to spend aproblems....
