INTRODUCTION COURSE CONTENT. MAC 2311 is the rst in the three-semester sequence MAC 2311, MAC 2312, MAC 2313 covering the basic calculus. The content of this course is given precisely in the lecture outline in this booklet. PREREQUISITES. MAC 2311 assumes that you have essential precalculus skills necessary to succeed in calculus. The course begins with a short review of topics in algebra and trigonometry. You should already be competent in working this material. To enroll in MAC 2311, you must have earned a grade of C or better in MAC 1147 (or its equivalent, both MAC 1140 and MAC 1114), earned calculus credit through an exam or earlier coursework, or have passed the Calculus Readiness Assessment (CRA) and attained the required minimum score. You may take the CRA through the ISIS homepage isis.u .edu ; click on Placement under My Online Services. The complete list of appropriate prerequisites for MAC 2311 can be found on the Math Department web page, math.u .edu/courses/advising/ ; link to Precalculus and Calculus options, then to Calculus 1 courses: Prerequisites and Placement. You can also check with your advisor, the MAC 2311 course coordinator, or in the main math o ce (Little 358) to be sure you are eligible to register for this course. We strongly recommend that all students, especially those having a low score on the CRA, take the time to review the precalculus material in the text (appendices A through D) and the rst few lectures of MAC 2311. Any student having di culty with this material should consider rst taking MAC 1147, a four credit precalculus course. You have two weeks to make that choice. During the rst week of classes, you drop back to MAC 1147 through ISIS. After the drop-add period, the paperwork to move to MAC 1147 must be completed in the math department, Little 358. The deadline is Friday, September 4 at 4PM . See the course coordinator, Mrs. Smith, in Little 378. TEXTBOOK. Calculus: Early Transcendentals , sixth edition by Stewart. The text can be purchased (from the publisher or local bookstores) in separate volumes including just the chapters necessary for the individual courses in the calculus sequence. These are prepackaged with the access code necessary to complete the required online homework. You may also purchase the hard back copy of the full text with an access code. If you have a used copy of the text, you may obtain an access code at www.webassign.net . MAC 2311 HOME PAGE. The MAC 2311 home page provides basic course information and lecture notes, and is updated regularly with the latest assignments and announcements. The contact information for the course coordinator, Mrs. Smith, including email, phone and o ce hours, is also posted on this page. The address is www.math.u .edu/ jysmith/mac2311 , or you may link to it through the E-learning course page, or the math department website, www.math.u .edu/ (link to people, then lecturers).

    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.
