Unformatted text preview: MAC 2311 STUDENT GUIDE Fall 2009 CONTENTS: Introduction (Syllabus) Calendar Lecture Outline Sample Exams 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.
