COURSE POLICIES and SYLLABUS 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. This guide applies to the nonengineering sections of MAC 2311. PREREQUISITES. MAC 2311 assumes that you have essential precalculus skills (both algebra and trigonometry) necessary to succeed in calculus. 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 taken the ALEKS placement assessment and attained the required minimum score. You may take the ALEKS assessment through the ISIS homepage isis.ufl.edu ; click on Placement under My Online Services. For more complete informa- tion, check the page isis.ufl.edu/aleksinfo.html . Note the following paragraph: \The Department of Mathematics encourages you to take the assessment even if you have met one of the prerequisites for MAC 2311. Quite often, your algebra and trigonometry skills may need review and your placement assessment can provide information and speci±c areas for additional study." You can check with an advisor in your college, the MAC 2311 course coordinator, or in the main math o²ce (Little 358) to be sure that you are eligible for MAC 2311. MAC 2311 begins with a short review of precalculus topics. You should already be competent in working this material. We strongly recommend that students who are having di²culty with the precalculus review material consider ±rst taking MAC 1147, a four credit precalculus course reviewing essential calculus skills. You may switch courses on ISIS during the drop-add period. In an agreement with the registrar’s o²ce, you have one additional week to drop back to MAC 1147. After the drop-add period, the paperwork to move back to precalculus MAC 1147 must be completed through the math department. The deadline is Friday, Sept. 2 at 4PM . See the course coordinator, Mrs. Smith, in Little 378.
