Unformatted text preview: MAC 2311 STUDENT GUIDE Summer 2011 CONTENTS: Course Policies Syllabus Calendar Lecture Outline Sample Exams 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. 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 placement exam through the ISIS homepage isis.u .edu ; click on Placement under My Online Services. For more complete information, check the page isis.u .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 or in the main math o ce (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 di culty 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. CONTACT INFORMATION: INSTRUCTOR: OFFICE: PHONE: OFFICE HOURS: EMAIL: 1 TEXTBOOK. We will be using the online text produced by the math department, which can be accessed through the Orange Grove Press website, http:// orida.theorangegrove.org/og/ . Go to the link \browse all open textbooks", then Webassign supported texts, and the link Concepts in Calculus I. You may also view a Precalculus text for review.

The UF edition of the text can be purchased (from the publisher or local bookstores) in separate volumes including the required chapters for the individual courses in the calculus sequence (this is the current textbook for MAC 2312 and MAC 2313). There are many options online and in bookstores to obtain a used copy. Copies of the Stewart text and solutions manual are available on reserve at the Science Library in Marston Hall and the Education Library in Norman Hall....
