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 this material. To be enrolled 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.u².edu ; click on Placement under My Online Services. The complete list of appropriate prerequisites for the course can be found on the Math Department web page, math.u².edu/courses/advising . Check with your advisor or in the main math o³ce (Little 358) to be sure you are eligible to register for this course. We strongly recommend that a student having a minimum score on the CRA review the precalculus material in the text (appendices A through D) and the ±rst few lectures of MAC 2311. Any student having di³culty with this material should consider ±rst taking MAC 1147, a four credit precalculus course reviewing algebra and trigonometry skills. You will need to make this decision before the end of the drop-add period. TEXTBOOK Calculus: Early Transcendentals , sixth edition by Stewart. The text can be purchased in separate volumes, which are prepackaged with the access code necessary to complete the required online homework. You may also purchase an access code at www.webassign.net . LECTURES Course lectures are given each Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday (ex- ceptions are indicated in the course calendar in this booklet). They will closely follow the calendar and lecture outline given in this guide. Attendance in lecture is required. You are responsible for learning the material covered in lecture in the event of an excused absence. Students may print out the lecture notes from the pulldown menu on the page www.math.u².edu/ ± jysmith/MAC2311 , or purchase a copy of the notes at Target Copy Center on West University Avenue or Archer Road. 2
