INTRODUCTION COURSE CONTENT MAC 2233 is the first in the two-semester sequence MAC 2233 and MAC 2234 covering the basic calculus. The content of this course is given on a day by day basis in the lecture outline in this booklet. PREREQUISITES MAC 2233 assumes that you have essential algebra skills necessary to succeed in calculus. The appropriate prerequisites for the course can be found on the Math Department web page, http://www.math.ufl.edu/courses/advising or the Academic Advising Center web page, http://www.advising.ufl.edu/ . You should have completed the Calculus Readiness Assessment (CRA) prior to registering for this course and should have attained at least the minimum passing score. We highly recommend that anyone having a minimum score on the CRA review the material covered in the first few lectures to determine whether they need to first take MAC 1140, a 3 credit hour precalculus course reviewing algebra skills needed for calculus. TEXTBOOK Applied Calculus , sixth edition by S.T. Tan. LECTURES Course lectures are given each Monday through Friday (exceptions are indicated in the course calendar in this booklet). They will follow closely the calendar and lecture outline given in this booklet. Lecture notes will be available online and at Target Copy center. SUCCESS Your success in this course will depend on two things: first, your attendance and participation in the learning process in the classroom and second, your awareness that much of the learning of mathematics at the university takes place outside of the classroom. In class, you should concentrate on the concepts and thought processes involved in the lecture, rather than just taking notes. After class, you should spend time reviewing the concepts which were covered in lecture before attempting the homework problems. You should expect to spend a minimum of two hours working on your own for every hour of classroom instruction. It can be very helpful to study with a group. This type of cooperative learning is encouraged; however, be sure that you have a thorough understanding of the concepts as well as the mathematical steps used to solve a problem. You must be able to work through the problems on your own.
