Ready... Set... Calculus
"Ready.. Set.. Calculus" is a book that has been designed to
help guide incoming Science and Engineering majors in
assessing and practicing their "initial" mathematical skills.
The problems involve arithmetic, algebra, inequalities, trigonometry,
logarithms, exponentials and graph recognition and do not
require the use of a calculator. The book has problems,
examples and links to web pages with further help.
This Fall semester,
there will be a quiz on precalculus on the first or second day of the
Calculus I and II classes for Science and Engineering majors.
A copy of the quiz given in the Fall 2008 semester is linked below, note that
calculators are NOT allowed on the quiz. Please keep in mind that the quiz
questions may change considerably and make certain to study all of the
problems in "Ready... Set... Calculus".
