Preparing for Courses

Review Calc I before I start Calc II? Are you serious??

Actually, yes. An important characteristic of the mathematics program is that course content is cumulative across sequential courses. That is, in order to be successful in a mathematics course you should remember and be able to apply the mathematics you have learned in previous courses. To help you do this, the Math/Stat Department has prepared documents that include topics you should know for courses along with links for review material and practice problems. You should review and work through these documents between courses so that you will be ready to function successfully on the first day of class.
