Prerequisites: It is recommended that students re-take any calculus or precalculus course with a C+ or below before proceeding to the subsequent course. Alternatively, the student may wish to study on their own doing all the homework in the prerequisite's syllabus. See below for the syllabi of our courses listed in order. Students are expected to know all the material on the syllabus regardless of what was covered in their particular sections of the course.
Syllabi: Note that these syllabi should be adhered to as much as possible so that these courses coincide exactly with its corequisites and prepare students for future classes. The homework on the syllabi is just recommended. Faculty may copy the source files for these syllabi to create their own webpages where they can post their homework assignments and day-to-day progress.
