Occasionally handouts will attempt clarification of some point to aid in your learning. A log of these will be kept here, with links to .pdf scanned copies of handwritten handouts for your convenience. Some will only be on-line handouts, which makes the term "handouts" a bit questionable. The current list may be updated during the semester.

You are responsible for all asking bob for all paper handouts you missed receiving due to class absences, or you must print these scans to substitute them.

From MAT1500 and precalc [not handed out in paper form]:

- rules of algebra.
- understanding function notation, functional relationships.
- trigonometry and the unit circle.
- inverse trig functions.
- solving a functional relationship between two variables for the input variable.

From MAT1500/1505:

- You are expected to know this basic stuff without hesitation or by using
technology when needed:

calculus I and II: basic functions [algebra summary] [print combo]

**MAT 2500**

** Course bureaucracy:**

- Welcome email with WebAssign class codes, sent weekend before classes start.
- student schedule sheet section [01, 04] [you can print these to fill out in advance, or pick one up in the first class]
- Course information sheet
(final version ready 4th day of class?)
