What we'll coverIn Calculus I (Math 131) we covered Chapters 2-3-4 and sections 5.1-5.4 in Chapter 5 (with a just few sections skipped along the way). This is more-or-less the standard coverage for a one semester calculus course at most colleges.
We will do a very quick review of highlights in sections 5.1-5.4 in the first two days of Math 132, but you should be comfortable with this material if you're going to take Calculus II. The course moves quickly and there's not a lot of "slack time" to catch up. Here is a link that shows background material you should know.
Note that Chapter 1 in the textbook is precalculus material which can be useful for review or references as needed.
Calculators For course exams and quizzes, no calculators of any kind will be allowed. Of course, you can use any kind of technology you want for your homework and study. Just be careful not to become dependent on technology so that you can't do the basic things by hand. See the link
