MATH 17A   Dr. Daddel
FAQ


Q:  I have never taken calculus before. I did very well in trigonometry in 11th grade, and was successful in AP Statistics my senior year. I also scored a 30 on the math placement exam with a trigonometry sub-score  of 4. Is there anything that you would recommend that I do to prepare for the class? Do you think my background has adequately prepared me for this course?

  A:
If you had Precalculus and did well, you should have no problem,
otherwise I would recommend you to enroll also in MATH 12 and continue
both classes for two weeks, then decide which one you like to continue.

Q:  I wanted to ask can you change my
discussion time of 7:10pm-8:00pm  to an earlier time.Can I go to the
discussion at 6:10-7:00pm? instead of one at 7:10pm-8:00pm.

A:
 Unfortunately all discussion sections are full and also you have to take quizzes in your own registered section.
Please attend your own registered section.

Q: I was wondering if we needed our books for both lecture and
 discussion?

A:
 It is up to you, if you think you use it, have it with you. Normally we do
not need the text book at lectures time.
===========================================

 Q:  Is it ok if we have the second edition of the
textbook or do we necessarily need the 3rd edition?

A:  If you use the second edition of the text book, it is your responsibility to match the HW assignments with the third addition.
