One of the problems we encounter while teaching
calculus is that many students do not have the mathematical
skills which are essential for success. This is true even though
the prerequisite courses (College Algebra and Trig) have been
passed. To address this problem, the Mathematics Department
of the University of Arizona decided to do the following. Write
a computer program which a student can use before starting calculus.
This program would quiz the student on all sections of algebra
and trig which are essential to calculus. The whole purpose
of the program would be to hone the student's skills in those
parts of algebra and trig which are essential for success in
calculus. This program quizzes students in the following areas:
Greek symbols, elementary trigonometry, elementary algebra,
factoring, fractions, exponents, functions and equations, inequalities,
curves, functions from formulas, and trigonometric identities.
