Ready For Calculus III ?

One of the problems we encounter while teaching
Calculus III is that many students do not have the mathematical
skills which are essential for success. This is true even though
the prerequisite courses (Calculus I, and II) 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 III. This program
would quiz the student on all sections of calculus I and II which
are essential to Calculus III. In particular: functions and curves,
logs and exponentials, differentiation, integration, and areas.
The whole purpose of the program would be to hone the student's
skills in those parts of calculus which are essential for success
in Calculus III.
