How to Use These Pages
A Student's View
Calculus@UTK is the web-based collection of notes and other relevant information, examples, and suggestions for students in Calculus 141-142. All pages are organized according to the table of contents of the studentís textbook. To reach this table of contents, go to http://archives.math.utk.edu/utk.calculus/141toc.html for Calculus 141, and http://archives.math.utk.edu/utk.calculus/142toc.html for Calculus 142.
By now the student has noticed many animated notes and pictures on these web pages. There are several plug-ins available for free in order to access these notes. For related information, go to http://archives.math.utk.edu/utk.calculus/help.html.
A different method of proceeding is to go to http://archives.math.utk.edu/visual.calculus/. Here, the student will find a table of contents under which sections are organized by topic. Clicking on a topic brings up a large collection of links to pages containing all the relevant information. Students can scan this list for the notes they are looking for. These lists are organized into tutorials (animated notes), interactive materials, example problems, drill problems, computer programs and calculator instructions, and reference materials. They are accessible by scrolling down the list, or clicking one of the green boxes on the left side of the screen.
Taking advantage of these pages is a MUST! For any student enrolled in Calculus 141 or 142, this is invaluable information located within easy access. In addition to reading the book and taking notes on class lectures, studying the tutorials on these pages directly reinforces the studentís understanding. And in addition to homework, the drill problems provide an easy way to practice the concepts learned. However, these pages may prove most helpful in studying and preparing for tests. Students can access specific information, when help is needed in certain areas, or they can simply browse through all sections for a good review. And thus, working drill problems and examining sample graphs and pictures helps in priming for tests. Much time and effort have been put into these pages; for a student to not make use of them would be to their disadvantage.
