Prerequisite material: For those of you who placed directly into math 212 and want to make sure you've learned all the material in math 211, here's a link to the web site from last school year for math 211 where you can find the 211 course syllabus. I'd also suggest students who took math 211 several years ago go back and make sure you remember the material from math 211. Math 211 uses the same textbook we are using, so if you feel shaky on some topics from 211, I'd recommend reading those sections of the book while it's still early in the semester and doing some extra exercises from those sections. You could also get help with 211 material at the help sessions, particularly since these are designed for both math 211 and 212.
