ab: Summary: This article discusses preparation assignments used in a Calculus
II course that cover material from prerequisite courses. Prior to
learning new material, students work on problems outside of class
involving concepts from algebra, trigonometry, and Calculus I. These
problems are directly built upon in order to answer Calculus II
questions, allowing students to see connections across the mathematics
curriculum. Both students and the instructor can also determine what
review material warrants further discussion, so that students can be
successful in the Calculus II course. These assignments can be adapted
for use in other courses such as Calculus I, multivariable calculus,
pre-calculus, and trigonometry.
