MA123 Course Text

Detailed notes with the plan for each chapter (goals, main facts and problems to be discussed in class) have been written in order to assist you throughout the course. They will be used as a primary means of instruction. Your instructor may use exactly these examples, or may use similar examples so that you can review these as additional examples.

This course has about 160 pages of lecture notes and recitation worksheets. These pages can be printed on campus printers for about 12 cents per page, (see UK's IT site for current pricing information) which would total a bit less than $20. You might prefer to consider the following other alternatives:

  1. You can use your private printer to print the pages.
  2. You can view the notes on your own computer.

We recommend that you review the lecture notes before or after class. It is best to treat the original copy as a worksheet, fill in what answers you can, and only consult the versions with answers to check your work or if you get stuck.

The chapters below also include links to some video lectures. Some of these can be very helpful; others are a bit out of date and may represent material that is no longer covered in the course. If you are unsure whether a particular resource or question is important, please contact your instructor.
