## Am I prepared mathematically for 206?

The pre-requisite for this course is either MATH 151
"*Engineering Mathematics*" or MATH 171 "*Analytic Geometry and
Calculus*". You must have a working knowledge of plane geometry,
trigonometry, and algebra. As the semester progresses you will also be
expected to have a working knowledge of derivatives and integrals, and
be proficient in the use of vectors (addition, subtraction, dot and
cross products).

Below are some simple math quizzes that
you may want to try to test how prepared you are for this course —
*without* a calculator! They are
* not* mandatory, but you

**should**try them no matter what you think your background is; they should only take 10–15 minutes each. If you can get over 80% of them relatively easily within ~15 minutes, you should be okay. If not, you are probably below average with respect to the math background for this class and you should work at making sure you master the basics (trigonometry, geometry, algebra, differentiation and integration—everything in Appendix B of the textbook) ASAP.
