Guide for Math 110 students who would like to take Math 114.
(1) Of the topics covered in Math 104 but not Math 110,
many are not used in Math 114. Chiefly what you should
learn in order to be perfectly prepared for 114 are
the three integration techniques taught in 8.3, 8.4 and 8.5:
These integration techniques will be useful because many of the
examples in Math 114 are contrived to end up with these integrals,
and you will be able to follow much more quickly if you know how
to do them yourself rather than to take it on faith (in lecture)
or look up how to do them (on homework).
- Integrals of some trig functions;
- Trig substitutions for integrating non-trigonometric functions;
- The method of partial fractions.
(2) Math 114 goes pretty fast. There is relatively little
hand-holding. An A-student in Math 110 should not have a problem
with the pace, but students with grades below, say, a B+ may find
the pace to be too much.
(3) On the bright side: the first few weeks of Math 114 will be
largely familiar to you. Also some useful concepts and skills
such as probability densities abd L'Hopital's rule, were heavily
emphasized in 110, perhaps more than in 104.
