The independent study procedure is fairly simple: read the material for a unit, do as many of the recommended problems as you need to feel comfortable with the material, take a sample test, then go get an instructor type person to give you a real unit test [*]. Repeat for the next unit until out of units. Finally, there is a final. Don't worry, it's not too big. It covers material from the entire course. Sample tests are in both Xdvi or Portable Document Format (PDF); the latter requires Adobe Acrobat Reader.

There are several ways that you can do the reading for a unit. One
option is to just read the indicated World Web Math entries, when they
are available. Another is to do the readings from a textbook
(Currently, only **Calculus with Analytic Geometry** by Simmons is
supported.) Probably the best way is to do both.

- Unit 1: Limits and Continuity
- Unit 2: Differentiation
- Unit 3: Trigonometry and the Chain Rule
- Unit 4: Graphing
- Unit 5: Applications of the Derivative
- Unit 6: Integration
- Unit 7: Logarithms and Exponentials
- Unit 8: Areas, Volumes, and Surface Areas
- Unit 9: Methods of Integration
- Unit 10: Infinite Series
- Sample Final Exam, Xdvi or PDF (PDF requires Adobe Acrobat Reader).
