**NOTE**: The objective of this module is to allow you
to review and develop the manipulative skills that are
used throughout college level mathematics courses, especially
calculus. However, in courses at the University of Michigan, the
emphasis is on understanding concepts and mathematical ideas--not
basic skills. Therefore, these are *prerequisite skills*:
things that you need to have mastered to succeed at collegiate
mathematics, not things that you will focus on learning in your
mathematics courses here.

**As you work** through the module, make the
vocabulary and manipulations second nature, so that you are
to use the words and operations of mathematics quickly and
appropriately in your UM mathematics courses.

*This module was developed under the auspices of NSF grant #DUE0088264.
