Calculus: Early Transcendentals (seventh edition) by James Stewart
(Available at Wheelock Books. However. While it's good for you to read along to make sure you master the material, the homework will for the most part not be assigned from the book, and in cases when it might, the whole problem will be spelled out in the homework. We therefore recommend that you get any of the recent editions - the sixth is certainly recent enough and easy to come by - either in hard copy or digital, and feel free to look for the cheapest option.)

Optional: How to Ace Calculus: The Streetwise Guide by Adams, Hass and Thompson
This is found by many to be a useful, accessible resource.

One lowest grade in quizzes and two lowest grades in written homework will be dropped.

The Honor Principle

On Exams and Quizzes: No help given or received

On WebWork: Each person in the class has the potential to receive a homework assignment distinct from anyone elses, but all cut from the same mold. For example if the problem were to find the minimum of ax^2 + bx + c, each student would receive their own values of a, b, and c.

Collaboration on homework is permitted and encouraged, but obviously it is a violation of the honor code for someone to just provide the answers for you and you should write your solutions. This means that we encourage you to solve the problem together and then write it up separately, without looking at what other students are handing in.


Tutorial assistance for this course is available in Kemeny 004, on tuesdays and thursdays from 7PM to 10PM, on sundays from 6PM to 7:30PM.

Disabilities, Religious Observance, Etc

Students with disabilities enrolled in this course and who may need disability-related classroom accommodations are encouraged to make an appointment to see your instructor before the end of the second week of the term. All discussions will remain confidential, although the Student Accessibility Services office may be consulted to discuss appropriate implementation of any accommodation requested.

Some students may wish to take part in religious observances that occur during this academic term. If you have a religious observance that conflicts with your participation in the course, please meet with your instructor before the end of the second week of the term to discuss appropriate accommodations.
