*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.

Homework Policy |
---|

- There will be two components to the graded homework for this course. Webwork assignments will be posted daily and remain open until the following friday. We also require you to write up all the Webwork problems, explicitely showing all calculations you performed to get the result. These will form your written homework grade and will be collected on friday, at the beginning of the lecture.
- Late homework will receive zero credit and no excuses will be accepted. You will, however, be able to drop your two lowest homework grades - use those slots wisely.

Grades |
---|

The course grade will be based upon the scores on the midterm exam, homework, quizzes, and the final exam as follows:

Assignment | Number | Points Each | Total Points |

Midterm Exams | 2 | 100 | 200 |

Final Exam | 1 | 150 | 150 |

Quizzes | 8(-1) | 13 | 91 |

Webwork | 24 | 2.5 | 60 |

Written homework | 9(-2) | 13 | 91 |

Total | 592 points |

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.

Tutorials |

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.
