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.)

|Assignment||Number||Points Each||Total Points|
If you have a conflict with one of the midterm exams because of a religious observance, scheduled extracurricular activity such as a game or performance [not practice], scheduled laboratory for another course, or similar commitment, please see your instructor as soon as possible. If you must miss a class, it is your responsibility to submit all homework on time, and to arrange to get notes from a classmate.
|The Honor Principle|
Academic integrity is at the core of our mission as mathematicians and educators, and we take it very seriously. We also believe in working and learning together.
Collaboration on homework is permitted and encouraged, but obviously it is a violation of the honor code for someone to provide the answers for you.
On written homework, you are encouraged to work together, and you may get help from others, but you must write up the answers yourself. If you are part of a group of students that produces an answer to a problem, you cannot then copy that group answer. You must write up the answer individually, in your own words.
On WeBWorK assignments, each person in the class has the potential to receive a homework assignment distinct from anyone else's, 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.
On exams, you may not give or receive help from anyone. Exams in this course are closed book, and no notes, calculators or other electronic devices are permitted.
Adenrele Adewusi, Zachary Traynor and Elias Howey are the tutors for the course. One of the three of them will be available from 7-9 PM on every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday in Kemeny 201. They are also available for individual tutoring, this should be arranged by contacting your instructor to request the email addresses of the tutors.
Students with disabilities who will be taking this course and may need disability-related classroom and/or exam accommodations are encouraged to make an appointment to see the instructor as soon as possible. Also, they should stop by Student Accessibility Services in Collis Center to register for support services.
Students who expect to need schedule adjustments for religious reasons or because of commitments to jobs, athletics, or other extracurricular activities, should see the instructor as soon as possible. Such adjustments are not always possible, but may be possible with sufficient advance notice.
Students with any other concerns about the course are likewise encouraged to see the instructor as soon as possible. Students with no concerns are also invited to come to office hours to introduce themselves.
