Math 3 - Calculus

Study Guide

Calculus On Demand (COD) Web Site
COD (see left sidebar) gives a snap-shot of each Lecture. It is definitely the place to begin your studying because you can get an overview of what is covered in class.

The COD web site is where you can find all the materials from the textbook that are relevant to a given lecture, including both on-line and textual materials. It also has a link to the WeBWorK login for the Math 3 homework.

Homework must be submitted by 8:00 a.m. on the day it is due. The homework problem sets will be done over the web using the WeBWorK system which presents a slightly different set of problems to each student. This problem-generator allows you to get a hard copy of an assignment, input the answers, submit the problems for grading, and go over the correct answers. It even lets you review your record so that you can see how well you are doing. Moreover, you will be able to practice solving similar problems.

All Math 3 homework assignments will be posted on WeBWorK weekly, normally at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, with problem set "m3day05" on WeBWorK corresponding to "Lec 5" on the Daily Schedule.

If you can do the WeBWorK homework and understand the concepts behind the problems, you should be in good shape for the exams.

Answers to Homework
Answers to a given homework set will be available in WeBWorK at 1:00 p.m. on the day it is due.

  • Lecture Outlines:
    Professor Ionescu, Fall 2005
    Professor Trout, Winter 2010

    Here is a set of outlines from math 3 fall 2005, and another from winter 2010. The lectures labeled Lecture1[2, 3, ...] were produced originally by Professor Ionescu in 2005. Professor Trout began with those and decided to develop some of his own. They appear below as the lectures m3w10_Lecture7[8, ...]. You may or may not find these lecture outlines to be helpful. Note though that the dates and specific organizational details in 2005 and 2010 have no relevance to each other or to fall 2010. The topics also vary. So you may have to search for a particular topic that was covered in a different order from us, or you may find that it is not there at all. Instead you will find some topics included that we will not cover this term.
