Math 3, Introduction to Calculus (Winter 2009)
Natasha Komarov will be holding office hours in Room 218 Kemeny Hall on Thursday from 3:00 to 5:00.
The final exam will be cumulative. That is, approximately half the exam will cover material from before the second midterm and half from after the second midterm. Professor Arkowitz will be glad to meet with students individually or in small groups to answer questions and go over problems. Just send an e-mail giving several days and times that you are available to meet.
The final exam will take place on March 13 from 8:00 to 11:00 am in Kemeny 008. The exam will not be given earlier to accomodate travel plans. For anyone who has a legitimate reason for not taking the exam at the assigned time, the exam will be given after the assigned time.
Here is a
practice final exam. This exam covers several topics that we have not covered (arc length, centroids, trapezoid rule, linearization and Newton's and Euler's methods) and has not covered several of the topics that we have covered (volumes, optimization, implicit differentiation, logarithms and exponentials, L'Hospital's Rule). Note that a solution to an initial valued problem is just a solution to the given differential equation. We do not claim that this exam will resemble our exam in format, difficulty, length or content.
Here are the
Solutions to the Second Midterm Exam.

- If you have a legitimate conflict with these exam dates and times, please contact your instructor as soon as possible. Please do not wait until shortly before the exam.
- Homework will be assigned on the Syllabus and Homework page (Homework Assignments) on each class day. The homework is to be written up and handed in. It is to be placed in the IN boxes outside the classroom before the start of the next class period. It will be collected and graded and returned in the OUT boxes, usually by the next class period. For example, an assignment made on Monday will be due before the start of Wednesday's class and will usually be returned by Friday. Appropriate modifications will be made for x-hours and college holidays. The homework assigment for the week will usually be posted on the web page at the start of the week. Late homework will not be accepted without a valid excuse. To see how the Honor Principle applies to homework, see below.
- The course grade will be based upon your total score on the two midterm exams, the final exam and the homework assignments for the course.
- On Exams: No help given or received. No calculators or computers are allowed.
- On Homework: Collaboration is permitted and encouraged -- a discussion of the general idea of the problem(s) with instructors, tutors, fellow students and others is desirable. However, each student is expected to complete his or her assignments individually and independently. Computing devices are allowed on homework.
- Tutorial assistance for this course, that is, help with your homework, will be available in 006 Kemeny Hall, Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings 7 -- 9pm. Tutorials will begin on Tuesday, January 6. The tutor is Natasha Komarov. You may contact her directly by e-mail.
- Also note that the Tutor Clearinghouse may have private one-on-one tutors available for Math 3. The tutors are students who have taken the course and have done well in it, and are trained by the Academic Skills Center. If a student receives financial aid, the College will pay for three hours of tutoring per week. If you would like to have a tutor, please click here for more information.
- A study group is a small group of students who meet together regularly once a week with the aid of a trained leader to discuss concepts, confusions and insights into course material. The main role of the study group is to help students organize their thoughts, test their understanding by asking and answering questions, learn how to approach the material and understand the basic concepts involved.
Each group is unique, contains students with different backgrounds and abilities, and determines its own pace and the material that will be covered.
- Sign-ups for study groups will take place on
Thursday, January 15, from 12 noon to 4 pm and on
Friday, January 16, from 8 am to 4 pm.
Sign-ups will take place at the Academic Skills Center, 301 Collis.
The cost is $30/term, but for
students receiving financial aid from Dartmouth, the cost is $10/term.
- Students with learning, physical, or psychiatric disabilities enrolled in this course who may need disability-related accommodations are encouraged to meet with the 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.
