Textbook

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.)

Homework Policy


Grades

The course grade will be based upon the scores on the midterm exam, homework, quizes, and the final exam. There are two grading schemes.

Assignment Grade scale A Grade scale B
Midterm 1 20% 15%
Midterm 2 20% 15%
Final Exam 30% 30%
Quizzes 10% 10%
WebWork 10% 10%
Written homework 10% 20%

At the end of the term, you grade will be the highest of the two possible schemes.

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 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.


Tutorials

Tutorials are on Tuesdays, Thrusdays, and Sundays from 7:00-9:00 PM in Kemeny 004.


Special Considerations

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 should see the instructor as soon as possible.

Students who expect to need schedule adjustments 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.
