Thomas' Calculus, Early Transcendentals 12th Edition
For some of the homework it may be helpful to have a graphing calculator, although I will not make it mandatory. The recommended calculator is TEXAS INSTRUMENTS TI89.
Single variable calculus is the mathematical study of quantities which change continuously with time. The tools found here can be applied across the sciences. Where things are moving, growing, changing, you will find calculus.
Six weeks is an incredibly short duration to learn the material we will cover. You should attend all lectures, as many office hours as you can, and strive to keep up on the reading and assignments as it is happening. Keeping up with it all will be difficult. Catching up after falling behind will be impossible.
Homework will be assigned daily, whenever a lecture is given, and will cover material related to that lecture. This homework will be collected 2 lecture days from the time it is given.
SCHEDULE of assignments and due dates.
SOLUTIONS will be posted on or shortly after HW is due, on the same page.
Homework CANNOT be turned in late. Two lowest grade homeworks will be dropped.
Final Exam 30%
Attendance is absolutely necessary for your success! Participation points are awarded for showing up and being engaged with the lecture. If you are shy in class, which is fine, make sure to ask me a few question over the duration of the course, and get to know your TA as well. Quizzes will be given on Fridays in addition to 6 pop quizzes, one given per week. Calculators can be used at home but are not permitted in quizzes or exams. A "cheat sheet" will be permitted for the exams.
