recitation 2 MW 3:50-4:45 Physics P 122 , TA Carl Hammarsten

FINAL IS IN PHYSICS P-117, 8-10:30am WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 17

We will follow the text `Calculus' by Jon Rogowski published by W.H. Freeman and Co. and cover Chapters 0-11.

My office hours will be MWF 10:40-11:30 in my office, 4-112 in the Math Building.

This is a Calculus course for people who have had some single variable calculus, but who are not quite ready for the next level of courses (linear algebra, differential equations, calculus of several variables). We will review the early chapters on limits, differentiation and integration very quickly and then slow down a bit to cover the chapters on exponentials, applications, differential equations and infinite series. Thus the course is a mixture of reviewing things that I expect you to know already and an introduction to other topics that you will study more carefully in later courses. Expect to move quickly and do lots of difficult problems.

Homework problems will be asssigned from the text and will be handed in at the recitation sections. The recitation instructor will grade and return the homework and go over the solutions as necessary. Unless otherwise stated, homework will be due at the Wednesday recitation of each week, starting in Week 2.

There will be an in-class midterm at a date to be announced. and a final at 8:00-10:30am on Wednesday, December 17. The final will count 40% of your grade and the midterm and homeworks will count 30% each. Weekly Schedule (tentative and approximate)Below is a list of the weeks in the semester. For each week I list the chapter I plan to lecture on and the homework for that chapter that should be turned in at recitation on the Wednesday of the following week. Also listed are special events, such as exams and holidays. Note that Oct 24 is MAT drop down day; this is the last day you can drop to a lower numbered math class without a penalty. Please let me know if I have omitted anything important.

Homework problems are listed as ``Chapter.Section.Problem'', so 1.3.4 means ``Chapter 1, Section 3, Problem 4''. Similary 2.r.5 means ``Chapter 2 Review Problem 5'' and A.5 means ``Appendix A, Problem 5.
