|Description||A continuation of MAT 126, covering: sequences, series, Taylor series, differential equations and modeling. May not be taken for credit in addition to MAT 132, MAT 142, MAT 171, or AMS 161.|
|Prerequisite||C or higher in MAT 126 or level 8 on the mathematics placement examination|
James Stewart, Single Variable Calculus (Stony Brook Edition 4). |
|WebAssign||Is mandatory for this course; please make sure you purchase an access code if you do not have one already. Please note that the book and webassign are available as a package, to rent/buy, etc. Please check the purchase options available.|
|Homework||Mandatory weekly homeworks, with some part on WebAssign and some part written, to be handed in.|
|WebAssign due time||Wed 9am each week. For WebAssign, you have 3 attempts to do each problem: a problem done correctly on the first try gets 100% of the score, on the second try gets 80% of the score. After the second try you are allowed to "practice another version" of the problem on WebAssign, if available. A problem correct on the third try gets 50% of the score.|
|Written HW due date|| Please write and scan/photograph and upload your HW in blackboard by 3pm on Thursday the week the homework is due.
No late homeworks will ever be accepted, but a grade for a homework will be dropped upon request due to extenuating circumstances. Your lowest homework grade will be dropped at the end of the class
|Exams||Midterm for all sections at 8.45pm on March 3, in Earth&Space 001. FINAL WEDNESDAY MAY 13, 11.15am-1.45pm, USING TECHNOLOGY TBD. Weekly quizzes will be given via blackboard. No makeups given, grades may be dropped under documented extenuating circumstances.|
Homeworks+WebAssign: 20%, Midterm I: 20%, |
All grades will be posted on blackboard, please check them regularly.
|Attendance||Is essential to do well in the course; you'll be practicing doing the problems in lecture as well as listening; note there is no recitation.|
|Questions||All administrative questions should be covered by this webpage. Please direct questions about your written HW grading only to the
grader who graded that homework (as shown in the syllabus below), and questions about WebAssign only to Cengage support. |
For mathematical questions, we all have office hours as posted; the Math Learning Center (MLC) is also available to help you at other times. If you believe there is an error in your midterm or final grade, please see the instructor. Note that your entire exam will then be rescored again (not just one problem), and the grade will be adjusted accordingly, whether up or down.
