See the document first year mathematics at Stony Brook for more information about the math placement exam and other calculus courses.University Bookstore @ Stony Brook. This edition, essentially the same as Single Variable Calculus: Concepts and Contexts, 4th ed, comes with an access code for WebAssign, which we will be using this semester. You are free to use an older version of the textbook. But then you will need to buy stand-alone access for WebAssign. You can get electronic access to the text together with WebAssign access at WebAssign. You can also get electronic access to individual chapters; and then you will still need to buy access to WebAssign.
PLEASE DO THE ASSIGNED READING FROM THE SYLLABUS BEFORE LECTURE.

You are responsible for collecting any graded work by the end of the semester. After the end of the semester, the recitation instructor is no longer responsible for returning your graded work. If you have a question about the grade you received on a problem set or exam, you must contact the recitation instructor (not the grader or the lecturer). Math Learning Center. You are strongly encouraged to talk to a tutor in the MLC if you have an issue and are unable to attend your lecturer's or recitation instructor's office hours (or if you have previously arranged to meet them in the MLC).
Please be aware that tutors in the MLC deal with students on a first-come, first-served basis. Thus it may be preferrable to speak with your lecturer or instructor in their office hours. (Even if you find them in the MLC, they may be obliged to speak to other students before speaking with you.)
For students living on campus, there are also tutoring centers available in the residence halls.http://studentaffairs.stonybrook.edu/dss/. They will determine with you what accommodations are necessary and appropriate. All information and documentation is confidential.
