James Stewart "Single Variable Calculus (Stony Brook Edition)", 5th edition, Pearson Prentice Hall

This is the first of two calculus courses at Stony Brook, MAT 131 & MAT 132. It assumes that the students have a good background in Pre-Calculus topics such as linear, polynomial, trigonometric, exponential & log functions. We will explore the power of the differential calculus in understanding functions and in “real world” applications. At the end of the course will begin a discussion of the integral calculus which will be continued in MAT 132.

These are required sessions with your TA in which homework will be discussed and questions will be answered. You’ll have two sessions per week. Tests and quizzes will be returned during recitations. You will also be given quizzes in recitation, usually once per week. The grades you receive by submitting your HW through WebAssign will be half of the recitation grade. Quizzes given in class will be the other half.

Midterm 1: Wednesday September 28th, 8:45pm - 10:15pm

Midterm 2: Wednesday November 2nd, 8:45pm - 10:15pm

Final Exam: Wednesday December 14th, 11:15am - 1:45pm

Each student must pursue his or her goals honestly and be personally accountable for all submitted work. Representing another person's work as your own is always wrong. Instructors are required to report any suspected instances of academic dishonesty to the Academic Judiciary. For more comprehensive information on academic integrity, including categories of academic dishonesty, see the academic judiciary web site at http://www.stonybrook.edu/cinncms/academic-integrity/index.html
