Textbook

"Thomas' Calculus:
Early Transcendentals, 12th Edition" by Weir/Hass
(ISBN #9780321588760).
The department decided to switch to the 12th edition of the book! It is different from the 11th edition
and the international edition. Since homework will be assigned from the book, it is advisable to use the 12th edition.
We will cover most of Chapters 2,3,4.
Chapter 1 should already be familiar.

Other Textbooks

Calculus Textbook
by Gilbert Strang. The entire content of this book is available free of charge in the pdf format. The chapters we
cover in MAT21A roughly corresponds to Chapters 1  4 of Strang. It is quite handy to carry the whole calculus
textbook in your smartphone or iPod.
Calculus on the Web by Gerardo Mendoza and Dan Reich. Their
"Calculus Book I" corresponds to our MAT 21A.

Course Grade

The course grade will be determined on an absolute scale with slight modifications using the normal distribution curve if appropriate.
An approximate guideline is
 85%  100% = A, A, A+
 70%  85% = B, B, B+
 55%  70% = C, C, C+
 45%  55% = D, D, D+
 Less than 45% = F
