Text: | Thomas' Calculus: Early Transcendentals, 12th Edition" by Weir/Hass (ISBN #978-0-321-58876-0).
We will cover most of Chapters 15, 12, 13, 16. |
Pre-requisite: | MAT 21C |
Problem Sets: | There will be weekly homework assignments due on Wednesdays before class.
Homeworks consist of two components: WebWork homeworks and written homeworks from the book. WebWork is an online homework system, for more information see the WebWork Wiki. The WebWork problems are graded and comprise the homework grade. No late homeworks will be accepted. The written homework from the book is assigned on a weekly basis, but is not collected for grading. Make sure to work through all the problems, however, and ask your TA to discuss the problems in the discussion sessions. A selection of these problems will appear on the midterms. |
Computing: | During class, I will illustrate some results using the open source computer algebra system Sage. When you follow the link, you can try it out yourself using Sage Online Notebook. Or you can sign up for a Class Account with the math department. Log into fuzzy.math.ucdavis.edu and type the command `sage` to launch a Sage session in the terminal. |
Exams: | There will be two Midterms on October 14 and November 4 in class.
The Final exam will be Thursday, December 8, from 6:00-8:00pm.
There will be no make-up exams! |
Grading: | The final grade will be based on:
Problem sets 10%, Midterms 25% each, Final 40%.
Grades will be recorded on SmartSite. |
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 |
