- 30%: Midterm 2
- 40%: Final
Homework will be assigned weekly but will not be collected or graded. Don't expect to pass this course unless you do the homework.
Text
The text is Thomas' Calculus, Early Trancendentals, 14th Edition.
Homework will be assigned from the 14th Edition of the text. There will be no use of MyMathLab or online homework, so all you require for the class is a hard copy or pdf file of the text.
The text is available as a lower-cost, optional e-book through the UC Davis Inclusive Access Program. Click the “Bookshelf” button in the Canvas navigation menu to access your IA Portal and e-book link. You will have 14 days to use the e-book, after which you can choose to opt in or let the access expire. For questions please email the Inclusive Access Help Desk at inclusiveaccess@ucdavis.edu
