TEXT: Soo T. Tan; Applied Calculus; Brooks/Cole (Fifth edition).

GENERAL: We will cover 12.4 and most of the material from Section 6.2 to Section 11.7. It is important that you read the assigned sections of the text before the highlights of the material are discussed in lecture. It is a good idea to try to do the examples in the text by yourself, before reading how they are done. You are responsible for all the assigned material, regardless of whether or not it is discussed in class, though you can expect that what is covered in class will be emphasized on the exams. It is particularly important not to fall behind in the course.

EXAMS: There will be two in-class exams and a final exam. Make-up exams will be given only in the case of well-documented illness or major emergency or (only with permission in advance) of a major outside commitment.

CALCULATORS: Calculators such as the Texas Instruments 82 may be used on quizzes, but not on exams. Calculators with a QWERTY keyboard are considered computers and are not permitted at all.

RECITATION: Each recitation will involve a combination of activities: discussion by the instructor of assigned homework problems; quizzes on current material. Homeworks will not be collected.

GRADING: Grading will be based on a weighted average of all work: quizzes and class participation, 20%; in-class exams, 20% each; final exam, 40%.
