What is it?  Handed out or posted 

The whole course, in just a few pages  I wrote this summary for a calc 1 class at Rutgers a few years ago. Maybe it can help some people, but you still need to practice.  12/10/2009

The ninth workshop  Please hand in a writeup of the fourth problem on Wednesday, November 11.  11/6/2009 
The eighth workshop  Please hand in a writeup of the second problem on Wednesday, November 4.  10/30/2009 
The seventh workshop  Please hand in a writeup of the fourth problem on Wednesday, October 28. Pictures are likely to be useful, but please be sure they are correctly and clearly labeled.  10/23/2009 
The sixth workshop  Please hand in a writeup of the third
problem on Wednesday, October 21. This problem asks you to
find what is called the bounding box of the ellipse. The geometric situation for the first problem, with the complicated formulas involving arcsin and arctan, is shown to the right along with the two parallel tangent lines for the special value of a which is requested in the problem. If you worked on this problem and found it annoying, this picture might help.  10/2/2009 
Answers to the first exam  Here are detailed answers to version A of the first exam with
shorter answers for other versions. Please tell me any
comments or corrections. Copies of the answers will be returned with
graded exams in lecture on Tuesday, October 13. Ms. O'Sullivan has kindly supplied a correction ($10 should be $12 in the solution to problem 6) and this correction has been made in the version posted. I thank her. Here is a discussion of the grades and grading.  10/13/2009

The writeups for the composition problem (problem 2 of workshop 3) showed that many people had difficulties with domain and range of composition. This discussion of composition and domains and ranges for two familiar functions (sine and ln) may help these people.  10/2/2009

I've taught Math 151 (same material as this course)
a large number of times before. I most recently taught Math 151 (with
the same syllabus and standards as this course) in fall 2007. A great
deal of material (including exams with solutions, review material, and
a course diary) is available here.
I'll probably copy lots of stuff from that semester.
There is also material available from the fall 2006 semester here but please realize that a different textbook was used, so course content may not be identical.
