Math 125  Autumn 2024
Welcome!
A note to the student,
from the Math Department
What if the Calculus class I wish to add is closed?
How do Hybrid and Online
sections of the class work?
Webassign:
All homework assignments will be on Webassign and you must purchase an access code. Webassign comes with an eBook version of the textbook already included.
Once the quarter starts, you will register to Webassign via your course's Canvas website. You will have free access to Webassign during the first week of the quarter. You have two options to buy Webassign: from the U Bookstore, where you will get an access code which you will then enter when Webassign asks, or you can buy Webassign online via Cengage following their links.
If you need financial assistance for
purchasing Webassign (and have filled a FAFSA form), please fillout
this form during the first couple of days of the quarter.
See the form itself for details. Please note that the form is only available
during the first couple of days of the quarter, and late submissions cannot be considered.
Textbook:
The textbook for the course is Calculus, 9th Edition, Early Transcendentals by Stewart. An electronic version of it is included with your purchase of WebAssign access mentioned above, so a paper copy is not required if you will be using the ebook for your readings. It is important that you read the textbook, though, and a paper copy may make that easier. If you wish to purchase a paper copy of the textbook, any reasonably recent edition (6th9th) of the physical textbook will serve you just as well.
Calculator:
A TI30X IIS calculator is required in any of the Math 120/124/125/126 courses. It is the only calculator you can use on the exams. We strongly suggest you use the same calculator when you do your assignments and when you practice for the exams.
Calculus Grade Policy:
The median course grades for each lecture section (or a single instructor's combined lecture sections) of Math 124/5/6 taught during the regular academic year will fall within the range of 2.9 +/ 0.2. This policy may not apply to the online or hybrid sections of Math 124/5/6.
Worksheets:
You are responsible for bringing a printout of the correct worksheet to your quiz section every Thursday. Don't do the worksheet at home, you will complete the worksheet in class. PDFs of each individual worksheet can be found under the corresponding week's Outline in the table below (as well as solutions that will become available at the end of the week.) Alternatively, click here for a pdf file with all of the worksheets for the quarter together in one file.
Accommodations:
If you need accommodations because of a disability, please contact Disability Resources for Students. For religious accommodations, please see this page. Once your forms have been approved, contact your instructor to discuss details of your accomodations.
Final Exam:
The
Common
Final Exam for all sections of Math 125
is on Saturday,
December 7 at 1:30pm.
See:
Ground Rules and Rooms.
Table of Permitted Integral Formulas:
During the final exam, you may use
directly any of the integral formulas in the table below. All other
integrals must be computed from these, using the methods taught this
quarter.
