The Math Study Center is a great place to work on math,
WHETHER OR NOT YOU NEED HELP 
This course is an introduction to integral
calculus. We will review antiderivatives and then study the Fundamental Theorem
of Calculus. Then we will use this theorem to compute areas and volumes, as
well as a number of other applications. A variety of techniques to compute
difficult antiderivatives will be discussed. We will conclude with an
introduction to differential equations. We will essentially follow the schedule
of the Math 125 Materials Website, but will on
occasion be a bit slower or faster. If you want a good grade in this class, you
should expect to spend a lot of time (probably more than 10 hours a week) on
homework.
See the Math
125 Materials Website for information about the text book.
Your grade will be determined based on your
total score for the course, which is computed as follows:
is assigned on a weekly basis and is available on Web Assign, see the Math 125 Materials Website . It
should be finished by the following Tuesday, before the quiz section. However,
the final Web assign due date is Wednesday 11pm. No late homework will be
accepted.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays you will meet with your Teaching
Assistant in a smaller group. This gives you a chance to get more of your
questions answered. Thursday's quiz section will be 80 minutes long so that, in
addition to getting help with your homework, there will be time for a worksheet
that you can work on while the TA circulates and answers questions. On
Tuesdays, you will get help with your homework and occasionally will take a
quiz. The quiz will not be graded (solutions will be discussed in your section)
and the quiz will not count towards your grade. The quiz is meant to help you
checking your understanding, and to get used to the questions you might find on
exams. The midterm exams will be held in Quiz Section.
On Thursdays, you will work in small groups on worksheets in your
quiz section. The worksheets are an integral part of the course. Some of them
lay the groundwork for the lectures, some of them explore topics in greater
detail than in lecture, and some of them give you practice on basic techniques.
You will get full credit for each worksheet, regardless of whether you get the
right answers, if you show up and make a good effort. Print a blank copy of the
worksheet and bring it to the Thursday quiz section.
There will be 2 midterm exams. They will be given on Thursday, October 18
and Thursday, November 15.
They are meant to take 60 minutes but you can take the full 80 minutes of the
Quiz Section. You must bring a Photo ID, and you are
allowed to use one handwritten 8.5 by 11 sheet of notes (two sided). ONLY
TI30x IIS CALCULATORS ARE ALLOWED
on exams.
There are no makeup exams. If you have a compelling
and welldocumented reason for missing a test, contact
me well in advance.
The final exam will take place from 1:30pm to 4:20pm on Saturday, December 8, in
