The Course

This course is an introduction to integral calculus. We will review antiderivatives and then study the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. 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. If you want a good grade in this class, you should expect to spend at least 10 hours a week on homework.


Your grade is determined by how you do relative to the class as a whole. Grades will be based on total points earned. There are 320 possible points:

will be assigned daily, see the WebAssign site for the problems due. You are responsible for all the problems assigned (ie: any of it could appear on the exams). The problems assigned during the week will be due at 11pm on the following Tuesday.

Rules for taking exams

Quiz section

On Tuesdays and Thursdays you will meet with a 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. Most weeks there will be a quiz on Tuesday. The midterm exams will be held in Quiz Section.

The TA's are:

Calculus, Early Transcendentals by James Stewart
(The Seventh Edition).

The only thing that students are required to purchase for this course is an access code for Webassign.

The textbook for the course is "Calculus" by Stewart, vol.1 available in the UW bookstore. This is a portion of the hardbound text "Calculus, 7th Edition, Early Transcendentals" by Stewart. Either text will work. The custom version vol. 1 covers Math 124/5 at the UW. The custom version vol. 2 covers Math 126/324 at the UW. In addition to the textbook, you will need a "Webassign access code". You can purchase this code bundled with the textbook at the bookstore OR you can purchase a standalone access code which contains the ebook. If you purchase the code and ebook at the bookstore it is around $95.

The cheapest option is to follow this link and purchase LOE access to Webassign for $80. This will come with an electronic version of the text. The LOE code will also work for Math 125, 126 and 324 as long as the 7th edition is in use.


will be assigned daily, see the WebAssign site for the problems due. You are responsible for all the problems assigned (ie: any of it could appear on the exams).


There is a required calculator for Math 124. It is the Texas Instruments TI-30X IIS which can be purchased from many places for well under $20. The UW Bookstore carries orange ones, which they will buy back at the end of quarters, but any color is acceptable for Math 124.

You should show all work not doable on a scientific calculator. For instance, when you solve a quadratic equation, steps must be shown even if your graphing calculator can produce the solutions. Reading a numerical solution from a graph on a calculator is never sufficient.
