**Textbook**: Simmons, Calculus
with analytic geometry, second edition.

**Syllabus:****
**as posted on the Math Dept web page and a few of the
appendices in the textbook, as need occurs and time permits.

**General information**

Every day after lecture you need
to solve the ** homework problems (click here)**.

** You are responsible for solving these problems by
the next lecture **(yes, this usually means: by 11:30 a.m. of the next
day)

Occasional **quizzes** will consist of
problems very similar to these.

The quizzes will be worth 5 points each. **No make-up quizzes** will be allowed, but
the two lowest scored will be dropped.

**Writing up and
turning in for grading:**

Homework problems listed **are a guide to help
you master the material. To achieve this goal, you may need to
solve more, or fewer such problems. These do not need to be turned
in for grading. (Keep their solutions to help you review for the
exams.)**

Among these there are problems
selected to be solved, written up and turned in for grading.

The due date will be posted on the website (*the due date is
usually on a Tuesday*). The grader will randomly choose three
problems for grading, each worth 2 points: one for a good
solution, one for a good presentation and sufficient explanations.
Always justify your answers and calculations!

**No late
homework will be accepted.**

**Writing
up solutions:
**you need to show all your work (show calculations,
provide explanations, cite theorems). An answer alone may not
receive full credit!

How do you know how detailed your explanations should be?

Imagine you need to explain to your friend how to solve that particular problem (for best results imagine a friend who questions everything before becoming convinced).

Also, I will always try (and hopefully succeed) to set a good example in class, and write on the blackboard what I would like to see in write-ups.

There will sometimes be **'Bonus problemsâ€ť** posted. These are
optional. Please do write up solutions to *bonus
problems on a separate sheet of paper *(do not forget
to write you name!), and place them *in
a separate pile* than
the regular homework.

**The final grade** will be determined by
your total number of points as follows:

Midterm exam I 100 points

Midterm exam II 100 points

Final exam 200 points

Homework and Quizzes 150 points

**Tests**: There will be two
midterm tests, which are tentatively scheduled for T Sept 22, and
T Oct 27.**
Final exam**: according to the university schedule (check
