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

**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 9:10 AM 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 will be problems selected to be solved,
written up and turned in for grading. They are due each Tuesday,
in class (unless otherwise specified on the website).

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 may 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**: The midterm exams are tentatively scheduled
for T Jan 31, T March
7**.
Final exam**:
