Description

This course is part of a 3-semester calculus sequence covering standard material on differential and integral calculus at an intermediate level: more sophisticated (and much faster moving) than high school calculus, but with less emphasis on theoretical rigor than in advanced courses such as Math 523. The emphasis is on basic concepts, methods, and applications suitable for students majoring in engineering, natural sciences, computer science, and mathematics.

Math 233H is not a section of the multi-section Math 233 course. It follows almost the same syllabus but has separate exams, quizzes, and homeworks. Lectures and assignments will explore concepts and ideas behind main methods on a deeper level than in the Math 233 course.

Text

Stewart, Calculus: Early Transcendentals, 5th, 6th, or 7th edition. You do not neet a WebAssign edition - all homeworks will be graded by hand.

Homework

Homework assignments will be posted weekly on the class website. They will be typically due on Tuesdays. You will have to provide complete solutions and not just answers. A correct answer with no solution will typically earn you zero credit. On the other hand, a correct solution with a minor numerical mistake might earn you some partial credit. The homework should be written neatly and stapled. For each problem, indicate the problem number clearly and box the answer. The first homework assignment is due on September 15.

Quizzes

We will have weekly 10 minute quizzes, typically on Thursdays. The first quiz will be on September 17.

Midterm exams

There will be two midterm exams held during the regular class meeting time (TuTh 1:00pm - 2:15 pm, LGRT 173). Dates of the exams: TBA.

Calculators are allowed on exams. Here "calculator" means an actual calculator, not a calculator app on a cell phone, tablet device, computer, or other electronic device. No notes, textbooks, formula sheets, etc. are allowed on any exams. Please bring your UMass ID or driver's license to the exam. Make-ups will be allowed only on medical grounds (doctor's note required).

Final Exam

The final will be cumulative, with some emphasis placed on topics covered after the second exam. You may use a calculator. No notes, etc. are allowed. The date and time of the final exam will be scheduled by the university.

Grading

A: 92-100; A-: 90-91; B+: 85-89; B: 82-84; B-: 80-81; C+: 75-79; C: 72-74; C-: 70-71; D+: 63-69; D: 60-62; F: below 60.

The numerical grade will be computed using two methods and the best grade will be used.
The first method puts more emphasis on final examination. The second method puts more emphasis on homework.

Method 1. Final exam: 35%, Exam 1: 20%, Exam 2: 20%, Homework: 15%, Quizzes: 10%.
Method 2. Final exam: 20%, Exam 1: 20%, Exam 2: 20%, Homework: 30%, Quizzes: 10%.

Two worst homeworks and two worst quizzes will be dropped.

Extra help and tutoring

The Calculus Tutoring Center, located in LGRT 140, is an awesome resource for students taking calculus. The Center is staffed by instructors and TAs on Monday-Thursday from 10 am to 3 pm.
